Yes, since 7th grade. Tried contacts, but the longer I wore them the harder it was to make myself put them in every morning. Finally decided it wasn't worth it and went back to glasses.

Started wearing glasses in the 7th grade. Then burst blood vessels from diabeties caused me to have surgery which caused cateracs, then had both cateracs removed and now only wear reading glasses. I actually like the dollar store kind then my prescriptions reading glasses go figure....LOL

I have worn glasses since I was about 13 and probably should have had them earlier but I didn't tell my parents I was having trouble. Actually, I didn't realize that I was having trouble until I got the glasses and a whole new world opened up. emoticon My glasses are now bifocals. I usually take them off to read as I am near-sighted and I see close up better without glasses.

I wear reading glasses in all different strengths since it depends on what I'm doing as to which pair I need. I have probably close to 20 pairs of them stashed all over the house and in the car...lol. One of these days I will break down and go to the eye doctor for some bi focals.

I've worn glasses since I was 11 months old. I briefly tried contacts back in the 80's but I couldn't wear them. Back then I was told I couldn't wear the soft ones so I had to try to hard ones and they were rough and scratchy on my eyes. Within a month I was back wearing my glasses.
