I do not like that I need them, but I'm grateful to live in these times where I can have such excellent protective (I mean corrective--was thinking about how they double as shooting glasses) lenses. :-)
Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

Why isn't there any "No, I do not need glasses" option? :/

I've had glasses since i was five. For a long time, they were of the thick bifocals in dorky huge wire frames variety. I got such a complex about them that when my mother gifted me with hard contacts at thirteen, I refused to be seen outside my room in anything but those damned hard contacts for ten years. Then my eyes changed shape enough to wear normal contacts, but I discovered the world of fun, pretty glasses and lost interest in contacts. I now have nines frames, two of which are sunglasses. I'm always on the hunt for more. (I actually have my eye on a couple of frames in particular, but we'll see when I can budget them in.) I do have a few pairs of contacts in a cabinet for emergencies or dressing up, but I'm lazy and just stick to matching my glasses to my clothing for the day. I have finally embraced my four-eyed destiny. (It helps that I look better with them on than without.) My eyes are currently -5.50 on the right and -5.25 on the left, with the left still a bit astigmatic. They actually improved significantly over the last couple of years (used to be -6.25 and -6.00). The Dr. says it's because one's eyes plateau at about 30. I think it's because magic.
Here's a crappily-lit cell photo of my current lensed collection:
And now you know.
I was made to love magic, all its wonder to know.
But you all lost that magic, many many years ago.

I wish my prescription wasn't so heavy (i'm close to legally blind) or that I could afford surgery (yay being a student), but otherwise, I feel okay in glasses.
I always have to have hipster frames due to lens thickness, though, even with ultralights, and they're far too expensive (lenses alone are $350) to have more than one pair. Alas.
YOU SUCH A JOLLY MR. SNOWMAN
