Does anyone actually prefer glasses over contacts?

I wear contact lenses most of the time. However, it is a really good idea to give your eyes a break from wearing only contacts. I wear glasses when I just stay at home for the day or half day or whatever.

I wear my contacts most of the time. I wear my glasses when I am feeling lazy or just hanging around the house reading or if my eyes are bugging me for some reason. I don't like wearing them more because I can tell the difference between the prescription on my glasses and contacts. It's not that I REALLY need to wear them, I can get along decently without them, but I got my glasses a few years ago and now my prescription is slightly stronger so it is slightly annoying to go back and forth.

at first i was only prescribed contacts. i hated them for about 1.5 years. then i switched over to glasses and loved them. I wear contacts when im playing sports of course, but otherwise glasses are the way to go.

I wear glasses when i need to, and i think i look fine in them, but they hurt my eyes after a while. And i really only need it to read stuff faraway, like when i need to see the board in class or when im driving.

i'm pretty much the same, i'm supposed to wear them while driving, but they hurt my eyes, and they don't overly help my eyesight, so i usually don't wear them

I wear contacts, I have glasses just in case but the prescription on those is so far behind that I never wear them.

After wearing glasses for years, I decided to try out contacts when I played a season of soccer. They worked well for sporting events, but they really don't do much for me beyond such active events.

I now keep some contacts around in case my glasses should break, but I love my glasses. I think I look strange without them.
