If you use spectacles recommended by an optician (not some glasses you got at a store or shed so you could call yourself a nerd), you will understand the struggles.
It is all fun and games when you make fun of mates with spectacles 24 hours a day, (there was a particular senior back in boarding school who showers with her glasses on!) or you think it is cool to wear glasses everywhere, until you can’t type on your computer without squinting and ending up with migraine before you even complete a Microsoft Word page. Then you had to go get your eyes tested and you are dropped with the bombshell “You need to start using glasses!”
This was my story.
Of course I had mixed feelings about the news. I thought okay, maybe my wish finally came true and oh no! I cannot boast of perfect eyesight anymore.
Its been more than a year being subjected to wearing glasses to type on my computer and phone because the light rays affect my eyes so badly, I must say it sucks!
Guys! It is no fun and games. The struggle is real.
I am typing this right now and I am wearing my glasses, of course I am changing them soon to a bigger frame because my eyes are just huge.
Anyone who is in the same boat as me will understand how hard it is. Can you relate to these:
FINDING THE RIGHT PAIR OF GLASSES
It is not always easy finding the perfect pair that fits your face. It is usually hard to pick the right ones. I remember my first time too, the optician placed a lot of choices in front of me and I kept thinking “this one is better…no this is.”
Needless to say I went home with the wrong choice. I just couldn’t choose one. I was a newbie to this sort of thing.
NEEDING TO FIND YOUR GLASSES WHEN YOU NEED THEM.
This is real mates! There are many times I just wouldn’t know where my glasses are. I’d think I left them in my bag and I find them in my wardrobe. Then I ask myself how they got there. Or when I need to wear them and I realise my glasses are far away from me so I have to get up and get them. Aargh!
EXPLAINING TO PEOPLE THAT THEY AREN’T FASHION STATEMENT
This happens so often, I get tired of replying. Its not fun going around with glasses on and having to answer questions about wearing them and why. I’m always like… come on!
LYING DOWN AND TRYING NOT TO BREAK YOUR GLASSES
You can’t lie down peacefully on your side and not worry about breaking your glasses. You just can’t, it so unfair. You can only lie on your back. What’s the fun in that?
EVENTUALLY BREAKING THEM
This is just too sad to be funny. Imagine needing your glasses for an important exam or reading and you broke them a night before. *tears*
MEETING DUDES WITH FETISHES
“Oh! You look so good with those glasses on. Like a sexy science teacher.”
Dude, what the eff?
I am blind without them, they are my source of survival. Imagine being chased by a monster or something and my glasses fall off suddenly.
And you are over there staring at me because me in nerdy glasses arouses sexual desire in you. Come on!
Seriously I could go all day but my bad eye sight won’t let me. LOL.
What are your struggles?
What is the weirdest thing anyone has said to you while wearing glasses?
Do you automatically get turned on when you see a cute lady or dude in glasses?
