well, i know i'm going to make some people mad with my answer, for the record though, i wear glasses too, but i don't wear them often.
most of you know my mind is "out there" so here goes one of those "out there" times
but i'm dead serious. i think the eye glasses industry is a scam...lmao...yes a scam! i think the majority of people wearing glasses don't need them, and should not wear them. 1. because i think they make your eyes worse if you wear them for a long time. 2. i think they look ugly nearly 100% of the time. since men go off of women's looks and black women are the least likely to get married, glasses just adds to the complication, and i think they should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.
i do think SOME people need glasses, but i think most people don't, or only need them sometimes. when i was young they eye glass people went around to all of the schools and tested students, then they would inform the parents which kids needed glasses...i was one of those students. so at 12 years old i got glasses!
hell, i was seeing fine before that. i never had any problems with not being able to see anything. yes, maybe i saw a little worse than some other people, but does that really mean i need glasses? is everyone's vision suppose to be exactly the same? i think it's b.s. and is just a way to make money. get em' while they are young, their eyes will get worse year after you and you will keep them as customers for life...that is what i think it's all about. i wore them for a couple of years, but as i became a teenager and more conscious of my looks, i stopped wearing them, and to this day i only wear them for driving.
so my answer is i think for CERTAIN things people can wear glasses to help them out, but i think in MOST cases (not all) they should NOT be worn for everyday 24/7 use. for the reasons i stated above.
