When Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
I remember when I first started wearing glasses. It was particularly memorable because it was the same year that my experience with orthodontia and the onset of puberty each made their initial appearance. Being an eleven-year-old boy is not just fun and games. I digress. . .
I wore glasses but only for distance in school and later while driving. Eventually, I switched to contact lenses. It seems I experienced many types of lenses. Hard. Soft. Extended-wear. This became a part of my life for decades.
A little over two years ago, I switched back to wearing glasses. I don't wear them all of time but more often than not. I generally didn't give much thought to them until wearing face-coverings became a part of everyday life. The combination of glasses and masks are not the best pairing.
While out-and-about when masks or some other face-covering is required, my glasses tend to "fog over". Second-hand smoke is generally no longer much of an issue in our area but other annoyances still exist. The combination of eyeglasses and face-coverings is only one.
I realize it is a first-world problem. I'll survive this annoyance. It's amazing to see what can be overcome.
