    I need to wear glasses in the near future (currently waiting for appointment) for minor short-sightedness, and am feeling really worried about how people will react and if I will look silly with glasses. Read loads of stuff about how bothersome they are , and wondered about other people's experiences?

    Is it that bad? Are the difficulties manageable?

    So so worried :/

    I have worn them for over 10 years and have thought nothing of it

    I find it helps to get ones with black rims that are kind of thick, some glasses do look worse than others but I find these ones okay

    Take the time to find a pair that suit you.



    And pay no attention to morons.
    You need them to see, so wear them. After the first few days you won't even notice they're there.

    This is true. Mine are made of clear plastic and the lenses are transition with a green tinge.

    I've been wearing glasses for about 10 years now but generally wear contacts when I go out. It takes a while to get used to the feeling of wearing them but it eventually becomes more natural. The trick is to find a pair that suits your face so make sure you try on loads of different styles.

    I've been given glasses but don't wear them. They make eyesight even worse and dependable

    Acetate, rather than plastic. Me too.
