People often ask you how many fingers they're holding up.

So eyeglasses are sort of a cool thing right now. It gives you extra cred in the professional environment and makes you appear smarter in class. But there are caveats. There are a number of downsides that folks with 20/20 vision (and wear glasses merely for the cool factor) just don't and wouldn't be able to understand.

Here are 12 of them:


1)   YOU ACTUALLY KNOW YOUR FACE SHAPE

Most people will die without ever finding out what their face shape is. You're not one of those people. For you, getting glasses is not just about finding a pair that you like or one that suits your budget. There's also a need to consider the frame that suits your face shape. Failure to do so can either make you look too round, too square or just too, erm, off.

2)   YOUR EYESIGHT SERVES AS YOUR ICEBREAKER

"What's your vision?"

"Nababasa mo ba 'yon kahit nakatayo ka dito?"

"Ilan to?" (Pertaining to the fingers he's holding up)

UGH.


3)   YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN CALLED FOUR-EYES

And they assume you have clearer vision just because.


4)   BALL IS (NOT) LIFE

Ever since you were a kid, you've always wanted to play basketball but you can't because your glasses might slide off, and somebody might step on them and break them. You've considered wearing goggles once but you looked so funny in them that you just accepted the fact that the sport hates you.

"Well, back to books and videogames," you tell yourself.

5)   YOU ALWAYS CARRY AROUND A HANKY FOR YOUR GLASSES

Because life feels so much brighter when you've just wiped them off.


6)   EYE TESTS ARE THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES

Nothing is more stressful to you than standing at a distance from a chart, trying to identify what appears to be a bunch of random squiggles. You're like: "It's an 'F.' No wait, it's a 'U.' Oh, F U!"

7)   PEOPLE TRY ON YOUR GLASSES

When people ask if they can try on your glasses, you pretend you're okay with it. Truth is, you don't really understand the whole point of the exercise. It feels like they're just rubbing it in that they've got 20/20 visions and you're blind AF.

8)   AND WHEN THEY DO TRY ON YOUR GLASSES, THEY START ACTING, ERM, SILLY

They start to act hysterical, saying "God! My eyes will get blurry vision, too!"

"Guys, bad eyesight isn't contagious. CHILL YO."


9)   YOU HATE 3D

Finding your seat in the cinema house is hard enough. But nothing in life has been harder than trying to fit those 3D glasses on top of your regular glasses.


10)   KISSING CAN BE DIFFICULT

You have to constantly move your glasses out of the way because if you don't, you'll probably hit your girl with them, and end your "moment." Damn it.

11)   PEOPLE THINK YOU'RE SMART

They assume you know a lot because you are wearing glasses. The expectations become so much higher.


12)   YOU REGULARLY SWITCH GLASSES WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHO ALSO WEAR GLASSES

Finally, something fun to come out of this whole bad eyesight and glasses thing.
