Which do you prefer?  I have worn contact lenses since I was 16 .... and that has been a long time :)

I prefer glasses. I have tried to put contacts on before and it didn't work out for me, because I am a blinker. I can't hold my eyes open long enough to put the contact in my eye, because I am constantly blinking.

I wear both-glasses and contact lenses.  Although I do wear my glasses more often now than contact lenses.

I wear glasses. I used to wear contacts but my eyes started itching and burning and I got some nasty stuff in my eyes.

I wear contacts most of the time. Glasses sometimes on the weekends if my eyes feel "tired"

I've been wearing contacts for more than 4 years already, and i recently got the new daily contacts and they were so thin that when i was taking them off, i thought i had moved my contact to the white area when i pulled it, and it was the white tissue of my eyeball being pulled. It was sort of elastic and i freaked out!  but now its all good, i got used to them and i throw them out every day

I've considered trying contact lenses, but my husband has told me that when he tried them, he got an infection that could have damaged his eyesight. He decided not to push his luck and tossed out the contacts!!

I stick strictly with glasses, just about everyone I've ever met says I look better with them and I definitely agree.  while my fiance wears both.  mainly his contacts.

I think contacts lenses are better than glassess thought.

I wear both.  I wear my glasses when I'm working and contacts on my off days.  I still have to wear reading glasses when I wear my contacts though.

Glasses always look more professional to me, depending on the style. :thumbsup:

I wear both, and my preference depends on what I'm doing.  As far as comfort goes, I give the nod to glasses- my contacts always get sticky and dry after a while.

I wear neither, but if I did wear glasses or contact lenses I will have to go with glasses because it seems more stylish, and easy to wear.

I've tried both, but since I work with a lot of chemicals I need to wear glasses. Contacts are dangerous since chemicals accumulate behind them and overexpose your eyes.
