Surely, I did not know what happened to my reading glasses. I wore it the whole day when reading. I wore it reading the ingredients, the instructions and the prices of the things I have bought in 4 shops. I swear that my reading glasses was hanging on my necklace on my neck when my son collected me from the last shop I went to. I was also using it at home after shopping, reading the instruction of the powerbank that I have bought this afternoon. Half an hour later, I went food shopping with my hubby in the nearby supermarket. I wanted to read the instruction of the sunscreen I wanted to buy for my vacation but my reading glasses is nowhere to be found. I felt helpless. I couldn´t read the prices of the food. My hubby had to help me. Has it happened to you? I am still looking for my reading glasses. Thankfully I have an extra reading glasses with lights which I have not used for almost 2 years. Now I have a headache. The dioptre number is stronger that the one I am looking for. Besides that, both eyes has different dioptre. I have to go to Fielman (the shop for eyeglasses). I hope they can make me a new one and make it ready for me before I fly home. Have you lost something today?

I know exactly where your reading glasses are. They ran away with my wallet.

@thelme55 I always suspected my wallet had a secret life. It has disappeared before. I see it clearly now. I should have known.

I keep three pair of reading glasses in my handbag, just in case. I have pairs in every room of the house. My husband can read without his if the lighting is bright. I hope you find them. I haven't lost anything in a long time.

I think I have to buy some more pairs just in case. My son found my reading glasses in his car where I used to sit. I am glad it's not really gone.

I have three extra reading glasses because I am completely lost without them. Have you checked inside the car? May be the have fallen there while you were going to the supermarket.

Yes, my son told me a few hours ago that my reading glasses is in his car. I think it felt down when I went out of the car. He will bring me then after his work. Thanks @LadyDuck

I oftentimes misplace my eyeglasses and I hate it because I can't certainly do any reading or computer job without reading glasses this is why I decided to have spare glasses that I use instead of wasting time looking for the missing one. At any rate, I never really lost one, I just misplaced them and then found later.

Maybe it slipped from the necklace that holds it and the necklace slipped without you knowing it . Well, reading glasses are the ones most sought for by adults wearing them . I always do that that's why , i have a reading glasses at home by my lampshade table beside my part of the bed . And i also have one at my office drawer and one on my bag . At least if one gets lost , i have a spare . So far , none is lost these past months .

I usually know where I put my glasses, and I have several pairs of cheap reading glasses. I had more problems with my keys, and I thought that it would be a good idea to buy a whistle key finder to put on my key rings. This gadget works well most of the time, and I have just to whistle here and there to find my keys in the house, but when the keys are in my pocket it whistles when I sit down, whistles when I stand up, whistles when I climb a stair, etc.

Lol There is no ending of whistling then. You don't even have to put on the music.. I think that is a good idea of a key finder. I might buy one when I see one @topffer

@thelme55 I had one in the past that was working by a clap on the hand. It was less sensible than this one and was not starting for no reason. It makes not a lot of noise but it is annoying.

I never lose my reading glasses but I broke it thrice already. Now I have four reading glasses, one in my bag, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. For that I wouldn't miss my reading glasses.

I haven't lost anything today but from time to time I do. It is awful being without glasses when you rely on them so much.
