Hubby needs them badlly ... he puts his glasses on to stumble to the bathroom to put in his contact lenses. He also gets free eye sight tests and £10 towards the cost of his glasses (those ones made out of special glass so they can be thinner and reduce the weight). He is over +10 in both eyes - I can't imagine what its like.
When the kids were small and there were occasional commic moments when in the rush he would drop his glasses and not know where they were whilst I had to deal with the child being sick etc, then come back and hunt down his glasses so he could help with the bed changing etc.
I am completely gleeky - 6.5 left, 4.0 right (I think?). Have been myopic since childhood and my prescription keeps increasing.
About to buy prescription cycling glasses from Optilabs in the hope that proper cycling classes will allow me to cycle at more than 25mph without eyes tearing up! Currently, all significant decents are with brakes on, as the faster I go, the less I can see!
