Anyone Who's Ever Worn Glasses Has Had These 16 Annoying Things Said To Them

"Why don't you get LASIK" omg stop!!!

1. First, there's the classic: "Why don't you get contacts?"

2. And the ol' "Are you like, blind without them?"

A concept that y'all 20/20 vision peeps find weirdly hilarious.

3. And "Can I try them on???

Assuming you even ASK for permission, which, SMH, not all of you do.

4. Followed shortly by "WOW, YOU'RE REALLY BLIND!"

Consider your 20/20 privilege, yo.

5. Don't even get us started on all the times we've had someone wave their hands in our face and say, "Wait so, can you even see me???"

We see you, and we'd like to punch you.

6. And let's cut that "How many fingers am I holding up?" shit out.

7. Then there's all those skeptical "Do you REALLY need to wear them??"

Fox 2000 Pictures

Yes. Next question.

8. Followed by an incredulous "But what if you forget them?"

Trust us. We don't.

9. And for the record, we're VERY tired of hearing "Have you thought about getting LASIK?"

20th Century Fox / Via giphy.com

Spoiler: LASIK eye surgery can cost thousands of dollars, whereas a pair of glasses costs maybe a few hundo. You do the math.

10. Still, it's why asking "Why do you only have one pair?" is annoying, too.

They're not LASIK-level expensive, but we're not out here tryna accessorize for each day of the week, either.

11. And you do know saying "You look prettier without your glasses" is backhanded AF, right?

Thanks, but no thanks.

Thanks, but no thanks.

12. As is "You look so weird without them!"

ABC / Via giphy.com

Keep that damn thought to yourself, dude.

13. And don't even think about pulling a, "Your eyes are so small without them on!"

How rude!

How rude!

14. You might think you're cute when you say, "I wish I could wear glasses!" but...it's not.

We'd prefer 20/20 vision any day.

15. And finally, questions like "So, do you shower with them on?" just make us kind of confused.

(No, FYI).

16. And if you really want an answer to "How do you watch 3D movies though?" we refer you to this:

It's a lifestyle.

In closing, let's all come together and agree to never say those things again. Cool? Cool.
