The time for wearing glasses has come! What do I need to consider?

Over the last 2-3 years of eye checkups, the various optometrists Ive seen have suggested the time is coming but just hold off a bit longer....
Recently I was driving to a foreign place (in my city), it was raining and dark and the speed limit was high and i ended up in a huge fluster, 50 minutes late and incredibly stressed, all because i couldn't read the stupid road signs from the car. A few weeks later I tried on my brothers glasses, low and behold how much definition there is to the world around us! Surely I too am short-sighted? (as in i have issue with seeing long distance objects). One eye is worse than the other. Also I stare at computers all day for work but generally dont get headaches.
What do I need to know about glasses before i re-visit the optometrist (where my general distrust of medical professionals will undoubtedly kick in).
If the option for laser surgery is offered should i consider it? Will my eyes degrade once I wear glasses thus should I put it off longer (im 28)..? Will I become dependent on my googles and never take them off? Are contacts actually any good or just a total pain in the ass?
Argh not looking forward to this one.
