"How many fingers am I holding up?"

1. Having to wear face masks like this:

2. Cleaning your glasses, only for them to get dirty again 30 seconds later.

3. Spending 99% of a roller coaster ride worrying that your glasses will fall off.

4. Dealing with mascara smudges all the time.

5. Putting your glasses down for a second, only to forget where you've put them.

6. Being forced to make a choice between not being able to see or being blinded by the sun.

7. Having your glasses slide down your nose when both of your hands are holding something.

8. Spending ages at the cinema trying to align 3D glasses on top of your regular ones.
