The cataracts snuck up on me.
I started wearing glasses in about four years ago when I was sitting on the couch realising that the episode descriptions for whatever show I was watching on Netflix on tele were really, really blurry.
I actually need another check since I know my eyes have gotten a little bit worse since. But I don't mind wearing glasses. I don't need them for reading, just for any details further than about six feet away. I blame 20 years or so of computer work.
Since I only play at home I just chose to get a bigger screen . Does that count?
look into contacts Blair, prescription shades to look cool, fake it
A Monocle! Almost as steampunk as goggles! A monocle is the choice of old timey bankers and evil masterminds!
I don't sound any better with or without my glasses.
I had a friend in the ‘60’s who played mandolin in a jug band, and wore a monocle. That was especially cool. The monocle would frequently fall out and land on his mandolin. Eventually the mandolin had a significant scar. After John died (way too young) his mandolin was displayed at a local music store without any explanation. But everyone in the local music scene who went into the store knew whose it was.
About 15 years ago the mandolin disappeared. Some said it was stolen, some said it was in the hands of one of the surviving members of the original band, some said it had been shattered in some unknown accident. But no one could -or can- say for sure where it is today.
I need glasses for my ears
When practicing or learning something new, Always on. Playing live I take em off. For now lol.
I'm near-sighted, so no - don't need anything for guitar. But if I wanna see what the guy across the stage is doing - yep, need some help.
Thing is, I discovered contacts about 30 years ago. Greatest invention since sliced bread! I rarely need to wear glasses anymore.
Glasses for reading here ....
A guy I used to work with and I frequently had to review printed orders, I would take my glasses off and he would put his glasses on to read...
I always find that peculiar myself I know a few people who are 'all the time' wearers of glasses who have to take them off for close work and reading where I have to put my glasses on.
No idea exactly what causes my eyes to be the way they are but the optician told me last time I was there that there was no surgery or contact lenses that could give me back my original level of vision.
I am near sighted but wear glasses 24/7, except when bathing and sleeping. And I often fall asleep with them on.
For the moment, I’m nearsighted in my left eye and farsighted in my right. Yesterday, my left eye was 20/200, ten minutes ago it was 20/80 but seems to have improved over the last few minutes. They took off my eyepatch from cataract surgery ten minutes ago and my vision is improving by the minute. I’m still relying on my right eye (with reading glasses) but I’m worlds better already.
Thanks for the lead! I’ll check it out!
I've been wearing glasses since i was 4 or 5 years old,yes,i now have to wear reading glasses,but i don't need them when playing the aul geets.
If i have to read tab ,different story.
Computers have made my eye sight a lot worse though.
I probably should, but I don't wear my glasses nearly as often as I need to. I'm extremely light-sensitive (look up "vampire vision" if you're curious and bored) so most of the time I need sunglasses, even indoors and in the nighttime in certain situations, and I don't own any prescription sunglasses (too pricey at the moment).
Because of my weird vision (seeing excellent in the dark, but being almost completely blind on sunny days) I actually started collecting sunglasses. Right now I have like 100+ pairs.
100+ pairs of sunglasses,
9 mannequin heads and 3 full size mannequins, all displaying pieces from my collection of 100-200 masks...
I'm starting to have a sneaking suspicion that guitarists just might be unreasonable when it comes to collecting...
Progressive lenses here. I can't do a think without them.
Graying hair and bifocals, matches my date of birth and to answer the question, the glasses stay on 'till bed time.
