So I went to an opthamologist for the first time in 10 years to get my eyes checked because I need good vision for my job, and I am getting older than dirt. Turns out I need glasses to help ease the eye fatigue.

I've never ever worn glasses before (except for sunglasses, but obviously that doesn't count). Tell me some shit I need to know about wearing glasses -- tips and tricks?

1. Get contacts if your near sighted

2. Go cheap or go durable either are acceptable

3. Do not get transition lens

4. They're rattle of a list of other options, some are handy, some are not. I don't remember which are which.

I am far sighted and not really interested in the hassle of contacts... yet. I already bought the frames -- I decided to get designer frames because I look bad ass in them, my vision plan is awesome so I got them for a huge discount, and I probably won't get another pair for at least 5 years so I want something that will last. No transition lenses -- I don't need them for driving so my Oakleys will work just fine for outside. The only special thing I got was anti-reflective coating so I don't get glare from the computers at work. Did I do good?

Welcome to the club, bb coal

You were wise not to get contacts, they're obnoxious. I do recommend getting a pair of backup glasses if you can because you never know...you can use a pair at work and a pair at home or something if you want, or just keep the spares as spares. & always use a case. Don't be one of those fuckers that just dumps their glasses in their bag and lets them get scratched. That's not cool, and the scratches will get annoying.

They're kinda irrelevant to her since she is just far-sighted, but they're not obnoxious in general. They're essential for a lot of athletic activities and such if you are near-sighted. I wear glasses 95% of the time, but couldn't imagine not having contacts for the remainder of the activities.

I just went through this. Apparently I've been living with an astigmatism for a long time now and didn't realize it.

Anyway, you can get a lot of crazy options. I have anti glare and anti scratch. The anti scratch has saved my ass on numerous occasions when falling debris has hit me in the face.

The most annoying thing about glasses is cleaning them. I don't know how they get fingerprints on them when I haven't even touched them...

I've never had a problem wearing glasses for riding or for curling, but I guess if you do a different type of activity contacts could be good.

I have an older, crappier spare pair to wear at home and while riding my bike, but I find normal glasses are far from ideal for the latter. Contacts + cycling sunglasses would be much better (prescription cycling sunglasses would be ideal, but also too expensive).

Dude, I would rock the shit out of prescription goggles. I'm in the mindset that if I am going to be wearing glasses, I am totally going to wear those glasses IN YOUR FACE like the ultimate fashion statement.

I've always used them for skiing, lacrosse, and biking (and baseball back in high school and college). Prescription goggles and glasses for these activities are prohibitively expensive, but regular glasses suck. I skied once with glasses under ski goggles and it was awful.
