You may be surprised when I tell you that your glasses are one of the best survival tools at your disposal. Your glasses will help you in many ways if you ever find yourself stuck in a survival situation.
First of all, your glasses will help you with your vision. In certain situations, having a better vision becomes very difficult. For example, if you are stuck on a mountain covered with snow, the reflection of sunlight off the snow will make it very difficult for you to see anything. Similarly, if you are stuck in an ocean, the reflection of sunlight off the water will also make you almost blind.
A pair of sunglasses is what you need in these situations. Glasses will also provide you protection against certain elements. For example, they can keep your eyes safe from dust and sand particles, if you are in a desert.
One of the top priorities in any survival situation is making a fire. If you have your glasses with you in a survival situation, making a fire will not be a big problem.
Fire with Glasses
That lense in your glasses will turn the suns rays into powerful fire starters. Like a Fresnel lens, the sun will be magnified and will catch tinder on fire. That is very important in the full scope of survival. We all need fire in survival and having as many means of making it as possible is very important.
Your eyes are precious and its exponential in survival. Not only do glasses affect your vision but they protect your eyes. You are going to be around fire, cutting tools and dealing with debris from disasters. Your eyes will need to be protected. Glasses can do that for you.
