The obvious advantage to wearing glasses is that they help you see much more clearly. Ironically, though, a kid sees the disadvantages of glasses even more clearly. At least this kid did.

When I started to wear glasses in fourth grade, I really didn’t mind the nicknames that went with the prescription. “Specs” really didn’t bother me a bit, but that probably was because none of my friends called me that.
