Get regular glasses first (flex lightweight is the ONLY way to go...make sure the shape fits your face too...I only wear rectangular glasses) and then once you're used to it look into contacts.

Distance. I mostly need them for seeing signs while driving, especially at night.

And contacts scare me, man.

I keep hearing contradicting statements about contacts:
"Oh they're so hard to put in and they feel funny"
"You have to be really comfortable touching your eyes"
"They're a big pain sometimes and feel weird"
"You have to soak them in sanitizer every night"

Then

"It's nice not having glasses"
"I can swim with them on"
"They can be tweaked even more than glasses to suit your vision"

Etc...

So I really don't know. They're cheap though, so I guess there isn't much to lose. Also if you're getting glasses, consider buying them online versus the glasses store. You can literally save several hundred dollars, all you need is a copy of your prescription and your pupillary distance (taken at the eye doctor's), plus a few measurements you can use a tape measure for.

Yeah, there's a lot of pros and cons, I don't think I'd ever feel comfortable sticking them in my eyes, though.

Yeah, I found some cheap frames at WalMart for 18 bucks. Starting off with those for now.

And there it is: the 128GB iDevice. About time. Glad it's still a 4th gen. iPad with no other changes.
