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.

This is as much of a revelation as what you getting your hair cut was a while ago Wear them with pride! If you get too much stick you might be able to try contact lenses?

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!

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.
