Do you feel that having more than one pair of glasses is excessive or unnecessary? Perhaps you believe that since you have only one pair of eyes, you should only need one pair of glasses.
But think about this: Do you own just one pair of shoes? I don’t know of anyone that wears the same pair of shoes everyday for all occasions or activities. The dress shoes you wear to the office would be a handicap on the volleyball court, uncomfortable on the beach and simply dangerous in the snow and ice of winter.
Just as you need the appropriate shoes depending on your activity, you need glasses designed to give you optimal vision for different activities. Your work week may call for long hours at a computer or you may need safety glasses to protect your eyes from harm. Your leisure activities could require impact resistant lenses or lenses to protect your eyes from the sun and UV rays. If you spend time doing very close visual tasks or participate in sports such as golf which demand good distance vision as well as the ability to see that scorecard you could also benefit from specialized lenses. And when it’s time to dress up and go out it’s fun to have a pair of glasses that complete the look.
Another very good reason to have a least a second pair of glasses: accidents happen. Could you go about your daily routine if you did not have your glasses? If not, what would you do if you lost or broke your glasses? Having a back-up pair could mean the difference between a comfortable wait while your first pair is repaired or replaced or having to become completely dependent on someone else until you can replace your glasses.
The truth is, there are many aspects to your life and personality. And to complement your multi-dimensional lifestyle, you need more than one pair of eyeglasses.
