    I have a tendency to think that maybe Ns get away without glasses for longer than Ss - my eyes are a little dodgy long distance (about the point where I probably shouldn't be driving without glasses), but I swear I don't even notice it 90% of the time.

    I can imagine it bugging an S-type a great deal more.

    Hmm...I never wear my glasses except for the computer, I can't stand the feel/look of them. It bothers me a little to not be able to see things, but not enough to wear them. So I dunno.

    what if you should wear glasses or contacts, but don't because you'd rather strain your eyes and feel weird with glasses on and touching your eye. I'm near sighted. I figure if I need to see something I'll just get closer to it. Now if I was far sighted I'd probably bump into things....wait...I do that anyways.

    I'm in that wear-glasses camp. Cause, you know, I would run into things without them.

    Have you ever thought of narrowing it down to what sort of eye problems? For some reason I can imagine nearsightedness more S, farsightedness and astigmatism more N.

    One optimitrist I had said people who read a lot were more likely to need glasses.

    Which types read the most?

    I am thinking NT. Ns like stories of fantasy, science fiction, etc. - stories that stimulate the imagination. Ts like to read for the love of learning. I don't really have much to back this theory up, just based on myself and some people I know.

    I don't wear glasses, but I've never been in a situation where I was told I needed them. I also don't like to read much (unless it's about me) -- I get a headache if I stare at words for too long. I prefer to write instead.

    I hate wearing sunglasses, though, because they always feel like they're going to slip off my nose. I can only imagine that optical glasses do the exact same thing.

    I'd like to wear a monocle -- I'd look like Colonel Klink!

    I'm nearsighted, so is my brother. I'm pretty sure it's from reading too much, getting way too close to the paper when writing or drawing, and otherwise physically zooming in close to inspect things.
