The Problem With Sunglasses

Hello Humans of the internet! I’m a person that wears glasses. I need my glasses and by need my glasses I mean that I can see about 10 centimeters when I don’t have them on. Oh, what’s that? You don’t understand what that has to do with sunglasses. Let me tell you.

When you wear glasses, you’re limited on your sunglasses options. You can wear those giant sunglasses that go over your glasses, except I prefer to wear larger framed glasses so they don’t always fit over my glasses. And have you ever worn two pairs of glasses ? It’s not comfortable.

You can wear those things that clip on over the frames. I don’t know if you know what they are called or if you know what I’m talking about. I just call them dad sunglasses.

Or you can get prescription sunglasses. But that’s so expensive. What if I want to have sunglasses that match my outfits? What if I want to have weird shaped glasses? Like stars or hearts. What if I want rainbow colored sunglasses? None for me. I guess you could be like Schulz and just take off your glasses and put on sunglasses. That seems very dangerous to me though. I don’t want to walk around not being able to see.

And fashion aside: sun protection.

And yes, I know that I could technically wear contacts and then I could wear sunglasses. But contacts are a pain.

Am I just being fussy and whining about this when there are lots of possible solutions? yes. I just want to have eyes that can see and the ability to go to the store and get fun, cheap sunglasses. And I want to drive without having the sun in my eyes. That’s all. That was a bit of a rant, so I’ll just stop now. I like sunglasses and I’m jealous of all the people that can just wake up in the morning and see without putting anything on their face.

much love

AK
