1. 3D films
"Yaaaaay, technology!" said everyone except glasses wearers. Trying to cram on a pair of 3D specs over your existing ones is no mean feat. And looks utterly ridiculous. Sadly your suggestions of listening to a really good audio book instead of seeing a movie are constantly ignored by your mates.
Why haven't they invented wind-screen wipers for glasses yet?!
3. Misplacing your glasses
The infinitely annoying quandary of losing your glasses, but neeeding 20/20 vision in order to find them :'(
4. Prescription charges
These can be a regular thing for the optically challenged, which means having to spunk a large portion of your income down Specsavers.
5. But glasses shopping does rule
Pricey it may be, but you get all excited about how the NEW YOU will look in those cool new frames with a really cool tortoiseshell effect and super-thin anti-glare lenses.
6. Contact lens wearers (might) hate you
You feel silently judged by people that have chosen to wear contacts instead of glasses. You think glasses look stupid, do you? So you essentially hate my face? Well, SCREW YOU, you tell them. In your mind.
7. People thinking they're fake
Clear-lens glasses are a fashion thing now, which is great for boosting the cool-factor of the spec-wearing population, but crap when people dismiss your extortionate actual frames for high street knock-offs. The eyesight struggle is real, people.
8. Snog dilemmas
Particularly applicable if the person you're snogging also wears glasses. Nothing spoils a romantic moment, or makes you feel quite so much like an inept schoolgirl having her first fumble, quite like a pre-snog specs-clink.
9. Foreplay dilemmas
So, at some point during sexual proceedings the glasses have to come off…..Which is kind of distracting. And we're then left with the issue of where we should put them. We don't want to be rolling over them. Yet we don't want to interrupt the flow by hunting for a suitably safe nook, or tucking them safely away in a specially prepared tuppaware box either.
10. Makeup woes
Too much eye makeup and your eye area looks too 'busy', but not enough and your magnified eyes look ten times more dead than the average eye-owner. Then there's the dry-heave inducing foundation build-up around the bridge of your glasses. Beauty for the bespectacled ain't easy.
11. Getting steamy
Steamed up specs are a regular pain the arse (and eyes). Enter any hot environment like a bus or pub, and your eyes will fog up quicker than you can say 'well, this is awkward for all involved'. You can't even enjoy a cuppa without a fog attack. FFS.
12. The character assumptions
We are not necessarily really good at maths. Neither are we porn stars.
13. Haircuts are a bad idea
When you get a dramatic new haircut, it often makes your glasses look totally wrong for your face. So, top tip for all glasses wearers: never change your appearance, ever.
14. Speccy wannabes
The intense annoyance when people try on your glasses and make comments like "Woah you're soooo blind" (cheers), or the even more annoying "These hardly make things look any different, do you even need them?!" (I HATE YOU). No, you cannot try our glasses on.
