    I wear contacts the majority of the time, but glasses for when I can't be bothered to put in the lenses, or when my eyes start to itch from them.

    It must be painful for a while afterwards, and it can go wrong, although i'm not too sure about the risks. Obviously i wouldn't get it until I need to wear glasses permenantly (which will be sometime). It would be awful if it went wrong though!

    I wear glasses while I'm awake. My eyes are seriously bad. I can't see a thing without them. But, interestingly, I play basketball without them.

    It is something I would like, however I wouldn't consider it until I was over 25, as you need to be sure your eyes have stopped growing, otherwise it is pointless to have surgery. Also it costs a lot .

    Cool, I was thinking of maybe getting it done, but yeah, if you have to make sure your eyes have stopped growing then maybe not! Though i wonders how I will be able to afford it after uni!

    Apart from anything, you have to keep doing it as your eyes deteriorate. Surely it's easier just to wear glasses.

    I can't see a thing without my eyes either.

    I almost always wear sunglasses when I go out now...maybe it's just me, but it seems so bright this summer.

    Nah, just people who don't wear glasses are less likely to look at this thread.

    Folks who need glasses to read the numberplate in your driving test - this means it will be a legal requirement for you to wear glasses or lenses at all times when driving. If you have an accident and aren't wearing them, there could be trouble. I never go out without them if I'm going to be driving.
