If you don't require glasses already, chances are you will at some point in your life. Here's what you have to look forward to: 

1. Losing them

And not being able to find them because you need them to see.

2. Whipping them off for photographs

Glasses = minus likes.

3. Wearing 3D glasses at the cinema

So I either have to watch blurry 3D or wear one pair of glasses on top of another? Cool.

4. Prescription sunglasses

All well and good until the sun goes down.

5. Rain

Being caught in a downpour and all you can see is this.

7. Taking a nap

Or watching TV lying down. Enjoy that piece of metal digging into the side of your face.

8. Not knowing what the score is in a match 

You agree to go to the pub but don't want to wear your glasses. Now you're annoying everyone with constant questions like 'what's the score now?' and 'how long is left?'

Questions

9. People grabbing your glasses and trying them on

Give them back.

10. And then saying 'oh my god you're so blind' 

Not half as blind as you are annoying.

11. Not wanting to wear glasses on a first date

I shan't reveal my true self.

12. They are constantly dirty 

Your sleeve is on a round-the-clock cleaning cycle

14. Cooking 

All that bloody steam.

16. They're bloody expensive 

Which is why you've had the same pair for 12 years.

17. Forgetting you're wearing contacts and putting glasses on 

Every time.

18. Playing sports with lenses

Hold play there ref, while I spend the next 20 minutes looking for my contact lense. 

Contact

18. Or worse... swimming 

Chlorine in the eyes is bad. Chlorine in the eyes with contact lenses while wearing lenses is hell. 

Lenses

19. People assume you're smart

Believe me, I'm as thick as the specs on my face. 

Stupid

20. Or that you're a hipster 

Ugh

Hipster

21. Seeing someone you know who didn't know who wore glasses and them having to say that

"Didn't you? Well I didn't know you wore ill-fitting jeans but there you go." 

Stupidity

22. When you're not wearing your glasses and someone wants you to look at something on their phone

Getting your squint on.

23. And finally, when it's hot your glasses actually start sliding off your face 

The struggle is real
