Your New Year’s DIY Kick and Your Glasses Aren’t Friends

You’ve made New Year’s resolution to become a DIY expert. Not so fast! Your glasses are going to be a problem.

You’ve got the #DIY bug. You’ve bookmarked dozens of blog pages teaching you how to macramé, decoupage and silk screen. 

Just be aware that it’s not going to be all fun and games. There’s a lot to worry about, from glue strengths, band saw sizes and whether or not the red paint you got for your accent wall is too red. And there’s even more to worry about if you’re attempting these endeavors with glasses.

Here are three reasons your glasses and your desire to do it yourself aren’t chill.

1. Glitter gets everywhere and never goes away

If you’re trying to add a little glam around the house, be careful because you’ll likely end up accidentally bedazzling a lot more than you planned. Namely your frames. Or getting paint on them. Or getting glue on them (and then they get glued to you!) Oof.

2. That varnish takes longer to dry then you might expect

Be verrrrrrrrrry careful around fresh varnish. If you set your glasses on it, they will become part of it.

3. Protective eyewear over glasses is uncomfy

If you’re doing DIY right, you’d better wear some protective eyewear. Hopefully you can find a pair that fits comfortably over your glasses. You def don’t want to be DIY’ing without safety goggles.

Not to say that taking on DIY projects is a bad idea or anything, but you should probably consider ordering takeout and starting a This Old House binge instead. Just saying. You should also consider a vision solution that doesn’t get in the way of your “handiness,” and “creativity.”

Glasses are a hassle during a DIY project, but they’re also a hassle in a variety of other, less crafty activities. Head to and we’ll hook you up with a FREE LASIK consultation. We’ll talk you through some options, schedule your procedure, and answer any questions you might have.
