This story is about my mum……recently she was driving through town looking for a friends address. After driving around for a while with no luck, she stopped at the side of the road to ask a man who was tending his garden. When she approached, the man looked at her with a very strange quizzical look on his face. He gave her directions anyway and she returned to her car. Feeling self conscious due to the mans reaction, she looked in the mirror to discover that one lens of her dark glasses was missing. She looked completely ridiculous! I couldn’t understand how she did not know that it was missing as she was looking through it but try it yourself…..your eyes don’t notice the difference. It really is quite a strange phenomenon. She looked like she should of been locked up!!

  • Lol, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall. I have experienced this and wondered why something felt odd. Yes it’s true it is a strange phenomena.


  • Oh dear. Maybe she should have told him it was the latest fashion.


  • I wear contact lens and the same funny sight happens when you lose one. Only bonus is that no one can tell
