    I broke my glasses tonight and was wondering should I replace them with contacts or back to glasses.

    Dark tinted glasses, so they hide part of your face.:haha:Seriously, would contacts interfere with you work? Juice splash? Fumes?

    I had to tape my sunglasses sunday. Then I just said fork it and bought new ones monday. I was the nerd on the Kawasaki. :haha: :haha:

    I voted contacts. I love them. If I didn't have a cute little ball of expenses coming up, I'd probably be thinking about laser surgery again...

    ive tried the whole contacts thing... when id get crap in my eye from working on something it would be a nitemare. Putting them in every morning took too much time for me and taking them out was a pain sometimes too. I never really did like them that much. I still have a few sets but i prefer my glasses more

    I'd get both. Contacts to wear at home or out around town with your wife, and glasses to wear to work. Like Cole said getting crap in your eye with contacts sucks.

    No, those live in my truck for now. These were my riding glasses. I alternate between good ones and cheap's on the bike. They end up taking a lot of abuse getting stuffed in and out of hte helmet.

    I have had contacts for about 8 years. I love them & will never where glasses full time again. I only where my glasses after I take my contacts out at night or if I am being lazy on the weekends.

    I'd go with glasses. I'm going to look into contacts this time around, but that's because my eyes haven't changed a lot. If the contacts aren't my thing, I have glasses I can go back to using.

    Same here. At night after my eyes are tired, I will take my cotnacts out and wear the glasses before bed. If I am up or out doing anything, I don't want those silly glasses on my face. It is 10X worse if I am sweating.....they get slippery and slide down my nose!:mad:

    :D :D
