Things Only People Who Wear Glasses Understand

I wear glasses, right?? I mean, I didn’t tell you before, but I’m telling you now;) There are some things, amusing and annoying, that I find me and my friends who wear glasses only understand. Keep reading to find out!!

When people ask to try on your glasses– Ok. So I bet that every single person who has worn glasses has experienced this. They non-glasses wearers try them on and go: “Wow, you’re blind!!” Uhhhh, no we’re not. We just can’t see as well as you. Duh.

When your glasses constantly get in they way at the gym- Whenever I go for a run, my glasses always slide down my nose. Like always. I’m not such a good athlete, and one thing that makes me look even more hopeless is those glasses sliding down my sweaty nose. The gym is a whole other story. When I try to stretch, BAM. I wack my glasses, and in turn, they wack my face. Not nice.

When you lose your glasses, and you can’t see anything without them- You know that frustrating moment when you lose your glasses, but need your glasses to find your glasses? The worst.

When you’re in the rain, and you can’t see anything- One day, while coming back from school, it was raining really, really, hard. I had an umbrella, but I couldn’t really take it out of my bag cuz there was no shade, and I honestly just forgot to take it out before. When I was walking out, within seconds, all I could see were raindrops. And I couldn’t even take off my glasses, because I can’t see where I’m going without them. To non-glasses wearers, this may not seem like a lot,but….uh, hello?? We’re walking out like zombies, with no idea were we’re going. Sweet life,huh??

When people ask “How many fingers am I holding up?”- Ok,mate. Did you guys not get what I said before? We ain’t blind. We can see. We just see blurry. It’s not rocket science.

When people say”You look so pretty without glasses!”– We don’t want to know. Keep your thoughts with yourself,please.

When we’re going to pick out new frames- You feel like you HAVE to get the right frames because they absolutely define the meaning of you until you get new ones again? I feel ya.

I hope you guys could relate to this post if you wear glasses. These comments/experiences are sometimes amusing and sometimes annoying, so I felt like sharing them with you guys. Feel free to comment! See you in my next post! Anna xx

  1. Ahhh I get thissss!! I don’t wear my glasses all the time – only when I’m on my laptop for a long period of time (I can see close though) and at school for the board. So sometimes I’d go to school without my glasses by accident because I don’t really wear my glasses at home or in nature. And people would be like “you look so different” and I’m like um sure. πŸ˜‚ I’m used to myself without glasses so it’s always really weird to hear that. I used to be really insecure about my glasses but now it enhances my features and I love how it looks. And omg I feel you about the frameee! It’s like I’m getting an extra organ on my face or something. πŸ˜‚ Love this post!

    1. Haha you’re so lucky! I have to wear my glasses all the time, and even though I can see fine without them, I’m always afraid that I’m gonna slam into something and embarrass myselfπŸ˜‚

      Yeah exactly! I’m used to myself without glasses so I really don’t get when people say”you look different” I’m sure you’re really pretty with or without ❀

      Extra organ? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So on point! Thank you!!
