    Re: Contacts or glasses?

    I tried contacts, but my eyes are very deep-set, and getting them in was hard. My eyes are also very itchy in general, so I ended up popping them out. At that point, they'd be too raw from the 45 minutes it took to get them in in the first place. Glasses it is.

    I understand that. After I scratched my cornea I was like no more. Scratching your cornea really hurts too. They gave me a really powerful shot to get rid of the pain. So I definitely stick with glasses.

    I prefer contacts. I wear glasses due to cost.

    Truthfully I'd say it depends upon your job and your vanity level.

    Fire and rescue contact's don't do to well under the heat, face or oxygen masks I don't think. High dirt or grit environment's again contacts not something i'd want to have in my eyes when foreign objects can play havoc with your eyes and cause you to constantly be wiping them. Glasses where bad enough when working outside and lots of sweat running down into your eyes and burning them and constantly trying to wipe it away. Same with glare or bright sun light even when you have shades on and it comes in from the sides and you get those bright spikes that seem to blind you.

    Vanity wise, that one I really can't speak on. Myself I wear glasses after working under UV lights for so many years. That's both short wave and long wave UV lights so can't tell you exactly which ones it was that did the damage though seem to recall its the long wave. Being in the Navy and wearing various breathing and face masks and fire and rescue with similar breathing and face mask issues glasses were the better option, especially what we called sub glasses with the flexible frames.

    Not sure what Welders glasses look like. Sub glasses are real thin wire frames with round lenses and thin hoops basically hooking over the ears. Mostly had clear glass lenses though saw some with a hard plastic but always really thin lenses so we could wear what ever "Mask" we had to for sucking air as it were. Definitely not the typical birth control glasses that were issued as military issue in the black or dark brown frames. he he he Had to be on the boats to be issued the thin framed metal ones.

    For me, getting contacts had nothing to do with vanity. My glasses sometimes give me a headache and get in the way of things, so I would have liked the option to go without them.
