RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 12/07/14
RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

I first got glasses in the 7th grade. From the 'budget' selection, naturally. I can remember the difference in having clear vision being life-changing. It was epic. I could read distant shit! I had probably needed vision correction for years. But I still didn't wear them as often as I should have. Stupid kids.

Then I wore contacts for several years. All through high school and past that. But I also developed allergies when I was about 19. After living my whole life relatively allergy-free, suddenly I was bothered by pollen and dust, etc. This awful irritation, mixed with my astigmatism, made contacts more and more uncomfortable.

So I've exclusively worn glasses for the past year and a half, maybe. I still have some contacts but I completely prefer glasses now.

I've got these frames

I wear contacts all the time. I can barely see shit normally, so I have to wear them.

It used to take me like an hour to put my contacts in, so I never wore them. Then one day in like 9th grade I just started wearing them, and I've worn them ever since.

I haven't changed my glasses frame in like 5 years now.

I got glasses in middle school, and moved up to contacts sometime in high school. But sometime a few years ago, I started wearing my glasses again pretty much full time - don't even know why, but I still do wear contacts when I feel like it.

These are my main pair

I wear glasses by choice. I can wear contacts, but I'm too afraid of what might happen before. When I wore contacts, I scratched my cornea. I just don't want to go blind. Like Longo, I can't see anything without my glasses on.

Lasered my eyes *pew pew* and it was the best money I've ever spent. Scary as fuck cause they shoot fucking lasers into your opened eyeball but now can see great without contacts or glasses.

Well i have terrible eyesight so I need either glasses or contacts, I just wear which ever one I feel like so its a pretty good split even between the two.

I don't have contacts, because I'm too cheap to buy contacts or get laser surgery (the former because I don't have insurance, the latter because I just don't want to). Glasses all day, erryday for me

I have the slightest of prescriptions and only wear glasses to avoid headaches. Right now I'm just using contacts because someone stole my old frames.



I actually prefer glasses in most situations.

Never felt the need for glasses. My eyesight isn't the best possible, but it gets me trough the day without problems.

I do wear glasses for reading small print, other than that I could live fine without them.

I like how MattAY and cyberjim posted the exact same video I was going to post.

So I'll just post this.

I had to get glasses in high school. I blame my failing of Chemistry on not being able to see the white board and me being to stubborn to address it. The school councilor had to bring it up to my mom.

I'd never use them at school unless I absolutely couldn't see though. About a decade ago, I found some frames I liked and could afford, so I wear them all the time now.

That sounds like the beginning of a horrible, disturbing, yet hilarious story.

4th grade I ended up getting glasses. Given that my father supported us with a minimum wage job and no benefits, I got myself a sweet set of discount granny glasses

As you can imagine they made me superbly popular and attractive to the ladies, so much so that I avoided wearing them until my eyes got so bad I needed them on constantly. For example, I can just barely make out this text on my laptop without them.

I did upgrade my frames though, half framed, not too hipsterish, not elitist, and I wear em 24/7, it's a part of my face now, it'd be like going without my nose

I tried contacts, but could never get over the discomfort of shoving something under my eyelid
