Why do folks think this is attractive?

Maybe I am older and am not trend friendly, but really regret having these big glasses in the past because it obscured my face when I was younger.
When I see someone wearing those huge glasses I have the urge to by a fly swatter.

They want others to view them as "I'm just relaxing here and I don't give a rat bottom," yet they put in a lot of efforts to look like that, ironically.

I am really nearsighted and have eyes sensitive to sunlight. I have had very BIG sunglasses and spare glasses. Now they're a trend...so people mistakenly think I'm following some dumb fashion. Big glasses are easier to locate and they protect your eyes better. It is also easier to see out of them.

But now ppl are even wearing big frames without glass. It is like spitting in the faces of those of us who really can't see. ;D How dare they! Anyway, I think they are cute. I've never understood small glasses. How do you see out of them? How do you keep track of them?

Yes they are. Really bad. Yikes.

I have a friend who wears big (not like in that photo) sunglasses and they do look good on her.
