Helloooooooo thereeeeeee!

I’m really excited to present today’s post to you because I had this sudden burst of inspiration last night to do it, coz my mind has been blank for days on what to do for my next post.

Today I shall be discussing the disadvantages of wearing glasses.

If you are a wearer of glasses (like me) you will understand the struggles we face.

First off, it gets in your way. Glasses makes a lot of things difficult to do. For instance, swimming, reading, and playing sports.

Yes I said reading. Because looking down for prolonged times can actually cause the glasses to slip down your nose. It really is annoying.

When you sweat, the glasses will also not stay in place because the sweat makes your whole face slippery, making the glasses slide down your nose and from behind your ears.

Secondly, it’s inconvenient.Β When you want to take a short nap, it would be sooooo much easier to just close your eyes and float away to dream land but NOT FOR GLASSES WEARING PEOPLE! We have to take off our glasses, put them somewhere that is safe and easy to reach once awake, and THEN we can go to sleep.

Thirdly, we have to handle the responsibility of keeping our glasses clean and safe.Β We have to make sure that

a) our lenses are not dirty so we can see clearly
b) we don’t break our glasses

Unfortunately for me, I already broke one of my glasses and the new one cost RM500 or $120. (yes I converted for you US citizens. How nice of me) And that is a LOT of cash.

Besides, did I mention keeping our lenses clean is NOT easy? Every time something splashes onto the lens we have to clean it off with…. our shirt. Yup that’s right. I have not seen anyone who wears glasses to bring their spectacle cloth around so the most convenient thing on hand is your clothes.

You might think, “Hey that’s pretty easy!” After all, you’re always wearing something, right? WRONG! Well yeah, it’s true that it’s easy but sometimes when you try to wipe some smudge off, you just make it worse coz you will smear that little speck of grime across your whole lens.

Because of all these reasons, I changed to contact lenses. Maybe I’ll do a post on that someday. MAYBE.

Goodbye for now! πŸ˜€

Do you wear glasses too? Any more points to add on?

  2. Haha! Fun, post! I have only had glasses for about 9 months, but I still get it. πŸ˜› Though, I am the weird person who tries to keep a glasses cleaning cloth in my purse, because I hate when you use your shirt and it makes it even worse. :/ πŸ˜›

    How are you liking your contacts? πŸ™‚

    1. Ah consider yourself blessed that you only started wearing glasses when you hit your teen years. A lot of people I know who wear glasses start wearing them as young as the age of 8! πŸ˜›

      The contacts are great so far! It was a little hard to get used to it at first, but after a while it was awesome πŸ™‚


  3. I wore glasses for 9 years before just recently I changed to contact lenses too. And it was for the reasons you listed that I changed over too!! All the point you made are soooooooooooooo true. Glasses can be super annoying. πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ But I still wear mine if I’m too lazy to put in my contacts πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Nice! I believe you made the right choice πŸ˜‰ Even if it can get a lil’ costly… ANYWAY. Yes I wear glasses sometimes too but I try not to do it for more than 2-3 days if not, when I change back to contacts it’s gonna be a little weird.

    1. Hang on, I thought you can’t wear glasses while doing gymnastics? If you are really serious about gymnastics, maybe you could consider asking your parents to get contact lenses for you?

      Oh thank you! I think I will do it, it seems interesting πŸ˜‰


  4. I wear glasses and I want contacts really bad because I like better without my glasses. Also I forgot that I put them on this morning so I just blinked and scrunched my nose to make sure they’re there XD

  6. Glasses can most definitely be annoying for all the reasons said above. It’s a nice idea to try out contact lenses and see how much you like them! Thank you for putting the struggles of glasses owners in words. Have a nice day!

  7. UGHHH yes I wear glasses at school and it gets dirty and foggy and rainy and IMPOSSIBLE to clean without a product. Idk I feel like I’m not myself with glasses on if that makes sense. I used to think my eyes were fine until I took off my glasses and the transition though. πŸ˜‚ Glasses get in the way for a lot of things but I’m still thankful for what they do.
