Not many people are happy when told that they need an eyeglass prescription to see properly. As children, we may have fantasized about wearing those thick-rimmed glasses that made others look intellectual and cool. However, those who need glasses to see know better. While glasses are very effective in temporarily improving vision, they do have their downsides.

Wearing glasses can be a daily struggle for some. There are many reasons why one would be eager to ditch their eyeglass prescription.

The Disadvantages of Wearing Specs

When glasses are your only source of vision correction, you rely pretty heavily on them. Things like not being able to see until you put your glasses on in the morning, or not being able to wear sunglasses unless you pay for a pricey prescription pair become pretty tiring after a while. Participating in sports or swimming become difficult. Even something as simple as lying on your side while watching TV is nearly impossible.

Many people also experience headaches as a result of wearing glasses. Some people experience headaches as a result of the pressure put on the side of their head and sinuses while wearing their specs. However, this could also just mean that your prescription needs to be updated to decrease eye strain.
