What do you all think of glasses? Are they old-fashioned in this day and age what with all the laser surgery and stuff... I think that there was a phase a while back when a load of celebs randomly started wearing specs! I like the idea of different coloured contact lenses.

The majority of people who wear glasses are nerds. Reading is bad for your eyes. If you read alot when younger you will probably need glasses in your late teens early 20's even if you have genetically perfect eyes.

Unfortunatly I must have fallen into this catagory when younger and now wear contact lenses sometimes. I will probably have laser surgery in the next 5 years or so if they get any worse.

Glasses make you look intellectual. Especially coupled with a white coat and shiny stethoscope. Oh, the memories of Dr. Victoria Merrick off Holby City

There's nothing wrong with glasses! They can look very sophisticated and even sexy

Still I'm glad I don't have to wear them

i think that it shouldnt be a problem... you just gotta get used to them! although, some people to have astigmatic (sp?) eyes, in which case you need to have special contacts.

No it is not. It is scientifically proven. Children who read printed text a lot when younger develop poor eyes. When reading text you only use a small percentage of your eye, which over time causes the other parts of your vision to become cloudy, which eventually causes short sighted-ness. The simple way to remedy this is to tell your children to take a 30 sec break every 20 mins and look out of the window across the horizon, by doing so using the whole eye again.

:eek: so that includes monitors too?
tammy is that because your eyes are too sensitive? i think that might be a factor... the laser treatment seems a bit suspect to me!
