I got some when I was 12, but only wore them for a few weeks, as they were unruly and felt weird. I was also advised by my father, and some of my uncles that if I wore them to much, it'd deteriorate my eye-sight without glasses, so that in 30 years, I'd be blind without them. Digging through some stuff, I put them on for old times sake, abit tight, but wow, it was...enlightening to say the least. Everything was sharper, clearer. Like a layer of fog had been lifted. Imagine it like no AA VS 4x Super-Sampling AA.(lol) With the advent of laser eye surgery being more practical these days, but still freaks the living hell out of me after my TEACHER told me about someone who ripped their eye lids off by scratching under the black eye cover in their sleep. I was wondering about this age old myth, Google was...less than informative. Alot of jibber jabber, but no clear line. What are peoples opinions over this? I read that your eyes become dependent on the glasses, so your eye muscles weaken and you can't see without them years down the road. I remember my vision was 20 / 40 when I got tested...so not sure what it'd be now. Kinda was a random thing to put them on, but walked around my house a little and was like "whoa" lol. It's nice to see clearly, but I don't really like wearing them, I don't want my eyesight to weaken without them. Laser Eye Surgery is not only expensive, but as said before, scary as ****. Thoughts, opinions, facts? Thanks.
