Hello! This is my first post on this site and I don't know if I am posting at the right category so don't insult me ok?
I am wearing glasses since I was a little child because I have myopia.I haven't seen any metal musician playing live on stage with glasses on,and that wouldn't be a problem for me because I don't see a big difference with or without my glasses since my eyesight isn't that bad and I could get rid of them anytime,but the problem is that my eyes start to hurt after 10 minutes without glasses and then my eyes start crying and I get headaches.
So,it is ok if I bring my glasses when playing on stage?And it is something unmetal about it?Will people laugh at me because of that?

Sorry for bad english. :nazi:

There isn't a rule saying you can't. But if are worried about looking cool, get contact lenses.

Ihsahn seems to always wear glasses on stage, at least with his solo stuff. Sound > appearance.

I always wear mine on stage though I've thought about trying it a time or two without them. Ultimately, I'd rather not let things like that hinder my performance and I don't think anyone is really thinking less of you for wearing them anyway.

From personal experience of having to wear sunglasses on stage due to occasional light sensitivity issues, the big reason people don't wear glasses too often is the risk of flinging them off your head while headbanging. I've lost a pair of sunglasses to it...thankfully it was a cheap $10 pair in my case.

If you have a way of keeping them firmly attached, by all means, go for it.

Fuck it. Ludde, the vocalist in Blood Mortized wears glasses on stage and he tears it up.
