Awesome - well done, Dice.  I hadn't noticed before, but your avatar actually kind of looks like you...  Must be the glasses.

(I wonder - how many of us here wear glasses?  I bet it's a lot - we stare at screens for long periods of time.)

As they say "If you want a girl who plays video games, be prepared to like dark hair and glasses" raff out roud!

Yeah; I picked it partially because Jihl (they say, again) looks like me...and because her fifteen minutes in-game are awesome.  ...or is that bias?  Either way.

I obviously wear glasses.  I've been wearing them since I was 9 years old.  I'm nearsighted.  And since I get allergic reactions to metal, I always have to wear plastic frames.  But because I love punk and metal, I wear cargo pants and put my glasses in a hardcase so they don't get smashed up in the moshpit.  People always tell me I look like a different person when I have my glasses off.  I tried wearing contacts for a while, but I didn't like them very much.  Only glasses for me, thank you.

I SHOULD be wearing my glasses. But I don't. I know, i'm naughty. I'm nearsighted, from years of computer screens and small print books.

I hated contacts.  If it's SUCH a pain int the ass to wear glasses - save up for laser eye surgery, contacts are poopy.  I hated nothing more than feeling "tired" all the time because my eyes were all dried up.  It takes time to get used to putting em in and taking em out, and they cost a few too many pesos to continuously buy.  I'm *kinda* happy glasses look okay on me, I guess - worst case though, I'll get surgery.

I also have a slight pet-peeve with coloured contact.  Serious.  Purple?  Who are ya trying to kid?  And Asians, we know your eyes aren't blue.  I never liked how fake-obvious coloured contacts were - they (not to point the obvious here) really look like an added layer of eye.
I'm as "interesting" as it gets when it comes to appearance: brown hair, brown eyes.  I'd love green, but the dark, mysterious colour works too!

Worst case scenario - if you hate your eye colour, make a euphemism for it!
....I call mine HONEY brown haha
Or like...STEEL blue.... or PINE green. x)

Awesome - I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who feels that way about contacts.

Dincrest - I'm lucky.  No allergies to anything - just got those freakin' thick lenses.  When I was a kid, it was all plastic frames because wire frames couldn't handle the lenses.  Yay for crazy polycarbonate plastic super-whatever lenses!

Dice - yeah, the thing that always stops me from getting the surgery is that I know my eyes will just get worse again, and I'll have to get glasses again.  Also, my wife likes how I look with glasses, and obviously, that's the dealmaker right there. :)

Tooker why would they get worse again? I thought the surgery makes your eyesight better forever. In fact it becomes better than an average human's eyesight

If we're talking about Lasik surgery, then it depends on where your eyes were in the first place. But the surgery does "wear off" after a while, your eyes will go back to being crappy.

Also keep in mind the Lasik stuff is relatively new- people still don't know if there's any ramifications to be had when you get into old age. Some people think it might increase the chances of cataracts and whatnot. I really wouldn't recommend anybody get the surgery for any aesthetic reasons, it's as shallow as getting plastic surgery.

The only cases I would recommend it is if you have keratoconus/astigmatism, where eyeglasses wouldn't help much/at all. Otherwise, if your glasses work fine, just stick to them.

I thought that it only goes back to being crappy if your eye condition has a deteriorating rate before the surgery?

Yeah, that's what I meant.  Let's say I need new glasses every year, because my prescription gets worse every year.  If I get surgery to correct my eyes now, I'm just going to need THINNER glasses than I used to have within a few years.

Thankfully, my eyes have slowed down.  I really did need new glasses every year before, but now I can go up to five years between new ones.  I've worn glasses since I was 7.  Tried contacts twice, didn't really like them either time.

Yeah- I think opticians/clinics (some if not most?) try to ensure your prescription is constant for about six months to a year before they perform laser eye surgery. It doesn't mean one won't need spectacles in a few years but if the rate is very slow, at least it won't be a terribly high prescription.

On topic! Latest addition to my hat collection...
