    Default Question for anyone with glasses....

    I had to get glasses and i've had them for about a week, but i haven't been wearing them as much as i should. The optometrist guy said it would take me a while to get used to them, and i probably should have got them 10 yrs. ago i know ,but i kept putting it off...
    Anyways , it's great to be able to see things properly, and read signs,and look at my lawn and actually see blades of grass instead of a green blur. Also he said it might seem like your balance is off....

    And he wasn't lying, How long before i get used to this feeling like the floors and walls are slanted, like your balance is fucked up...I see great detail , but when i walk it's like the fucking ground is tilted and shit...

    Some people tell me to keep wearing them instead of taking them off, but i think i might fire these friggin' things in the garbage...

    I've been wearing glasses since I was 9yrs old, and even I still take them off from now and then just to let my eyes rest. It'll take about a week or two for you to get adjusted man. I remember having slight headaches when I first started wearin em, but ya get used to them.

    Did you get any extra shit on your lenses? UV Protection, transition lenses, scratch guard? I got all that stuff. Cost me a bit, but I couldn't live with my transitions.

    Best thing to do is leave them on. It takes a while to get use to them. You will tho. I waited way too long to get mine. It sure is nice to see things clearly.

    It's been a while, but I think they cost me around 80-100 bucks. My insurance covered most of the cost for all the stuff I got, so in the end I paid like $260 or so.

    I tried contacts twice, just couldn't get used to them. They burned my eyes like crazy.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    I also hear transition lenses won't darken in an auto due to the auto glass..Is that true?

    The lady at the eye place somewhat talked me out of transitions saying they are not recommended as a replacement for sunglasses, so I got a pair prescription sunglasses. It's a hassle though, having to drag around 2 pair. I had to do something as I was sick of those el cheapo clip-on thingys...

    Haven't heard that Brian, but now that I think about it, I don't remember them darkening while I was driving. But I'm so used to my lenses at this point that I probably don't even notice.

    Yeah, that's news to me too, but it would explain why my glasses seem to be useless as far as shielding me from brightness in the car.
