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.

@BelleStarr I was going to buy another pair anyway. Still, I´ll take them to the place where they make lenses. Maybe they can fix them to have as second pair.

They could have waited for 15 days. I went to the doctor, have a new prescription, but did not think it was so urgent so I did not do it. (Bad works in Spanish directed to myself)

I recently broke my glasses too. I accidentally slept on it. Getting a new one done was not an easy task as I have been busy recently

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 don´t think it is worth it to have eye surgery as I only wear them to watch TV or to break them

@marguicha Yeah, if you don't have a condition like mine then it is not worth the investment. Mine is really progressing, there was a time that my eye grade is 525-575. Pretty strong!

My friend went to put on a shoe, sat down on the glasses he had placed on the chair and I had to take him to get new glasses. I try to be careful, but things still happen from time to time, like I drop a glass or a dish.

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.

I am so sorry that this happened to you. I am careless sometimes, because I do things hurriedly. I am glad you were able to find the older pair so that you have something to carry you over.
