Top Ten Worst Things About Wearing Eye Glasses

The Top Ten

1 Being bullied for most of your childhood for needing them

In sixth grade I had glasses that were sometimes lopsided because of my different ear sizes so id get bullied for that all the time. - AnonymousChick

My vision is pretty crappy, and I wore glasses since 2nd grade, I still wear them, and I plan to get contacts in high school. - Catacorn

I just got glasses at the end of 9th grade and people were okay with it. Heh, my best friend said I looked cute with them! - KianaLexi

It was more directed to elementary school since elementary school kids tend to bully kids for the smallest things a lot more than teenagers. - Ruee

I have Lazy Eye. Everyone always says that I'm blind, when I'm not. I just have some issues with my left eye. - JakePlaid

2 Your parents giving you dorky or ugly glasses to wear as a child

I wear glasses, and they don't look dorky at all. They're a sharp, round-rectangular orange frame with transition lenses, which really make me look more sophisticated and more intelligent. So nerdy, but a stylish, smooth kind of nerdy. I look better with than without. You just need to find the frames that are right for you. - PositronWildhawk

A lot of kids are stuck with their parents forcing them to use the ugliest and biggest pair of frames they can find, making it harder to not get bullied for wearing glasses. you will get bullied regardless, but with these frames. GOSH IT SUCKS. - Ruee

When a kid kicked a soccer ball at my face and broke my glasses, my dad blamed me and got these really ugly pink ones. - AnonymousChick

3 Accidentally touching the lenses when picking up/adjusting your glasses

And they get foggy, and I have to keep wiping them. My glasses are foggy right now! - Catacorn

4 The struggle to keep the lenses clean

I can't even get through a single day without needing to clean my lenses. - Elric-san

5 Cooking while wearing glasses

Considering that I cook a lot of spicy stuff that spits from the pan, and chop a lot of onions, the glasses act very well as protection goggles. - PositronWildhawk

Lol, because they get steamed up? - eventer51314

Exactly. It's so annoying when it happens and can be hazardous too. - Ruee

6 People assuming that you look more attractive without them / don't need them
7 People taking your glasses off your face without permission just so they can try them on

The moronic girls in 2nd grade, when I got my glasses, would say "Hey Sarah? Can I try on your glasses". I would let them, and they would keep touching the lenses with their dirty fingers, and my glasses' lenses would be covered in fingerprints and dust. Now I regret ever letting them try on my glasses. - Catacorn

A lot of people can't see at all without their glasses and it makes them panic when they can't find them or someone snatches them. Stop doing this. - Ruee

That's horrible. I don't do this, but its not a good idea because it spreads eye dust and bacteria - TwilightKitsune

8 When people don't understand you don't want to wear contacts or hate them

I was born with astigmatism and severe far-sightedness (+7.50) that had the side effect of one lazy eye. Not only did I start wearing glasses when I was 4 years old, but I also had to wear a patch (like a pirate's patch, yes during the day). Apparently, contacts just didn't exist for my prescription. Luckily, my eyes have gotten exponantially better, and despite all of the resentment I harbored when I was young, those are what healed my eyes and allow me to see without glasses now. - keycha1n

Some people just can't where contacts. My dad couldn't wear contacts because his eyes were too dry and they were uncomfortable. - eventer51314

9 Your insurance giving you a limited amount of options for free glasses frames and you hate all of the options
10 Having to constantly take them off whenever you eat

I hate having to do this, because for my eyeglasses, they always droop down whenever I bend down to eat my food, so I have to take them off whenever I eat. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Looking nerdy V 1 Comment
12 Not being able to afford new glasses because your insurance no longer covers it
13 The existence of metal frames

Seriously, why do they exist? They are garbage. They always break so easily compared to getting plastic. - Ruee

14 Your eye doctor claiming you have 20/20 vision when you don't
15 Swapping between sunglasses and regular glasses

Just get transition lenses. They adjust perfectly to the level of light entering your eyes. - PositronWildhawk

I wish. I can't afford transition lenses. They are like $100-400 and health insurance companies don't cover the costs. - Ruee

16 The cost of transition lenses and how your health insurance will most likely not cover it
17 being harder to see through if it's made to control cross eyes/lazy eyes from moving too much and you feel uglier without them so you suffer
18 Running out of eye glass cleaner

Just use water, then wipe it with a paper towel, works like a charm - Catacorn

19 Forgetting your eye glass cleaner supplies at home and hoping that your shirt won't ruin your glasses
20 Unable to clean off a scratch or a certain dirt spot on your lenses and it bugs you to no end

The only thing that well and truly annoys me about having glasses. - PositronWildhawk
