If your vision is so bad that you are going to be wearing them 24/7 just get contacts. If that's not the case and you can manage most of you life without glasses get a really stylish pair. Most people are going to be surprised but will not find it repulsive and think of you as a loser. You don't want to be wearing them 100% of the time.
Another reason to get contacts would be if your lenses are (going to be) really thick.
