As a lifetime glasses wear-er, I love seeing new looks. I had a hard time adjusting to the smaller lenses that started being in style a decade or so ago, but finally gave in a few years back, and I love the fact that they don't steam up as badly as the larger lenses used to. They are also easier to keep in place (with astigmatism, especially as extreme as mine, the placement of the lens over your eye makes a large difference in your vision), don't slide down the nose as badly as the larger lenses. For awhile I had a wardrobe of glasses (remember, I've been wearing glasses every waking moment since I was about 4 years old and walked into a door frame, and actually a few sleeping moments as well!), but as others have mentioned, glasses now cost more than contacts.
