Being visually impaired sucks for more than one reason. Here's a list of a few things that I resent about having to wear glasses...
1) The "nerd" stigma
It's sad but true. Kids that wear glasses are automatically classified as "nerds" and become targets for bullying. If you (like myself) were unfortunate enough to have glasses during your childhood, you probably were called "nerd", "geek", "book-worm" or "four-eyes" more than a few times.
2) The foggy lenses
Heat creates steam and steam fogs up your lenses; all of a sudden, you're blind and opening the oven is a safety hazard.
3) The 'windscreen' effect
It's pouring from the heavens and your glasses are spattered with raindrops. However unlike your car, these screens don't have any window-wipers. Guess you're gonna have to cycle home blind.
4) The expense
If you want to wear a pair of glasses that are in any way stylish, you've gotta empty your wallet. And if you want to wear contact lenses, you've gotta empty your wallet again.
5) Prescription sunglasses
Damn. No cheap Penney's sunglasses for us.
6) Prescription swimming goggles
Double damn. Without these, we can't tell if we're swimming in a straight line.
7) Ball games
Ever been hit in the face with a football while wearing a pair of glasses? Your face hurts and your glasses break.
8) Losing your glasses
This is a serious problem. Please, don't laugh at us.
9) Hipster posers
These people wear fake glasses and think that it's cool. Okay, this isn't really a problem. It's just REALLY REALLY ANNOYING.
Pity the blind. Give us dogs.
