Celebs with Glasses: Love or Hate?

I've been in need of contacts for a long time.  And by a long time, I mean that I've probably been needing them for the last 5 years.  Oops.  Has anyone else out there avoided contact lenses for years?

It started in high school when I couldn't see the board very well.  Then as the classrooms got bigger in college, glasses and a seat in the front row were a must.  Today I'm cramped up behind my lap top all day so my need for contacts doesn't seem as crucial...

UNTIL I give a speech and can't see anyone in the audience...

Or, on the rare occasion that I drive and I can't read the signs...

Or, when I'm at the grocery store and everything far away seems blurry...

When these things happen, you can bet money that I don't have my glasses and I probably don't even know where my glasses are.

I'm pretty sure it's time for me to get some contact lenses, but I'm a little scared.

Once the ultimate accessory that screamed geek, glasses have come a long way from the old 1980’s thick and ugly jam jars.  In fact, I got the glasses in the picture above because at the time I was convinced they'd make me look like Jennifer Anniston.  I look at this picture now and have no idea where I came up with such a comparison...

My guess is that a majority of people who actually need help with their sight prefer wearing contact lenses over glasses.  As a test, I looked up celebs who wear glasses to see which look I liked better. Turns out that, hands down, I preferred every single celebrity WITHOUT glasses (and presumably WITH contact lenses).

Which celebrities do YOU prefer with glasses?

And what's a post about glasses vs. contacts without the infamous Sarah Palin?!

PS- Anyone know if there are negative consequences to NOT wearing contacts regularly?
