Glasses are normally divided into sunglasses and eyeglasses. Each are important to your eyes for different reasons. Sunglasses are important to protect your eyes against the harmful rays of the sun, meaning you have to wear them even if your vision is 20/20 as long as you are exposed to the sun and its rays all day long.
Eyeglasses on the other hand are used when you already have a problem with your eyes. These problems are known as refractive errors.
Refractive errors are eyesight problems that prevent your from seeing near objects clearly (farsightedness) which directly affects your reading. Or prevents you from seeing far objects properly (nearsightedness) which directly affects your everyday life and routine. Or prevents you from seeing clearly altogether (Astigmatism).
All these errors are easily corrected by wearing the proper eyeglasses after you see your ophthalmologist.
Why get rid of glasses?
Wearing eyeglasses prevents you from having a normal life where you can go swimming, or have good photos, or looking the person you love in the eyes.
It also causes you fatigue and headaches if used for too long, or if your work is to stare into a screen all day long.
Not only that, it is easily affected by sweat, water vapor, rain and humidity.
