13 things only people who wear glasses know to be true

Oh, glasses… How we have a love/hate relationship with you. On one hand, we kinda need you to see and we appreciate you for granting us that privilege. However, on the other hand, you are basically the bane of our life.


Here are 13 things you’ll only understand if you’re one of the 6 in 10 people who wear glasses. (Which by the way, is the coolest percentage of the population.)

1. You live for the euphoria of finally being able to see after cleaning your glasses


2. Snapchat never recognises your face when you’re playing with funky filters

All we want in life is to be able to take a cute selfie with puppy ears.

3. This vicious cycle

Life is unfair.

4. You’ve definitely considered patenting windscreen wipers for glasses

5. This is your life in winter

6. You’ve sacrificed vision just so people can appreciate your flawless eye makeup

7. You live for mini thrills like this

Totally just accidentally gave ourselves a uni-brow.

8. There’s no question you hate being asked as much as “How many fingers am I holding up?”

9. Everyone tries on your glasses like it’s the latest fashion trend

Not like you need these to see or anything.

10. Backhanded compliments really grind your gears

11. Napping is a daily struggle

12. You can’t wear shades and it kills you inside

13. And finally… everyone thinks you’re smart just because you wear glasses


It’s probably just an illusion but we’ll take the compliment anyway thx.

Can you relate to any of the struggles on this list? Tell us any more you can think of with a tweet to @maximumpop!
