Re: Do you wear specs?

Yes. Need them for driving and looking at things a long way away.
Don't need them for reading, computing, fiddling under the bonnet.

Re: Do you wear specs?

I don't, but at my last medical a couple of months ago i saw that my eyesight had deteriorated a wee bit in the 5 years since the previos medical, so i'll probably need glasses in the future if it continues

Re: Do you wear specs?

Yeah! Got they vari-focal, sundym type by Zeiss. Often drive away in the car, and realise much later I'm not wearing them. The number plate thing is a joke, but check those 40 year olds out holding their newspapers at arms length. Nothing wrong with my eyes!

My eyes are good, for nearly seven decades of use. Apart from that entropion, which I wish on all the nasty people I don't like!! And root-canal treatment, hope it hurts them!!

Re: Do you wear specs?

So it's looking official. AlfaOwners are a bunch of speccy-four-eyes

There's a delicious irony about the beauty of the cars and the blindness of the owners

I am of course kidding btw, I know how stroppy some are on here

Re: Do you wear specs?

I'm far sighted (read "blind as a bat").
I had a terrble time at school when I first went at the age of 5 .... children can really be cruel. Coke bottle bottoms, Four Eyes, The fly... I got called all kinds of names. I may still have the emotional scars.... seriously

Re: Do you wear specs?

I wear contacts. Does that count?

I look like a dick in glasses. Just spent £165 on a new pair for those (rare) days when I don't bother with contacts and when I put them on in front of the gf, she just laughed. Says it all, really.
