At least you can use my glasses as that if they aremade with "normal" glass.
A good choice of frames and some additional money for betterglass can work wonders, though.

I wouldn't go contacs because I just can't stand anything near my eyes, and watching other people fumbling them in, fumbling them out, or searching them is already painful to watch (heck, I have problems finding my glasses without my glasses, how am I supposed to find contact lenses?)

Laser surgery - I was thinking about that, but the last time I checked for new glasses, the guy in fromt of me told his horror story (He started of worse than me, but 3 surgeries by then, another one "strongly recommended", and "you will need (weak) glasses for the rest of your life anyway"). No thanks.

Further, I think I look (more) awkward without glasses, and I have a tendency to bloodshot eyes which I continually convince myself is partially covered by the glasses.



We say "get a life" to each other, disappointed or jokingly. What we forget, though, is that this is possibly the most destructive advice you can give to a geek.
