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.Seriously, would contacts interfere with you work? Juice splash? Fumes?
I think you meant welding shield....
like i asked Heather, can we have pics??
Hey Buddy you just let me know who b!tch slapped your ass and broke your glasses and I will come to NC and kick their ass for you
no one slapped me and if they did, I think I can handle it.
I was adjusting them and the bridge of them broke. don't want to put tape on them and look like a nerd.............don't even start!
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.
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...
uhm.......not the ones you got for Christmas, I hope?
do you know how close I have to get to the monitor to read it?
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.
yeah i wear the contacts if im not doing anything. But i seem to always be tinkering around in an area thats dirty or on a project thats dirty and it seems everything always ends up in my eyes
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.
ok, if you ever do then I know where you can get another pair
Fumes and I spent 30 mins trying to fix his $5 sunglasses the other day. Also drank a six pack in that time,but anywho I guess the super glue,and propane torch still won..
I had thought of soldering mine back together.....IIRC, they were stainless.
Duct tape.....And UYB aint lyin....I had a real hard time throwing those things away....
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!
For us blind folk... My next pair of glasses will be Lasik.
