I have serious sight issues related to an eye condition that also prevents me from realistically wearing contacts. Long story short, I need glasses. I wear them 24/7. I've got a round face, and don't look good in glasses generally. I've always bought really low profile frames(pic related is what I have rn - tom ford 5092). These are obviously a bit nerdy, but are they too far into that zone? Even having a bad face for glasses should I be more bold and try something else, or should I stay with the inoffensive nerd glasses and accept my fate?

I manage contacts for like short dates, parties, and formal events, but in my day to day life people see me all the time with my glasses. I've been conscious about them for years, and I now have some extra money I could spend on a new pair or two. I just don't know what to do.

I realize this is 100% true but I'm on the night shift right now with no way to get a pic onto this computer. just randomly started stressing about this at 2 am. me figuring out and/or coming to terms with my glasses has been a long time coming.

I have facial hair and I get told I look like Jeff Bridges all the time.

If it helps any, what glasses would you advise for a 35 years younger Jeff Bridges?

Honestly, grab some larger glasses, Its just better for a roundy like yourself.
I get that lasek may be out of the question, try to find something less like your pic and more like something that makes it smaller

I've got an extremely good doctor, the best lasik surgeon in the region, and he suggests I wait until I'm around 40. My eyes are so bad that they would degenerate too much even after lasik, and if I do it too early in life I will need to have lasik re-done too many times. There's like a hard limit on how many times they can do that kind of stuff to you before it causes more problems than it fixes. I've got to accept glasses for the next 10 years.

Retnoid pigmintosis, choroiderimia?

>>10626437
I was diagnosed with stargardt's when I was young, but because my eyes have stabilized they now actually aren't completely sure what is wrong with me. Me not being blind is a rare and confusing anomaly. I instead just have very bad eye sight that doctors are afraid to deal with.

>>10626462
I know that feel man, choroiderimias left me night blind, eventually becoming blind around fortyish.
Isnt knowledge great?
I wasnt always the big guy, I was enlisted for the navy til they found out.
No degeneration allowed

desu you can get free try on from warby parker and post the pics and people will tell you which to go with, alternatively you can get cheap pair from zennioptical and see how you feel about them
I think those frames look pretty bad IMO, I'm a big fan of horn rimmed glasses but I Know people think they are played out or something

Rimless titanium

If your head it large enough, go for more square rather than long and super thin (it looks more masculine).
