For all the people who don't have 20/20 vision, are known for being clumsy, and who have not gotten around to getting contacts- this one's for you. Wearing glasses everyday seemed like an easy task when my eye doctor first told me I was near sighted in my right eye and far sighted in my left. After wearing glasses everyday for about four months, I have been acquainted with 4 struggles of having "four eyes" and being clumsy.
1. Running into stationary objects
Like I said earlier, I am a clumsy. I run into doors at least 3 times a week, 2 times if it's a good week. Now that I have glasses, every time I run into a door and it hits my face, I immediately panic that my glasses might be broken. It's a miracle I haven't even scratched them yet. *Knock on wood*
2. My dog licking my glasses
This point has nothing to do with being clumsy but, when I come home from class my little dachshund will eagerly greet me with dog kisses on my face. He doesn't leave out my glasses, which results in slobbery streak marks all over my the lenses. Leaving me to constantly clean them because my dog tends to lick my glasses a lot.
If you are a clumsy person, you are quite acquainted with falling. Whether it be falling down stairs, up stairs, tripping on the sidewalk, falling off your bed- you've experienced it all many times. Once you add glasses to the mix, it can make your fall more embarrassing especially if you break them.
4. When your glasses aren't perfectly situated on your face
When you are clumsy, you get used to feeling embarrassed or you unknowingly do things that bring embarrassment upon you. I am accustom to both. Since I have ran my face (and glasses) into many doors, my glasses don't fit me as well as they used to- leaving me to have to fix their positioning on my face. Sometimes my glasses will be situated crooked on my face and I won't notice for some time- very embarrassing and comical.
