Do you wear glasses or contacts?

Not currently.  I had reading glasses in school to basically magnify the chalkboard.

How long have you had to wear them?

n/a

Have you ever had your eyes dilated?

Is that what they do with the glaucoma test?  Had that done at the beginning of February.  I didn't care for that too much!

Anyone else in your house need them?

Natalie has reading glasses.

Do you wear glasses or contacts? -- Yep, glasses. I wear them from the minute I get out of the shower until I turn out the light to go to bed. I can function ok without them, but why? I just don't get people who need to wear them all the time, but won't . You can get really cute glasses now, and they are way lighter and more comfortable than they used to be.

How long have you had to wear them?  Since fifth grade. I got contacts in 8th grade, and wore those all through high school and for awhile after, but went back to glasses full time at some point in college. My dad was an optician, and remember him working with me to get those contacts in. I have an extraordinarily strong blink reflex - my optomotrist comments every time I go in- and it was pretty frustrating. Dad was very patient, though!

Have you ever had your eyes dilated?  Every year. Since I am diabetic, they really want to check carefully for nerve damage. They used to have dialation reversal drops, but apparently they are really expensive now, or they quit making them, so my optomotrist doesn't have them anymore. Really annoying.

Anyone else in your house need them? Erick wears them, and actually I am surprised neither of the kids need them yet. If you have 2 parents who are near-sighted, you are genetically doomed!

Do you wear glasses or contacts?  Glasses- I wore contacts until the year I got pregnant with Waylon, 2006, and I had a very nasty eye infection and almost lost sight in that eye. Every since, I can't wear contacts more then an hour or so at a time, so why bother.

How long have you had to wear them?  Since Jr. High 7th or 8th grade

Have you ever had your eyes dilated? Yes, when I had the infection in my left eye.

Anyone else in your house need them? Mom wears them. Dad wears the $1.00 reading glasses from the dollar store LOL, P wears them. The boys so far have lucked out and don't need them.

How long have you had to wear them?  about a year, I can't read small print anymore. This has become so annoying because I can't read my phone either without glasses so I have to make sure I have them with me at all times.

Have you ever had your eyes dilated?  yes, last week

Anyone else in your house need them? Ray has had glasses and contacts since high school and Baylie had to get glasses in 2nd grade to read the board. She started wearing contacts in 6th grade.
