    So is the old saying, "Guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses" true or is that hangup a thing of the past?
    I've worn glasses since I was 6 months old - I've gotten plenty of dick, too. If it prevented me from getting some that's probably a good thing

    I've never considered glasses to be anything other than a necessity.
    I try to get them so *I* don't notice them - I can't stand *seeing* dark edges of the frame when I'm driving, etc. . . I could care less what others think nor do I ever notice someone else's glasses.

    I think, though, that there are *styles* that are dated to an era in the past - massively large globes are dated to the 70's and 80's. Overly ornate frames are pegged to the 60's and 70's. Black and thick is the 80's, as well.

    I try to avoid 'dated' glasses - and anything resembling coke-bottles purely because I use to have them and I really couldn't stand seeing them around my eyes.

    but that's the adult-me with my mature view.

    As a kid I hated them, begged and begged for years to get contacts. When I *finally* got contact lenses I couldn't stand the maintenance and eye-drops and all that, I also felt odd and naked without my glasses on (20 years of wearing makes it VERY habitual) - so I stopped wearing contacts and likely won't go to them ever.

    I, also, have no desire for more surgeries - I have issues beyond 'near/far' sighted and have had several corrective surgeries - and loath the idea. They're *just* glasses - not worth *that* drama.

    Most of my frames are dark and squareish, like my profile pic. I've worn glasses since the age of 3 and I'm 41 now... I used to HATE them, but now I actually PREFER them.

    Anyway.. just wondering about lasik and if it's worth it, or if I should just stick with specs.

    I got lasik just before I turned 21 and it is cool. I at times really miss having my glasses because they fit my nerdy personality better, but when it comes to playing sports it is nice not having to wear glasses or contacts. Also when I am stumbling and tripping all over Boston drunk it is nice to know I can't lose or break my glasses.

    I've worn glasses as long as I can remember. (and oddly, my eyes have gotten *better* over the years) I wear contacts sometimes, just depends on what I'm doing. Never had any problem getting guys Honestly, never really been too self-conscious about my glasses, though. I require them to see, and that's just that.

    I wear glasses as a necessity, never saw them as an accessory. But it has never stopped me being approached

    I don't get this new fad with those ugly huge glasses that cover half the face.

    I think I have those ugly huge glasses you speak of.

    I was a teenager in the 80's and now THOSE were some huge, ugly glasses! LOL I actually LIKE my glasses now, even if someone else thinks they are huge and ugly.

    Edit to add: My lenses ARE pop bottles.. I am very myopic.

    Didn't you know, looking like a stoned blowfly is all the fashion.
