My doctor says that everyone will need corrective lenses eventually, so this post is a call for help. Those of you with years of experience managing glasses, how do you cope with these 10 bummers?
2. Try showering blind. Without specs, you've gotta rely on touch alone to determine if you've missed a spot shaving. I'm in there holding bottles an inch away from my face. Shampoo? Conditioner? Absurd.
3.Whaddya need wipers for these things? Trying to hang in the snow storms with my girls, I feel like I'm seeing underwater. Walk. Wipe. Toss snowball. Wipe. Wet lashes. Wipe. :::buzz kill
7. Sunglasses. How? Seriously.
8. I'm pretty bummed that I'll be stuck squinting if I want to swim with my kiddos this month. What do swimmers with glasses DO? Blind breaststroke? Um...
And although I can manage yoga in glasses, vigorous workouts are more of an issue. Sweaty specs? Ew.
10. The big one...dependency. What if these suckers break? Back ups on hand all the time?
I currently rely on four things in life—family, friends, coffee and birth control. Corrective lenses don't make the cut.
Aside from clear vision, they offer extra protection against sand, dust and debris, have the potential to add some style into your daily groove, and if you're like Piggy from Lord of the Flies, they can increase your chances of survival if you're stranded on an island.
But we all remember how that turned out so…
For me, contacts lenses were a bummer at times but reliance on glasses is a substantially bigger drag.
All eyes ahead for this LASIK. Make me see!
Until then, coping strategies are welcome.
How do you deal with wearing glasses?
Counting down to clarity!
Have a happy week, friends.
