    Tomorrow I become a specky!

    Well, I got 40.5 years out of them, but following an eye test on Tuesday I have to bow to the inevitable. I'm farsighted. So at lunch tomorrow I go to pick up my 2 pairs of Jasper Conrans 'Non-gittish' range glasses from the opticians, and yes, I'll post a piccy for you all to have a giggle at once I get back into the office.

    I've often thought of contacts BUT as I often fall asleep whilst working its probably not advised and I don't fancy messing with fluids etc, plus I like my Quicksilver frames they are great Also have a pair of those super flexie ones you can screw up and they just spring back normal but there just too light feeling for me to enjoy wearing.

    Wear them with pride Chris its nothing to be worried about

    Being of an age where I occasionally take a short nap, I have no problems with my soft lenses, I've been wearing them since you had to 'boil' them overnight.

    Eugh ive been wearing glasses since i was 10! I wear contact lenses mostly now. Daily lenses ftw!

    I made myself giggle a few weeks ago. I woke up and popped my glasses on but got freaked out as my vision was blurry, but when i took them off my eyesight was fine. I thought it was either a miracle or i'd been bitten by a spider...... but then i realised id slept in my lenses :/

    I was prescribed glasses for computer use about 5 years ago. Had another eye test about 2 years ago and I was then told I no longer needed glasses.

    Once a specky, not always a specky (in rare cases lol)

    I highly recommend laser eye surgery! One of the best things I ever did!

    My brother claims that as well. He was always smashing glasses so probably has saved money in doing the laser eye thing.

    I've worn glasses since I was about 13, I actually quite like wearing them as I have a slightly (ok a majorly) receeding hair line, and the glasses break up my face a bit. Pain the the backside sometimes thou, I managed to lose a pair in a crowd at a festival once - got knocked straight off my face. Not only did that make it very difficult to find my way round (as I'm seriuously blind without them) but I had to find a way of getting a new pair before the festival ended as I had to drive home - that was not much fun!

    There's a moral to that story - if you need them for driving, keep a spare pair in your glovebox!

    Mike.

    I've finally got round to booking a new eye test after getting shafted by Tesco with my last lot, currently wearing some with a 3 year old prescription which isn't good.
