    I think I was 8. You need an option under 11!

    @TheMrsTulip:  Can you add a 10 and under option?

    I was 9 when I first got glasses. I thought it was cool because I wanted glasses like Karen from Babysitter’s Club Little Sisters lol

    I was 11 so I could answer your poll, but you really need an under 10 option.

    I was 20.

    I used to have amazing vision, then one day it just went to crap. Its funny because at the time I was in college and I used to always sit in the back of the 500+ seat auditoriums. One semester I was like, “why is the professor not focusing the projector?!” everyday. I wondered that all semester about TWO classes before I realized it was me, LOL. I just thought both professors were clueless and didn’t realize it was blurry 😛

    I started wearing glasses when I was five years old.

    I was in the 4th grade and it took my parents an entire year to realize that my vision was so bad; I couldn’t even read the chalkboard–I’m extremely near-sighted. I just got by from asking the people around me what was on the board. I still to this day can’t figure out why I didn’t just pipe up and say ‘hey um.. my eyeballs aren’t working. can we fix that?’

    @TheMrsTulip:  I started wearing glasses when I was 8.5. I was having trouble seeing the classroom board

    I think I was 13, but I really needed them a lot sooner. It was only once I had them that I realised just how poor my vision actually was.

    I think my Dad was about 8 when he got his.

    5th grade. There were actually so many of us that failed the eye exam in my school, the teachers thought we were pranking them, and we all had to take it again.
