Yes, we know that “geek chic” is totally in right now, and the stock of the bespectacled girl has never been higher. We like being a trend, sure - but, trust us, it's just not easy to live life with glasses! Here are 23 problems only people who wear spectacles can understand. Fellow “glassy gals”, say aye!

1. Being called Chashmish or “Four Eyes” while growing up.

2. And, therefore, automatically also being classified as “nerd” or “padhaakoo, whether you had a geeky bent or not.
