Been wearing glasses since I was 11. Wore contacts from age 15 to 27. Then I started having kids. Couldn't wear contacts anymore but started not cheaping out on glasses getting some fun pairs. Now I just turned 40 and suddenly I'm starting to wear contacts a bit more again. So funny how these hormones affect us. Love the name of this group.

Yeah, I actually bought my current pair online for such a steal and though I love them dearly, I could really use some new ones... I could also use an eye exam while I'm at it, lol. Plus, I'm out of contacts and would really like to buy some more of those too... my eyes are ridiculously high maintenance, :)

I totally loved glasses when I was a kid, too. I had great vision, better than 20/20 because I made my eyes work so extra hard! In fact, I kept doing that until they just gave up the fight.

I need new ones!

Hi, I am Kelsey, I'm 25 and I have been wearing glasses for 4 years, although I argued with my parents for about 4 years before that. I thought I legitimately needed them at 17 when I could hardly see the board from the middle and back of the room in my junior year Spanish class. My parents thought I was making up stories. Of course I was wrong until I went to get my license renewed and even the worker there told me I needed glasses pronto. It kind of worked out because I was always jealous of people with glasses as a kid. I seriously thought glasses and contacts were some rite of passage into cool. Now I get to be cool everyday. emoticon

Hello all,
I am Misty. I have worn glasses and contacts off and on for the last 12 years. I have contacts, but I would much rather wear my glasses!
I really only wear my contacts when I wear my hair in a headband, because it never fits quite right when I have my glasses on. Anyone else have this problem?

Hello, I'm Una (pronounced like you were going to say universe) I am 38, I have 1 daughter that is 21 and 1 19 yr old-step-son. I am married and I wear glasses, because I can not find contacts that are comfy to me. I am here to get & stay healthy.
Here are a few tidbits of info about me.

Favorite Summer Activity: sitting on front porch reading, walking through parks right before sunset & vactions with the family.
Favorite Winter Activity: I'm not a winter fan AT ALL!!
Hobbies: reading, watching OLD B&W movies, blogging.
Favorite Color: Greens & blues
Favorite Food: Mexican & pasta dishes
A habit you want to change: over eating & not working out

List three things you want your team to know about you?
1. I am a HUGE Beyonce' fan
2. I want to be healthy
3. I love stiletto's

I want to of course lose some weight but I honeslty want to be healthy again. I want to walk up the stairs without getting out of breathe so quickly and be able to shop at more then just a few select stores & squeeze into the biggest size pants that they have.

emoticon

Nothing taste as good as being thinner will feel!!!

Goal to lose 60 pounds by the end of 2011!!

This is who I am now, my only hope is this is not who I will remain.

I'm Jenny, I'm 29 and just got glasses in January of this year. I have always had perfect vision up until I had thyroid surgery in 2009, so I wonder if that did something to my vision. All of my close friends and husband have had glasses for years, so me finally needing to get some was totally natural for me like it was supposed to happen.

*(I need to get a pic of me in my glasses added to my page.)

I am totally a glasses girl. Glasses are sexy, fun and cool. Where would Lisa Loeb, Edith Head, Tina Fey and Blossom Dearie be without them?

I absolutely LOVE this team!! I started wearing glasses when I was 14. Wore contacts for 35 years and now am back to glasses again.

I used to hate wearing glasses, but I really do like them now. And I loved the MM movie, too. Made me feel a little better back in the day wearing the glasses.

I just found this awesome team through Wolfkitty's spark page. What a great idea! I have terrible eyes and have worn glasses or contacts most of my life. Lately, for about the past 10-15 years, I embraced the glasses vs. the contacts because I work in an office setting and it's way too dry to deal with contacts. Plus I think glasses are sexy with a capital "S"! I am also a writer, but it's my dream to be a librarian someday.

Hi my name is Jen and I've been wearing glasses for about 11 years now. I tried contacts once for a few days and they were just too much hassle for me.

My eyes really aren't good so my glasses go on as soon as I wake up and they come off right before I lay down for bed. If I take them off during the day and set them down it takes me way too long to find them because I can't see much without them.

I love my glasses and get compliments on them all of the time. Plus, every guy I've ever dated liked them too (I think it's a sexy librarian fantasy!). So I don't have any reason to switch to contacts.

I always felt I was a "glasses girl"... I'm not sure why, especially considering I didn't start wearing them until I was almost 30! :)

Now as my face is getting smaller, my glasses are looking too big. It was hard to find my first pair of frames, and I'm not sure how I'm going to find the next. But that's kind of okay since I can't afford them right now. LOL.

Hey ladies, I think I belong here! It's funny how there seems to be a Spark Team for everything and everyone.

I've been on Spark for about 3 weeks and it's going well. I've lost 5 pounds and don't feel achey like I'd been feeling for a while. Drinking water definitely helps me, and focusing on eating lots of healthy fruit and veggies.

And... in other news, I just got a new pair of glasses! Hooray! I'm waiting for them to be made. I haven't had new frames in about 5 years, so .... exciting!

Eating well and moving around feels great!

Hi my name is Joannie and I am from Thunder Bay, ON Canada. I have been wearing glasses since I was 5. I have worn contacts since I was 16 but now that I am getting older - I need bifocals and bifocal contacts just don't cut it.
I love my new glasses and think glasses are sexy!!

Hi, I'm Danielle and I live in Michigan. I've had glasses for like 11 years now. They got broken at work a few months ago and while I was waiting for my new pair I felt naked! I just got contacts, but they just aren't working for me... I know it takes time, but glasses are soooo much easier! Anyway, glad to be here and hope to get to know you girls!

Hi everyone, my name is Lorena and I live in San Diego. I'm originally from Los Angeles, but I moved to SD in 2003, when I got married.

I have worn glasses since the 7th grade, and I'm 30 now, so you can do that math ;) I've worn contacts various times, but after the third time of my eye being cut by them, I decided no more! The last time that happened was just a year ago. They've always been soft contact lenses, but I guess I've had horrible luck with them. And anyway, I feel like my glasses are a part of who I am. They go on first thing in the morning, and they are the last thing to come off at night. :)

Nice to meet everyone!
I'm glad to be a part of this team!

Hey Team!
I just recently started embracing wearing glasses after about 23 years wearing contacts. My eyes just got fed up and I was forced to wear my glasses. Then I realized how easy it is to just wake up and throw them on and I got hooked. Now I'm trying to transition to glases after so many years. I just got my first new pair of 'cute ones', check out my recent blog with photos.

Nice to meet you all!
Amy

Hi everyone! My name is Stephanie. I live in Illinois. I just got my first pair of glasses on Monday. I love them. I really don't have to wear them all the time. Mainly when I am driving or at school to see the front board. Anywho...I work full time doing clerical work. It is okay for now, but I am going to school for what I really want to do. In 1 1/2-2 years, I will be an elementary school teacher. Besides that...I have been married for 3 1/2 years and we have a beagle/basset hound mix. Her name is Roxy. She is the most adorable dog ever. :)

Hi everyone! I've been bespectacled ever since the second grade, when I found out the problem wasn't that my teacher wasn't writing hard enough with the chalk on the board (I kept asking her to write harder, too, until I got my eyes checked! lol). I'm 30 now, which means I've been through the giant plastic glasses of the 80's, and the still ridiculously large wire-frames of the 90's. I'm happy to say that I love my glasses now, and love how many cute styles of glasses there are out there! I wear my glasses most of the time, occasionally interspersed by "contact days", on which I get a lot of comments like, "I didn't know how green your eyes were!" -bwah haha, thank you, tinted lenses!

We are most defined by what we choose to do.

i've been wearing glasses since i was 12. when i finally got my eyes examined as a child the doc told my mom i'd be wearing glasses for the rest of my life. i've never felt self concious while wearing glasses. actually it's been the opposite. i've never felt comfortable in contacts. i did wear them for my wedding because i didn't want a memory filled with squinting.

Hi, I'm Angie and I've been wearing glasses since the 4th grade! I used to wear contacts in high school, but I still couldn't see as "clear" as I do with glasses. They say my eyes are so bad that not even Lasik will help me :-( I think I look better with glasses anyway :-)

Hello - my name is Jeri and I have been wearing contacts or glasses forever. I wore contacts for about 25 years and then gave them up. My eyes started drying out and it was more trouble than it was worth. It is so nice to find a team with people that wear glasses. I say that because I have always felt like there is a stigma attached to wearing glasses and somehow we are not as bright, sexy or fun as our non wearing glasses counterparts. My husband likes me in glasses - I am still trying on a daily basis to accept myself in glasses, after all these years. I can't get my eyes fixed, they are too bad and would entail something like the type of surgery they do on cataracts. No thanks, only have one set of eyes, bad yes, but still functional.

Hello Ladies!My name is Sarah, I'm 30 and from Milwaukee and I LOVE wearing my glasses. I think I have worn my contacts 3 times in the past year. Only when I know I am going somewhere really sunny and I want to wear sunglasses (don't have prescription sunglasses yet). I love all the cute styles. I don't have a pic of my newest glasses in my photo gallery, but hope to soon. They are super cute - rectangle with fancy scrolly bronzework on the sides. Love 'em. I'm glad finally someone is acknowledging that women can look hot in glasses! My hubby loves me in glasses - better than without. Glad to be part of the team!

Hi, I'm Kati. I have been wearing glasses since I was 6, so about 23 years now. When I first got them I was so nerdily excited about it that I ran up to the principal at school and showed him my new specs. I went through a brief contacts phase in high school, but I missed the ease of just jumping out of bed and throwing on my glasses. My prescription is pretty steady now so I might branch out and start collection going.

Hi there. I'm Dawn and way excited about this team! I looove just about anything to do with eye wear. Over the last 2 years I have collected TEN pairs of eyeglasses. Crazy - I know. I have THREE sunglasses with prescription and THREE without 'cause I also wear contact lenses. I love to swim so I have ONE pair of prescription goggles too. Can you say addicted?! I think in all I've worn glasses and contacts about 13 years even though I've also had lasik surgery (I WAS very, very, very near-sighted at one time. Now I'm only a little near-sighted with some astigmatism.) Oh, any by the way...this is also my career! Yep. I sell, make and dispense spectacles in Colorado.

Hi, I'm Janna. I just got glasses about 6 months ago and I'm a big fan. It's great to actually see real objects and not just blurry mess. And I'm not having those awful headaches from squinting anymore. But I'm still getting used to glasses and I sometimes forget to put them on...

Never thought I would join a group based on glasses but I like that this group is smaller and that every profile is someone who looks friendly and down to earth. Who knew girls with glasses were so great?

Hello, my name is Angelique, I am from Baton Rouge, La. I have been wearing glasses now for about 15 years. I joined SP back in January when I quit smoking and decided to diet to ward off gaining weight from quitting. Well it has been almost eight months and starting two seperate diet plans and three different exercise programs....I am finding out what really works....and it is blogging with wonderful helpful beautiful motivating people. I would have thought the more I sat at the computer the more I gained or rather didn't lose..but I actually gain knowledge instead of weight. WOOHOO.

Well I must go for now. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Hey there, I have had glasses since I got pregnant in 1995. I don't like contacts at all. I am currently on a low carb diet due to high sugar levels.

Hi I'm Elysia. I used to hate wearing glasses but have been embracing them more. I've needed them for about 2 decades now. Wore mostly contacts & am just getting into wearing my glasses & liking them now. I finally found a pair that I am okay with how they look on me. Contacts are really irritating for me since I have pretty dry eyes, so it's good that I am finally wearing glasses. Plus my husband finds it sexy for a woman to wear glasses too. I'm glad about that. It helps me feel a bit better about transitioning into wearing them most of the time. I have always had self-esteem & self-image issues, so it's great to be finally working through that & accepting myself with all of my faults & quirks. Another quirk that I get self-conscience over is that no matter how hard I have tried to not shake my rearend when I walk it always seems like I am shaking it bigtime or I'm walking so stiffly that I look like a rod is shoved up my backside or something and a big part of it is that one of my vertebrea has an extra bone growth that branches out & connects it to my right hip bone, so my x-rays are a little different than most people's and my spine will move with my hip movements more. So I am either shakin' it baby or I'm like a stiff tinman when I walk. I get overly self-conscience because people are always making comments about how I'm shaking my butt for attention or I'm really stiff & stuck-up looking...for me there is no happy medium, so I'm stuck with people viewing me that way when they see me walk by. It is very annoying. And some people can be pretty rude at times too. Well, none of us are perfect & we each have our own quirks that make us different from everyone else.

Smile...it's bound to brighten someone else's day!
Everywhere we go we should see the beauty that is there, even in the dreariest places we may see a star at night, the sun during the day, a tiny little plant growing, hear a bird singing, or maybe even see a breathtaking sight such as snow on a mountain or a stream full of life. We all should take a second to pay attention to these wonderful things.

Hi I'm Jess. I've worn glasses ever since the third grade, and I'm so excited to find this group! I'll admit, I wear contacts too, which I love, but some times I really just have to rock out my glasses. :) I look forward to getting to know all you lovely ladies!

*Hugs*

I'm Sarah, and I've had glasses since I was 8. I had contacts for about a year in highschool, but the summer before university started, they began to irritate my eyes, so I made the switch back to frames. I think I look better with the glasses, but it's inconclusive. Whatever, haha.

Hi, I'm Trisha. I got my first pair of prescription glasses when I was 11 years old. The optometrist said I only had to wear them to see the chalk board at the front of the classroom, but he'd prefer I wore them all the time. It was my first year in a public school, and my 11th year of being the fat kid, so I wasn't particularly excited to give the kids at my new school yet another reason to make fun of me. Is it any wonder that 20 years later I still leave my glasses at home?

I've only worn glasses for 1 year now. I had great vision as a child, but unexplained headaches. Although I didn't have my vision checked often, when I did they said it was fine.

I actually think that I've been overexerting my eyes my whole life. I was just really good at FORCING them to do the extra work to find the tiny print, etc.

For almost two years, my eyes would get blurry after staring at the computer at work, or working long days. Eventually my eyes were becoming blurry every afternoon. I finally went to get them checked. And even though I tried to focus them sharply, I still ended up with one eye that's a little farsighted (and has a slight astigmatism).

Now that I've had time to get used to wearing glasses, and my eyes haven't been straining so hard, my vision is still kinda blurry. I probably need a stronger prescrip, plus my right eye that didn't have any prescription probably actually needs one. ;)
