Glasses because they don't hurt you nearly as much as braces. I had glasses since 4 th grade, but braces after 40 for TMJ was a killer! Besides you can get contacts at some point and nobody is the wiser!

Braces, because they don't last forever and they make you look better, unlike glasses that are permanent and just make you see better.
