Five Things People Who Wear Glasses Experience

people who wear glasses experience

You can’t buy sunglasses – How I would love to just go into any fashion shop, try on some sunglasses and happily purchase them, or even wear them on top of my head but I can’t because one. I can’t wear sunglasses over my glasses or without because then I can’t see. two. I would just look weird wearing glasses and having a pair on top of my head too.

You can’t lie in bed wearing them – I love to sleep on my side but this isn’t a problem as I don’t sleep with my glasses on but If I’m reading a book, watching tv or playing on my phone. I am then putting my glasses at risk in bending the frames and making the side of my face very uncomfortable.

Everyone wants to try them on – Have you ever been asked ‘Can I try your glasses on?’ I’m sure you have? I don’t mind people trying them on but when they make the comments like ‘omg how can you see through these’ and ‘how many fingers am I holding up’ It just gets annoying. I’m a lot more protective over my glasses since starting to pay for my designer glasses myself.

Constantly cleaning your lenses – I’m sure this isn’t just me but I feel like my glasses are just constantly being cleaned. I do love it though when you have just cleaned them and you’re like a whole new worlddd everything is so clear and for girls don’t you just hate it when mascara from your lashes make an appearance.

Temperature changes affecting your vision – This is the perfect season for this example, your glasses steaming up from being in the cold rain to entering a warm heated building and then when this happens you feel like you need to make the statement ‘oh my glasses have steamed up’ as you’re wiping them.

Does anybody agree with me on this? can you think of more examples? I’d love to hear more

    As someone who's worn glasses since I was 13 definitely agree with all of these. Oh the pain you get if you try wear them in bed, so awkward! And the sunglasses thing – drives me mad. I have contacts but I like my glasses too much so don't like using them, seems silly for a pair of sunglasses.
    Also at the moment my glasses are forever steaming up, go away cold weather!

    Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes haha. Cleaning them is the worst thing. I don't know how, but mine just seem to attract dirt. I actually got tested and ordered new ones yesterday… Gave in and ordered some prescription sunglasses ready for my holiday this year (and hoping they'll get used from the sunshine we'll get in summer 😉 haha)

      Yes – I always go for the 2 for 1 deal and get my sunglasses free but I do get good use out of them in summer
