Most people consider glasses to be a burden, an annoying addition to the facade. The frame perched on your nose can be seen as a potential spoiler for those who are conscious about their looks. But, in reality, they are one of the most important accessories you should have in your daily life.
If you are packing your purse for the day, you should always remember to put your glasses in it. Here are a few reasons why you should do so:
Getting a clearer vision
It’s common to find yourself squinting at the display board or the traffic light timer, especially at night. At the same time, you may also face difficulty in reading the newspaper text from a short distance. Both conditions, short-sightedness and long-sightedness, are extremely common eye conditions. Having your glasses makes it easier to read such boards and texts, thereby reducing your chances of accidents while walking or driving.
Defective vision puts a lot of strain on your eyes, sometimes so much that your head starts aching. Some people may ignore the headache, thinking it will pass on its own. But, this is a bad idea because it can cause severe damage to your eyes over the years. You should, therefore, get the corrective glasses and carry them every time you step out of your house. This will keep eye-related headaches at bay, especially when you have to work on your computer for hours.
Keeping your privacy
If you got up on the wrong foot this morning (like all of us from time to time), and you don’t feel like talking to anyone in the morning, Sunglasses are the perfect solution for you. It seems that when you are wearing sunglasses, most people won’t bother you and will often leave you alone because you don’t make any eye contact with them.
Making you look smart
We can’t help it – glasses makes everyone look smarter than they really are. While back in the day it was often associated with a nerdish type of people, these days geeks are the new rockstars of the world, so everyone wants to be one!
Protecting your eyes
Your eyes are highly sensitive organs, and extremely prone to allergies and light damage. Specific air-borne allergens can irritate your eyes, causing them to become red or watery. Dust is the most common allergen affecting people’s eyes. To protect yourself, you need a pair of glasses. They act as a protective shield and prevents your eyes from coming into contact with allergens. Wearing glasses is, therefore, more about protection than looks.
Enhancing your style
Besides acting as protective gear, your glasses are also good fashion accessories. Most of you may think that wearing glasses makes you look old or like a stereotypical, pseudo-intellectual professor. But, in reality, they enhance your looks to a great extent. There are a plethora of styles that can suit the face cut and the preferences of different people. Remember to take into account the ‘style’ factor while choosing your glasses.
