Why Blind People Wear Sunglasses + My Sunglass Collection!

Why Blind People Wear Sunglasses + My Sunglass Collection!

I’m sure some of you have always wondered this and now I’m a real life blind person here to answer the question Hey guys, it’s Molly Burke here again for another video. I don’t know why I said my last name. That sounds very like serious. it’s not that serious of a video. I’m Molly. And I’m here for another video and today, I want to answer a question that I as a blind person get asked all the time and that I know my fellow blind friends Get asked a lot as well, and that is number one why do blind people wear dark sunglasses or number two if you’re blind, why aren’t you wearing dark sunglasses? Now for years and years in movies and you know photos and things wherever they’re Portraying a blind person they always do so with a pair of dark sunglasses And I think the media is really where this stereotype stems from because although yes, there are some blind people who wear dark sunglasses, The vast majority of them don’t or at least do not on a regular basis don’t do it 24/7 don’t do it when they’re indoors or Don’t do it xyz times So for me as a blind person the majority of the time I don’t wear dark sunglasses But sometimes I do and that’s why later on in this video for you fellow Fashionistas I will be showing you guys my relatively expensive sunglass collection But there are a few reasons Why some blind people choose to wear dark sunglasses. The number one reason Why blind people of varying degrees of remaining vision would wear dark sunglasses- for those who don’t know and maybe don’t watch my videos regularly 9 of 10 blind people have some form of remaining vision- in my case It’s light and shadow perception for the most part but everybody is different. Only one out of 10 blind people see absolutely nothing at all and they’re typically born that way or Have had to have their eyeballs removed due to something like ocular cancer. So that’s that side, so People will wear dark sunglasses if they are light sensitive. I’m photophobic; I am very very light-sensitive – there are times when my eyes are so light-sensitive that I actually Can’t control my eyes anymore, and they will force themselves shut, or my eyes will Really increase in shaking and my blinking will become very very rapid because I’m trying to fight to keep my eyes open And I can actually hear Like a vibrating sound in my ear, and I can feel like through my temples This, like, pulling sensation when my photophobia gets very very bad or my light sensitivity becomes very very intense so that’s why for the most part I choose to wear dark sunglasses when I am outdoors or when I’m in an environment that might be very bright or You know a building that has very large windows- that’s letting in a lot of daylight. Daylight tends to be what causes my photophobia the most. I don’t tend to get photophobic from synthetic lights, but some blind people do. So that’s definitely the most common reason why some blind people would choose to wear sunglasses inside because some people do have even more intense light sensitivity than me and would have to wear them even in synthetic lighting indoors. Some other reasons that are Definitely less common, but I have heard of within the blind community Are that people who are blind from birth have never learned to track their eyes for me you can tell that I’m currently looking right at the camera
I’m moving my eyes around as I’m talking like a sighted person usually would and that’s because I lost my vision later on in life for people who are born totally blind They generally don’t learn to eye track or look people in the eyes, and if this is something that they are self conscious about which I don’t think there is any reason to be but if they are they will choose to wear dark sunglasses to conceal so that Nobody can see that they aren’t tracking, or that they are not looking at the person when the person is talking to them Actually, I know that Casey Neistat, the YouTuber- I’m sure you’ve all heard of him But he wears dark sunglasses, in I’m pretty sure like every single one of his videos. I remember in a video he did where he talked about why he does that- one of the reasons Is because a lot of Youtubers use flip around viewfinders, which is slightly off-center to their camera and so in order to Kind of keep themselves in focus and whatnot they look kind of slightly off camera which apparently bugs a lot of viewers Doesn’t affect me because I can’t see it happening, but a lot of viewers get irritated by it And so to conceal the fact that he’s often looking at his viewfinder and not directly at the camera That is like one of the reasons He wears sunglasses So that would be similar to the reason why some blind people choose to wear them? Now the only other reason that I have Personally ever heard and I’m not saying that these three reasons are the only reasons there might be Other reasons that I’m not aware of from my experience growing up in the blind community but the only other experience I’ve heard is the one that for me personally kind of upsets me a little bit, and that’s That people do it to make sighted people feel more comfortable Actually that leads me to another reason that I’ll get to that just popped into my mind which is also kind of a little upsetting but You know I had a woman say to me as I’ve worked in television And she is also blind and worked in television that you know because one of her eyes is Off-Center she has for business or what’s more slang term referred to as a lazy eye So one of her eyes doesn’t point in the same direction as the other which I was born with as well but got corrective surgery for Because she thinks that that’ll make people uncomfortable looking at her face. She’ll wear dark sunglasses to hide it She’s not personally self-conscious about it But she does it so that other people don’t feel uncomfortable. That’s just a reason that I don’t personally like, I know a lot of my blind friends don’t like. If my shaking eyes make you uncomfortable That’s your problem because I’m cool with it. I own it I don’t care that my eyes shake, and it’s not a big deal to me, so I’m not going to hide my eyes Because it upsets other people to look at you know what I mean I don’t think we should have to change who we are because it upsets somebody else I don’t think I should not wear leggings because other people don’t like that I wear leggings. If I like wearing leggings, I’m going to wear leggings. You know what I mean? So to me, It’s kind of that equivalent. I really don’t know very many blind people who wear sunglasses for that reason I’ve actually only heard of that one person saying that, and when she said it around my other blind friends, we were all like- What no don’t do that! So that is the reason I’ve heard I don’t know how common it is; like I said I don’t think it’s very common, but one final reason that that one reminded me of That I know unfortunately I’ve had to do many times, and I’ve had friends have to do Is to get help- to “pass” as a blind person. You guys often hear me say that people always tell me I don’t look blind- I get it in the comments section here on YouTube all the time and A big reason for that is simply that I don’t wear dark sunglasses, and that my eyes “look normal,” other than the fact that they shake. And I have a lot of other blind friends, like my friend Shelby who’s been featured on this channel, who also don’t “look blind” And So in situations where we might be traveling in an airport on our own, or at a restaurant trying to get support, And people aren’t necessarily paying attention or giving us the support that we need, We’ll put dark sunglasses on. And honestly literally 360 degree change- like people come and support, ask if you need help; It’s easier for advocating and it’s unfortunate that it’s that way, and I don’t like continuing to force that stereotype. But in situations if I desperately need to get help, I know that that is something that is going to work, and it’s very frustrating and it just goes to show how the effects of the stereotype, that that really is a big symbol for people and So yeah, it’s something that I’ve used and I know it’s a tool that some of my other friends have utilized But it’s something I wish I didn’t have to do I wish people would just understand. You know, see me with my guide dog, his harness on, me You know maybe doing different things and realize oh, hey Maybe you know maybe she needs help. Or that when I say to people that I’m blind, they would just believe me and not question it Because I shouldn’t have to look a certain way, or do a certain thing in order to be taken seriously And in order to be believed. But all of that aside, now that I’ve explained the reason behind why some blind people wear dark sunglasses, Why the stereotype exists, and why a lot of us actually do not wear dark sunglasses; I’m going to get into the real part of this video- the part that’s my favorite- the sunglass collection. So I Actually, I guess I missed another reason is eye protection that’s like- for me, I’m photophobic So I wear them, but I also want to protect my eyes from the damage of the sun. and so when I was younger my Parents would try to make me wear sunglasses And they were tried by the oakleys which wrapped around so the sun like wouldn’t get into the sights to hurt my eyes that kind of thing, but I Tried my hardest not to wear them because I did have enough remaining vision not wearing dark sunglasses would actually take away Some of the vision that I had left so it’s a very tricky balance, but as I got older and lost more vision and Started getting more into fashion. I started picking up sunglasses more and more and actually wanting to wear that and If you’re a fellow fashion lover you know you have to have a vast variety of sunglasses to go with every outfit so These are not the first ones I have but one of the ones I still have but this is the first that I still have in the collection These are a pair of Ralph Lauren’s. They are bright yellow I don’t even know what shape this would be it’s like a rounded I would say it’s mostly around And I think it has a gradient length and as you can tell it has a sport strap on it and very Trendy and cool. I know I keep the sports strap on it all time because These are now dedicated to like water sports and vacations, so I actually picked these up And there’s like a bunch of sand and those because the only time I wear these is on the Beach going into the ocean water parks like anywhere where I might lose my Sunglasses these the ones I’m willing to lose so that is why the sport band is always on them And I never wear them outside of that and you have clothes up Throughout the video and of me trying them on. And if you see like Fingerprints on the lenses, it’s because I don’t know they’re dirty because I can’t see out of them You’ll notice the majority of my collection is Ray ban Ray bans are my Diehard favorite like I love Ray ban I’m trying to branch out but Ray bans are my go-to. This is the first pair of ray-bans that I saw myself I bought these back in 2009 they are white wayfarers with a gradiated lens and inside these were a limited edition one they have The New York City Subway map which I think is really cute I rarely wear these ones anymore, but they got a lot of love they have some chips I am not delicate with my things when I buy something I buy it to use it so I bought this when I got my first job and I’ve loved them ever since The next one I got were these ones which you can see are in a red case. They were also limited edition I have a things in limited Edition pairs And these ones are also wayfarers they used to be my favorite style these Dan Italian artists I believe do a different splatter paint print on each pair So every pair is unique, and they only had a very limited supply these ones are my darkest Which is good so unfair e very bright days. I would wear this lens the darker ones Of course only if it matched my outfit and then on other days like if it’s not quite as sunny And I don’t need as much coverage. I’ll wear ones like my white ones with a lighter lens Which is another reason I like having a variety of pairs But these ones are just black on the inside and these ones are actually Polarized which I suggest trying to get because it is better for your vision the next ones I have here are ultra polarized and also Ray bans these ones I bought in California, and I actually want to sell these ones. They’re in super good condition because I never wear them I just think as you’ll see on the try-on like they’re just a little too big for my face, but they’re polarized Gold frames brown lenses if you’re interested in buying my old sunglasses, hit me up Because I am open to selling them The next pair I have here are actually the pair I wore in my dove commercial if you’ve seen that give this a thumbs up But yeah, these I bought at the same time as I bought another pair These are around tortoise shells I think they’re polarized pretty certainly, but I really like that the temples on these are very thin They’re very slim very feminine and I just think because I have quite angular face with sharp Features, you know I have high Cheekbones They have a quite defined jaw that the round shape of these glasses kind of balances my face out of it so I really like those and I bought them at the same time as I bought a pair of I think they were like a Copper thin metal copper frame with circular lenses that were metallic Reflective purple which were my absolute favorite because purple is my favorite color and they were such a statement and so fun But recently a photo shoot I lost them I’ll insert a photo of them right here, so you can see them like two days after that thor was taken. They were gone forever lost in Park and Downtown Toronto, so kiss those goodbye and just have to believe that somebody is loving them a lot right now and Just wasn’t meant to be in my life anymore I am actually also lot another pair of Ray-bans recently like two months ago And I never lose sunglasses ever I’m very good with not losing things. I think as a blind person. I have to be extra Organized so I never lose things, but it’s been such a hectic 2017 so I lost another pair. I’ll insert a photo of those ones here They were gold and silver which I love because I always mix metals I love like wearing gold and silver at the same time so they were like they matched my jewelry which I liked But I recently picked up these pair to replace the gold and silver pair that I lost these are Kate spade I love the case although it is very bulky for those who also can see it’s like a bright aqua I believe and inside us is wink wink. Which is cute and again not very good for purses though, and then these are a black like solid black frame with I believe a gradient lens and They are a cat eye shape which I’ve always wanted a cat eye They just have like a little emblem over here If I wanted a cat eye because people always tell me I look like Audrey Hepburn and she read the iconic black cat eyes and these were way cheaper than the Oliver Goldsmith ones that she actually wore so I got those ones instead And then finally these new ones were to replace my purple ones my purple metallic ones So these are the newest my collection. I actually haven’t even worn them yet I don’t you’re probably going to be able to see my lights and my camera But they are an aqua blue reflective lens was kind of like a white matte frame And I’m actually not sure if the arms are gold or silver but if you can see then You can see for yourself. I think maybe gold, but I’m not sure so yeah I’m really excited that these are to replace my old ones I don’t I guess these are like they’re kind of round the flat top at the bar I don’t know I don’t have any other than this kind of style So I’m happy to have them in my collection if you’re wondering. I think pay for all of my own sunglasses by myself I You know have had a job since I was 15 so ever since I was 15 I bought all my own things and I’m proud of being able to do that, so Um you know like I said it’s safe for my eyes to wear sunglasses I need them in certain times because of my photophobia, and I just I’m a fashionista and loved having Sunglasses to match every outfit and different lenses for different brightness, so that’s my collection Let me know if you think I’m missing one in my collection Let me know which your favorite pair on me was and let me know if you want to buy those uh little aviators, hit me up. Thank you guys so much for watching I hope you learned something new in this video or just enjoy seeing my sunglasses if you’re also a Sunglassaholic and I’ll see you in the next video. Bye guys!

  1. While I agree Molly doesn't look blind, that doesn't mean she's faking!!! I do wish people would learn to stop assuming blind people can't look normal, especially when their doing something they are especially comfortable with like for Molly filming blogs/videos.

  2. I barely see your eyes shake .So t doesn’t really bother me.My friend Pj she can make her eyes shake .😁

  3. you’re so right about the round glasses complimenting your face shape – you look sooo good in all the round sunglasses (the tortoiseshell frames, the purple ones you lost, and the round-ish aqua ones you haven’t worn yet) 😍😍😍

  4. OMG YOU SAID THAT JIPSEE PASSED ON MAY 22? I feel so sad!! It passed on my birthday (not my real year but… oh well!)

  5. I love your last 2 pairs of sunglasses! Off your collection, I think those 2 do your facial features best!

  6. I've recently been diagnosed as entering stage 3 macular degeneration, and Google suggested your channel. One of those really creepy AI things that is actually really helpful.

    Anyway, the degeneration is a new thing, but I've had lots of trouble with stereoscopic vision on and off for my entire life. I've used sunglasses to protect my eyes in the event of getting poked when I'm in visually busy or new environments – especially when I had very young children.

    Anyway, thank God for you. Thank you for cheering me up.

  7. A girl in my grade can see really bright colors but nothing else and she has a cane and wears dark 👓 and it helps her see colors and outlines of people and she remembers voices and can match them to a person

  8. Blind here and my eyes don't look normal due to nearly 300 surgeries. When I was a teen I went through an admittedly short phase where I hated my eyes because of how they make me look. I didn't wear sunglasses very much, but I did a bit purely for that reason. I found that it made me too uncomfortable not being able to use my vision nearly as well though so I stopped relatively quickly. Now I've lost so much vision that wearing sunglasses wouldn't help me see any better in bright light. I had a pair of wraparound Air Force shades my ex fiance picked up from the recruiter and I wore those just because I liked the look lol.

  9. my nana, who has RP also, nearly never wears dark sunglasses. She will on occasion outside but most of the time she wears her normal glasses

  10. When I Nodesed your eyes shake I thought wow that’s so cool and your eyes are beautiful I personally love your eyes

  11. Hi, I am not trying to be disrespectful but I have a question how can you co-ordinate outfits as a blind person?

  12. So I saw the dove commercial like 2 years ago before I started watching you and then I saw it again and you were like “hi I’m Molly Burke” and I was like “omg! This is Molly Burke!” Because that commercial was so inspirational to me!

  13. The last reason got me thinking, maybe you have to wear dark sunglasses if you're blind to get help and for people to know that you can't see, because if you're not, imagine someone walking up to you and asking if your blind, and your not, some people taking as offense , for some reason, so maybe that's why.

  14. youre eyes are shaking ALOT more than normal in this video, cause normally i cant really see it

  15. I’m in no way blind, or have a condition that may cause me to be blind (that I know of) however, I believe I am photophobic as well. There have been numerous times I’m driving, and I can’t control my eyes to stay open. I have to close one eye, and drive with one open to pull over somewhere to find my sunglasses or wait until it gets cloudy or try and get home as soon as possible. I’m not sure why I experience it, but it’s extremely uncomfortable. I hope I’m not being offensive by saying that, if so I am deeply sorry. Love you and your vids!

  16. I understand the sunglasses stereotype in public to get help, but when you think about it…. if someone sees you in public, you don’t look blind so if you put sunglasses on then you look blind so people will help you

  17. I don’t think that dark sunglasses are for just blind people if I saw someone with a a service dog and said they were blind I would believe them and you

  18. Okay Miss Burke I thank you for this video but I need a bit more as a newly Blind person, Yep I won the door prize on Friday July 13th 2018m Yep Dr. said well your sight is mostly gone and it ain't coming back Have a nice day. ( I am still in what I have dubbed the keep laughing so your mind doesn't know it really has a problem phase ). So I'm in a store the next day I riding the wheelie carts as my hips left the race years ago and my spinal cord has a big Latin named disease even my Dr. doesn't try to say, basicly the fluid around my spine is leaking. Anyway A young kid jumped across in front of the cart and I almost hit him Well after telling him if he only knew just how Blind I was he would think twice about doing it again. And it was then that it hit me that he had no way of knowing about my condition and no one else I didn't know or have told could tell ether. I don't wear shades I don't have a furry friend of a professional kind, I haven't gotten a fancy new walking or should I say tapping stick just yet so how do I let them know. I am thinking I will make several t-shirts with my Field of vision results in a graphic form or something like that. Any advice will be good. thanks again for your videos.

  19. I dated someone who's eyes could not focus and they wore glasses that blocked out their vision and peripheral vision because it made them motion sick when they walked or were in a car.

  20. I've only known Molly through a few videos so far, but I absolutely adore her already. This is a very informative video, and I'm grateful for her input 🙂

    I think most movies depict blind people as wearing dark sunglasses because it's incredibly difficult for sighted people to imitate the eye shaking or eye drift. I hope it isn't just so the audience is "more comfortable".

  21. 12:52 OMG THAT WAS YOU!?!?!? that's really cool now remembering the commercial it was you 😂

  22. I think you can't blame people for not helping you, when they just don't realize, that you are blind. If you ask them for help, well, they should help, of course, but maybe they just can't see from your action and your dog, that you are blind, maybe they just overlook it

  23. I honestly cannot see your eyes shaking, you mention it often but I just do not notice. I can forget you are blind because you look at the camera just like a sighted person, I lose track of the fact you cannot see.

  24. The blind barista at the coffee shop I visit has no dog (at least in the coffee shop) and does not wear dark glasses. You can easily see he is blind, the way he picks out items and such. I always chat with him if there is no queue.

  25. I'm also blind. I wear sunglasses almost everywhere I go, because not only am I really light sensitive and epilepsy, but I am really subconscious about how my eyes look. before I needed the cane I would always get comments about how creepy looking they are and what odd color my eyes are.
    but I find it interesting that you said that you have to put on sunglasses so people believed you because with me I have been told to take them off to prove I can't see. and have had some people get really aggressive about it.

  26. Hi I have glaucoma(open angle) since Oct. 2013 also have a lazyeye too, ran across your video looking at best color for indoors, I have a white can but know seeing eye dog yet, good video.

  27. I used to think that all blind people had grey eyes (maybe due to certain types of blindness) so I thought they put on the glasses b/c it looked gross so they didn't wanna gross people out

  28. I have a connective tissues disorder that is considered an “invisible disability” and I always feel like I have to prove my disability or do things to “pass” in order to get the help I need. I understand your frustration.

  29. Though I have most of my sight, one of my eyes has very bad/ dark vision and can not stay in line with my other eye. (Lazy eye). I just wanted to say that I wear sunglasses for the same reason as the other women you know. People are very uncomfortable and stare which makes me uncomfortable. I also always have people ask "are you looking at me" weather I am or am not looking at them. To save myself from answering this question I wear sunglasses very frequently.

  30. I'm sighted, but I have a terribly strong prescription in my glasses. I also have a slight strabismus (it was much worse as a kid, but war almost entirely corrected by patching) and I'm often photophobic. I feel Molly's struggles even as a sighted person

  31. I'm sighted but I do have a lazy eye and it doesn't affect my sight what so ever I have 20/20 vision and me and my friends all think its actually kind of cool. Sometimes I'll look into the mirror and do this weird thing with my eyes where I switch the eye that's looking to the side (Idk how it works but it does I just close the eye that's normally "lazy"

  32. I wear sunglasses inside most times, mostly because I like people watching or just staring off into space without people bothering me. :))

  33. I absolutely love that you come out and talk about this stuff for people who want to know more about being blind and how difficult it actually is. By the way I really love your videos and other content, keep it up!💕💕

  34. Molly I love you so much! You are such an inspiration! I suck at making positive comments so just pretend I'm saying all the nice things I wish I could. 💜💛💚💙❤💖

  35. My mom, a sighted woman, has recently been obsessed with sunglasses. She has like 7 pair in her car. I have no idea how many she has at this point but like how many pair do you need!!!

  36. I don’t even notice that you’re eyes shake!!! But in this video I felt like they were shaking more then usual. Like I can barley tell but I mean like it doesn’t bother me that you’re eyes shake! If fact it’s actually kinda cool that they shake!

  37. I always thought some blind people wear sunglasses was because some blind people's pupils look cloudy, so they just wore sunglasses.

  38. the colors in this video are so gorgeously coordinated and i feel like they match your aesthetic so well. love your videos! so happy that i found you via Shane — love your content!! you are inspiring as hell & also fuckin gorgeous!! also so kind honestly i could go on and on about the good qualities you have but we would be here all day. you're killin it Molly!

  39. If your eyes makes someone else uncomfortable, then they should leave or get over it, I personally think it is cool how you can just ignore people like you do, you are awesome Molly!

  40. I don't get it. How is she looking at the camera if she's blind? Also, how is she able to use electronics if she's blind? Just curious 🤔

  41. I never ended up associating blindness with sunglasses… I don’t really know why because I don’t know anyone that’s blind, but the few occasions I saw someone who was actually blind I never saw sunglasses. I always associated the cane or a dog with a harness… I also had the very unique opportunity to learn a little bit of Braille at a church group I attended when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I always thought it was the coolest thing that there were people who could read with their fingers!

  42. I don’t get why people need the dark sunglasses to believe that she is blind.

    I mean seriously you think she is going to buy a $40,000 dog for nothing and if she has a cane. Come on, people seriously need to get smarter.

  43. “On bright days is where these, but only if they match my outfit”
    Me: yess mollyyy
    Molly has such an amazing style 💞

  44. I'm not blind but I was born with Strabismus and had it corrected as a baby. The drs said that around 16 the surgery would likely reverse itself. It did… so I would cover one eye with my hair, wear dark glasses, or "flutter" my eyes around so that people wouldn't notice as much. It was mostly just to make my life easier and to avoid the questions and name calling that lasted till I was 24 when I got my eyes corrected again. Fun fact tho=) although I was born without any depth perception I can choose which eye I want to look out of=)

  45. hi molly! my cousin has been blind since birth and he is turning 5 soon. i love him to death because i take care of him so much, i want him to grow up feeling good about himself. as he grows up, is there any tips that i should know to help him out?

  46. Your awesome Molly I love how you have learned how do do all the daily things like make a cup of tea. You do you Molly your amazing

  47. One thing I've realized through watching your videos is how important it is for sighted people (and anyone without a specific disability) to not hyperbolize disability. For example, in situations where I'm looking for something and don't see it and then someone tells me its right in front of my face its easy to say "oh sorry I'm literally blind" or something to that extent. Its something I've both done and witnessed a lot and I think it makes it that much harder for you or anyone who is blind or deaf or has any kind of disability to get the information across that they really are blind and need assistance. I don't think its something that abled people think about but it definitely happens a lot and I think it would happen much less if more people were exposed to blindness. So thank you for being such a big presence in the world and sharing your life with so many people, I think it really helps the blind community by making sighted people more aware of disability and how our behavior affects people.

  48. Love all your videos Molly. One question I'd love the answer to is do you ever write lists in braille to help you remember things or make a note on your phone with your voice like when you go to the store or talking about things in a video? I feel like people write lists often to remember things and I've never thought about if blind people do too!

  49. do people who go blind later in life have to re-learn eye-tracking/aligning? or is it something that once you learned it, you‘ll never unlearn it? 💓🤔

  50. That's very interesting. When this video started, I thought you were going to say one of the reasons you don't wear dark glasses is because you perceive light and darkness, and glasses would dull your light perception, bringing you closer to complete blindness.

  51. Not supporting (or not not supporting either I suppose), but to discuss it; the getting more help when you wear dark sunglasses. I feel like, at least for me, even with the cue of the guide dog or such, I would be so worried about asking a sighted person if they're blind or otherwise assuming a condition wrongly, and trying to help someone that DOESN'T need help, that I won't offer to help someone who may need help.
    I mean you'd think that a guide dog or cane would be enough, but dark sunglasses without other cues wouldn't be enough either, so I guess it's just having multiple hints that does it.

    Saying this actually makes me realize how terrible an excuse all this is, but it's an explanation, as I know that I will do this.

  52. Having to pass for having a disability is the WORST. I have a chronic leg pain issue and nobody believes me unless I get a cane out or wear my braces

  53. I honestly didn't notice your eyes shook till you pointed it out. I just wondered what you could "see" cause was wondering how you seem able to track with your eyes so well. I honestly just assumed blind people who did wear sunglasses wore them to protect their eyes from sunlight and etc. I actually get regulars at my job that are at different levels and never know where the li e is with my assistance.

    Like, i want to help them pulling out chair or helping them around the more convoluted paths in our retail section. Like i don't want to seem like belittling or anything. Just help if I can like with all my guest.

    Our servers do make sure to make presence known by moving s chair, menue, or speaking up in softer voice.

    Sorry for chapter book 😅 will shhhh now

  54. Mani the reason blind people wear sunglasses is because their eyes are sometimes very deformed and they look very strange to say to people. It’s not the reason you gave. The real truth of the matter is set their eyes are sometimes completely white and it disturbs sighted world that’s really why they were sunglasses.

  55. my girlfriend is blind although she has some remaining vision it is not much. She doesn't use her cane that much because she has a job where that would hinder her and as i said she can see somewhat. i hate it when she has to explain that yes she is blind she cant see small print and reading is difficult and menus at restaurants usually have small print she has to either ask for help or have someone with her that can see, its usually me though. I wish she didn't have to justify it it pisses me off

  56. This is kind of related to the third reason that she gave for why blind peoplewe're dark sunglasses but some people wear dark sunglasses because when they're blind their eyes get cloudy and they don't feel comfortable with other people seeing that their eyes are cloudy

  58. I just think it's stupid that for people to believe someone is blind, they need to wear sunglasses. like, what the heck? if someone was pretending to be blind they could put on sunglasses and people would believe them, so there really isn't a point to that stereotype.
