If you saw someone in a supermarket or shop, or just out in public, wearing tinted grey glasses? Not sunglasses. What would you automatically think?

Are you serious? It wouldn't even register on my radar.

Prescription. Must have very light sensitive eye condition.

I'd think they were uv resistant.... grey was offered as a choice when I got mine.

Pikachuwithyourmouthclosed Tue 06-Jun-17 10:44:31

I wouldn't think anything...

male or female?

This is a hilarious OP! Seriously, I am quietly giggling.

99% of people wouldn't notice 1% of people would care

Would not really notice , But would probably think they had a sensitivity to light.

I wouldn't think anything if I even noticed.

That they had photochromatic lenses that had not adjusted to the inside light fully. Or that they had prescription lenses with a tint due to an eye condition that is none of my business. Or that they just fancied tinted glasses.

They had sight problems

Probably wouldn't notice, but if I did I'd assume a sensitivity or eye condition, neither of which are my business.

If I thought further on it at all, I'd probably think it was great that they're actually wearing them, as a family member needs similar lenses but refuses to wear them. sad

I have terrible problems with my nose/sinuses and migraines I always have sunglasses even on this pissing down day they're on my head. I find brightness too much at times so need to tone down outside, I'd probably think nothing of it as I wear big fuck off sunnies rain, wind or shine and if people think it's odd be rest assured no fucks are given.

Could be 100 reasons why and I'd assume none of your business

Don't judge.

You wouldn't be asking this question about seeing someone with their arm in a sling or leg in a cast or someone in a wheelchair.

I have a serious eye condition and have had a number of surgeries. My eyes are very sensitive to light. I have even needed to wear sunglasses indoors in February.

ShelaghTurner Tue 06-Jun-17 10:56:15

I have prescription sunglasses and half the time I forget my other glasses and end up wearing the sunnies round Sainsbury's etc. I feel like Stevie Wonder but it's that or I can't see!

That they had photochromatic lenses that had not adjusted to the inside light fully. Or that they had prescription lenses with a tint due to an eye condition that is none of my business.

If - and note I said if - I thought anything, it would be this. Then I would get on with my day.

Blahblahbollocks96 Tue 06-Jun-17 11:02:50

I would be thinking

'Where have I put the shopping list?'
'Have I locked the bloody car '
'Great I've forgotten the damn plastic bags '
And ' Have I even got my purse?'

So thinking about someone's glasses? Not so much grin

glitterglitters Tue 06-Jun-17 11:04:27

They had a special prescription. There was a boy in my year 7 French class who wore coloured lenses.

WorknameJimEllis Tue 06-Jun-17 11:10:21

Yeah, that's my worry nina

The condition that necessitates the glasses is bad enough, feeling a dick wearing them is the icing on the fucking cake TBH.

MrsJayy Tue 06-Jun-17 11:10:29

It wouldnt evenregister honestly I would be to busy thinking urgh food shopping. Why are you asking one of my Dc wears tinted lenses for erlens she wears them out and about sometimes so she can process stuff

JustAMusing Tue 06-Jun-17 11:13:32

I wear sunglasses most of the time because I'm really sensitive to light and anything brighter than dark and overcast is uncomfortable, bright day is painful. I have the curtains closed in the house in the summer.

So I might assume they had similar but had actually sorted out some from glasses.

JustAMusing Tue 06-Jun-17 11:14:22

some proper glasses

iseenodust Tue 06-Jun-17 11:14:31

I really wouldn't notice. I'm generally quite oblivious unless there is some 'in your face' piercing when I just think that must have hurt.

CoolCarrie Tue 06-Jun-17 11:15:46

That they had some treatment on their eyes, if I noticed at all.
