Musclequest saidGet the laser surgery! Why bother with glasses? You have a cute face.
I've worn glasses for over 50 years. And some of them looked identical to the thick frames in the second post here.
But by the early 1970s I was wearing thin metal frames, which I continue to do, because thick frames are obtrusive in my line of sight, sorta like wearing a Halloween mask, and also physically heavy on my face. Try both thick and thin in an optical store and judge for yourself. I usually get Flexon frames by Marchon, of a special metal alloy you can twist an incredible amount without them bending permanently, very rugged frames that appear fragile instead.
If these are your first glasses then I presume your prescription isn't too strong. In that case you can choose most any shape that flatters your face, and also "frameless" where the bottom portion of the lenses are not supported by a frame. Very elegant, but not practical for an active young man, more for professional business & evening wear.
If your prescription is stronger, say above -3.00 diopters, then you need to avoid large, very square lenses, and choose frame sizes that place your eye directly in the center of the lens. Otherwise the far edges of the lens become very thick, giving you a distorted view, and making you look a bit nerdy. My strong prescription does that, so I have to use a number of tricks to keep the lenses thin.
You may be too young for laser eye surgery, your vision not yet stabilized. If interested, see if you can get a free consultation.
I've also been wearing contact lenses since 1965. Nowadays I just use them socially only, from the time I first needed bifocals, since contact lens approaches to bifocals aren't very satisfactory in my opinion. I have daily disposables, that I just throw away at the end of the day, as the name implies.
No cleaning, no overnight soaking, just pop them in and wear them once. But you'll still want a pair of eyeglasses for backup, since most people can't wear contacts during an 18-hour day nonstop, nor in all conditions (dusty for instance).
I'm glad you're taking a positive attitude. When I first had to wear eyeglasses they were considered a tragic fate; now they're a fashion statement. A big improvement in public perception from which you can now benefit. Best to you.
