I broke my eyeglasses.

One day before my holidays and I broke my glasses Stupid me, I got out of bed in a hurry to answer the phone, sat on the glasses and heard an ominous click. Bye lenses! Fortunatly last week I had found the glasses I had before this pair. They are not that bad. And as soon as I come back, I will go with the new prescription to have made the new glasses I had postponed. Still, I an angry for being so careless. And there will be one more thing to do as soon as I come back and one more thing that will cost me extra money. Do things like that happen to you or are you always careful this your things?

I put my glasses inside my shoe in my bag that I carry to the YMCA and when I got dressed they were all twisted. I have no idea how it happened but they are titanium so I brought them to the office and they twisted them back into shape.

I also used to wear prescription glasses as I was near-sighted. I already lost count how many glasses I have broken because of my clumsiness, not to mention those I have lost because I left them. Then I had Lasik and it was really a very good investment. I still wear sunglasses though, and I make sure that I do not bring or use my more expensive ones when I will be doing lot of work outdoors. I fear these will suffer the same fate as my glasses.

I always have a back up. I have a cataract in my left eye so do some work online I have to have my reading glasses available. I try to use them sparingly and utilize my eyes hoping to keep the other eye strong. Glad you found the other glasses.

I am sorry to hear that. I have one pair of backup glasses in case the current one will be broken. Usually my glasses will be kept in the glass case so that there will be a good protection for it. But sometimes the accidents will happen.

I'm so sorry you broke your glasses that way. I'm sure you were ticked off at yourself! Thank goodness you have that old pair. I lost a brand new pair of sunglasses, box and all, in a hotel a few years ago. It still kills me to this day! I'm sure the housekeeper looks cool in her new shades.
