Only people who wear glasses will understand these trials and tribulations

Got bad eyesight? We sympathise.


Only people who wear glasses will understand these trials and tribulations

WHAT’S UP, FOUR eyes?

Oh, what, you’re offended by that?

Well, don’t be. A lot of us here at DailyEdge.ie are also glasses-wearers, and we understand your pain and suffering all too well – as only a fellow spectacle-rocker can. Let’s work through the hurt together.

Opening the dishwasher? Steamy glasses.

Checking on a pot while cooking? Steamy glasses.

Coming inside from the cold? Steamy glasses.

Unexpected sneeze? Steamy glasses.

Could people who don’t wear glasses STOP LAUGHING at this please? It brings the glasses-wearer right back to primary school.

The cruel Catch 22 of mislaying your specs. You can’t see cos you can’t find your glasses, but you can’t find your glasses cos you can’t fecking see anything.

3. Forgetting to take out your lens

Ever had a night on the tiles and woken up with your lens still firmly in your eye? After the initial “I’M CURED! I CAN SEE!” moment you feel extreme guilt, and more than a little ocular irritation. Sigh.

5. Forgetting them

Forgetting your glasses when have no more contacts. Having no more contacts when you’ve got a big night out coming up and don’t want to bring the specs. Glasses and lenses are our friends, but are also treacherous beasts that are lying in wait to ruin fun.

6. People’s commentary

No, don’t ask to try my glasses on. Yes, I am “blind”. No, they don’t give me headaches. Yes, you are a pain in the hole.

8. People being smug about not wearing glasses

20/20 VISION IS IT? NEVER WORE GLASSES A DAY IN YOUR LIFE, IS IT? WE’RE DELIGHTED FOR YOU. NO, HONESTLY. GOOD FOR YOU.

9. Disimproving vision

The sinking feeling in the opticians when you realise you need to bump up the prescription and you are definitely getting older.

10. Dirt and smears

And feeling like an aul one whipping out the cloth to give your glasses a good clean. Distinctly not sexy.
