Well it was the same for me.I was in 1st standard when I got glasses. I was really annoyed that I have to wear them but the doctor told me that its nothing bad to wear glasses as it is also said that glasses are a sign of intelligence so it really encouraged me to wear them. But still I had a problem that would I look good in the glasses. The doctor told that there is a wide range of glasses with various styles so you can choose according to your wish. Well you can use this trick to make your friend understand ..
