Hi for-sure. First things first. We have to establish that you are being called "nerd" and "geek" because of the glasses. It may, in fact, be to other things you're wearing, e.g., your pocket protector, T83 scientific calculator,
"I'm too sexy for this shirt," shirt. Once we've established that it's not your garb, it could be physical characteristics, e.g., your hair, voice, braces. If it's not that, it could be your friends. You could be GBA*. Now if you're a real geek, you would've assumed that stands for Game Boy Advance, but in this case it stands for "Geek By Association." Who are your friends? Are you or they in the math or chess club? Do you participate in Academic Decathlon? So once you've factored out all the variables, and are for sure it's your glasses. I would recommend them. I prefer the daily disposable kind. You just put on a fresh pair each day, toss them at night. No cleaning - Ever! Love it. They are a little more expensive, don't know what your budget is. But I spend about $450 US Dollars a year on them.
*GBA changed from NBA (Nerd by Association) after NBA was banned after a copyright lawsuit from the National Basketball Association.
