1. Having to wear face masks like this:

Because not being able to see for half an hour isn't so fun.

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

It would probably help if you cleaned them with a proper cloth rather than your jumper.

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

Or making the super-fashion-forward choice to wear sunglasses on top of your specs.

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

Then being too afraid to move your head for the whole film, just in case they slip down.

10. Having your glasses steam up when you do basic household tasks.

Alternatively, getting a steam clean for your glasses every time you open a dishwasher.

11. Even when you do something as simple as getting a cuppa.

You put up with it, though, because no one wants lukewarm tea.
