    It doesn't really annoy me, I just think "haha, what a ****" whenever I see it. Yeah, it was cool a few years ago, but not now every wannabe hipster owns a pair. I hate it when people only follow trends once they've become "safe".

    It bugs me too, as a fellow myopic. I've worn glasses since I was 6. It's a facking nightmare most of the time and these people really take the biscuit with their fake glasses with no bloody lenses in them.

    Oh and to add insult to injury I can't even HAVE big frames!! My eyesight is sooooo horrendous, I have to have small frames to accomodate the ridiculously thick lenses. Baaaaaaah humbug.
    hah, i could have written this post, I am exactly the same!

    You really suit your glasses though :yes:

    I got new ones on Monday :cool:

    can't be as bad as mine, I'm -5 in my right eye!
    I'm -8 in one and -9 in the other (that's my new prescription from a week ago)

    I can hardly see a thing without my glasses even if it's really close up about a few feet away, things are still blurry. The good thing, though, is that my eyesight is great with my glasses (or contacts!) :love:

    people wearing glasses when they don't need to :nn:

    Wow, like congratulations or whatever.

    I thought my eyesight was bad: I have a -3 prescription, and my gran's is -0.3... Lmao, but yeah, I think it's pretty pretentious and stupid to wear glasses when you don't actually require them to see. Still, I've resigned myself to the fact that most of the people who wear them are also the ones who were arrogant ****s to kids who wore glasses in school, and who generally have no grasp of fashion beyond whatever's currently stocked in Urban Outfitters. Just saying...

    what's your point? someone asked me, it's not as if I came in here announcing it for no reason.

    what a ridiculous comment.

    Prescription glasses- no matter how visually liberating they are they have always been a bit socially inhibiting. This tend is a strange one.

    As a wearer of thick prescription glasses (since I was 13) i'm getting a bit annoyed with this trend as it has cause people to moan about paying a tenner for a set of fake ones. First they don't need them in the first place! Secondly as anyone who wears glasses will know they are usually a tad more expensive than £10. I'm sure people with a genuine need for glasses would happily swap.
