A year and a half ago. I got a cheap pair just to wear at home since I wear contact lenses whenever I go out.
I considered contact lenses but I know I'd get tired of having to put them on when I get up and take them off at night.

About 9 years ago, but then I got LASIK
I don't think I'll ever get LASIK eye surgery because of the price and potential side effects. When did you get the surgery done? And did you have any complications?

I've never even had an eye test, but I definitely know I need glasses. I've tried some friends glasses and wow, what an improvement.
I've missed 2 appointments at Walmart for an eye test, but I already have the frames picked out there that I want. Just gotta get around to the test.
It's really frustrating for me especially when it comes to typing and reading on computer, since I'm actually sitting on my couch around 15 feet from my 47 inch tv.
Text is so blurry I strain to view it and it drives me nuts. Sometimes I get headaches from straining to hard to read.
The sooner you get glasses, the better. Straining your eyes like that isn't good. What's stopping you from getting your eyes checked? A standard eye exam shouldn't last longer than 15 minutes. The worst part of an eye exam, in my opinion, is the corneal reflex test. And it's not even that bad. They'll either blow air onto your eyes or touch it with something.
Your eyes will feel more relaxed when your vision is corrected. Everything will look so much more sharper and detailed. I used to not wear my glasses whenever I went out and I didn't get any headaches from reading street signs (while walking) or reading a menu at a restaurant. My new glasses made me realize how bad my vision was to begin with. The difference is so noticeable that it's unpleasant. And my prescription (to correct nearsightedness [myopia]) isn't even that strong.
