23 Struggles That Everyone Who Wore Glasses As A Kid Will Remember.
Not everyone is blessed with perfect 20/20 eye vision, unfortunately. It sucks that certain people have to spend so much on prescribed glasses and/or contacts. Whether you were born with poor eye vision, or your eye vision started slowly getting worse as you grew up — being told that you need glasses is always a little painful to grasp.
At least if you developed poor eye vision, you used to know what life was like seeing the world perfectly fine without the aid of glasses. If you're born with it, however, life was literally a blur before you owned your first pair of glasses. Living this kind of life is not easy, it comes with various struggles.
If you grew up with glasses or even started wearing them later on, these struggles will definitely relate.
