Default *takes off glasses* "OMG, HOW MANY FINGERS DO I HAVE UP?!"

Why do so many people assume that if people with glasses take them off, we automatically can't see? They always ask me "HOW MANY FINGERS?" and then they'll hold up their fingers and I'll say the answer. Then they say, "OMGGGGGGGGG YOU CAN SEE!!!" Of course, I can see!

Is anyone else annoyed by this? I hate it whenever I take my glasses off to clean them, people think I'm blind.

Things get blurry for me when I put on glasses… :P No one's done that to me… I don't wear glasses, or contacts.

I know. I don't let anybody wear my glasses or wear anybody's elses because it can really damage your eyesight...

I know... That happens to me all the time too.

My mom seems to be convinced that without my glasses, I'm blind.

People are under the impression that without my contacts/ glasses I can't see two feet in front of my face. They're wrong about that, it's about ten feet or more that everything gets all blurry.

I know! People who do that are ignorant in many ways. I don't wear glasses or anything like that, but I do get headaches all the time, to do with light or something (didn't listen)

Haha SR, no offense, but you are pretty blind without your contacts/glasses. Not completely though. But close
I, myself, have contacts and occasionally I wear my glasses and I can see just fine without them except it annoys me. I can't watch TV or read stuff far away without them.
