Welcome to the inside of my head.

  • You spend half your life looking for them…even when they’re on your face.
  • You have a mark on your nose from your glasses, and probably behind your ears too.
  • You look like a complete idiot wearing your 3D glasses on top of your normal glasses in the cinema.
  • The same goes for safety goggles at school.
  • When you’re walking in the rain, you’re pretty much walking blind.
  • You get your glasses caught in your clothes when you put them on.
  • You forget you’re wearing them sometimes in the shower.
  • In every picture of you, there’s reflection off your glasses.
  • Your glasses are just as much a fashion statement as your clothes.
  • You look down upon all these non-blind hipsters wearing frames.
  • Your glasses completely fog up when you go from somewhere cold to somewhere hot. (This is a real issue in Winter when you use public transport.)
  • You lost your glasses cleaning cloth a LOOONG time ago and now just use your clothes.
  • You clean your glasses and suddenly the world looks miraculously clearer and brighter.
  • You wear your glasses so much that people don’t actually recognise you without them.
  • Prescription sunglasses are too bloody expensive so you just don’t wear them (or if you do, you buy normal ones and walk around blind).
  • You constantly worry that your glasses will fly off when you’re on a ride at a theme park.
  • When buying new glasses you spent about three hours trying to find the perfect pair…to you know…match your face shape.
  • You’ve taken several stupid pictures at the photo booth in Specsavers.
  • Somebody comes up to you and says ‘Oculus Reparo’. Common occurrence of course.
