If you're as old as me, you remember the old phrase "Boys don't make passes at girls that wear glasses." This statement has never really bothered me because I've always thought it was more important to see than to get hit on. I've been wearing glasses (at least to read) since I was 12 years old. My prescription changes constantly too. Right now my near vision is pretty good, but distance is bad. So, I usually have to get glasses every year. Due to a number of different issues with my eyes, I can't wear contacts. We've tried a couple of times with no success. Hopefully in the future they will come up with a lens that will work, but until then... I'm a girl that wears glasses. Fortunately for me... the one that matters still makes passes.
