1. The struggle of choosing a pair of frames
Choosing a pair of frames can be a major life decision for glasses wearers, as choosing the wrong pair is like having to wear the same bad outfit for a year at a minimum. A pair of glasses is also a fashion statement these days.
At Feel Good Contacts, we are all too familiar with this struggle which is why we have plenty of guides to help you decide on a pair of frames such as our ‘Glasses Frame Size Guide’ and ‘What glasses suit me’.
2. Foggy glasses
Those who wear glasses know how frustrating it is when they become foggy, which can happen pretty easily. For example, when opening the oven or the dishwasher, drinking soup or even a hot drink. Luckily, you can purchase The AB Mask Anti-Fog Cloth to help you tackle this annoying problem.
3. Being unable to see during the middle of the night
This can be pretty scary if you wake up suddenly in the middle of the night and can’t figure out your surroundings. Objects can appear as frightening figures, and getting to the toilet can become an obstacle course.
4. Applying makeup
Yup, even applying eye makeup can present itself as a challenge, especially for those with strong prescriptions who can’t see their eyes at a distance when looking in the mirror.
5. The fear of switching to contact lenses
With numerous horror stories about, it’s no wonder that those who wear glasses are fearful of wearing contact lenses. Many of these horror stories are, in fact, myths, and if you're thinking about switching to contact lenses for a bit, you can find some helpful articles on our Eye Care Hub.
6. Those handy cleaning cloths are often misplaced or lost
Losing your cleaning cloth can be a nightmare, especially if you’re out and about and find smears on your lenses. While you may think that using your shirt is a good idea, this should be avoided at all costs as it can result in fine scratches and streak marks. Our Feel Good Pouch is a handy accessory for on the go. Not only can it be used to store your glasses in, but it also doubles up as a cleaning cloth and is harder to misplace.
7. Weather complications
People who wear glasses are all too familiar with the complications the weather can present. Humidity causes foggy lenses, the sun means having to carry a second pair of prescription sunglasses, and rain equals droplets that obscure your vision; there is just no winning!
Fear not; while the weather can present various problems, eyeglass lens coatings can offer various solutions. You can choose from anti-fog lenses, a hydrophobic coating (which resists water droplets) or photochromic lenses (transition lenses), which act as prescription sunglasses and turn dark when exposed to UV rays, blocking 100% of UVA and UVB light.
8. People asking to try on your glasses
You’ll know how frustrating this is if you’re a glasses wearer. The fingerprints and unsolicited opinions are enough to drive us just a little bit mad, not to mention the fear that they’ll be placed face down afterwards.
9. Lying on your side while watching a movie or reading a book

Sitting through a 3-hour long 3D movie wearing 3D glasses over your regular glasses makes you wonder if it's worth it.
11. Forgetting what you look like without glasses
On the odd days that you don't wear glasses, you'll often be surprised by your reflection.
