Are you nearsighted? Do you lose your glasses more times a day than you’d like to admit? Do you need help finding said glasses? Great, that’s why we’re here.

First things first: Is your cell phone nearby? (That was a trick question: Of course, it is.) Now open your phone’s camera like you’re taking a picture of what’s in front of you. What you’re seeing should be pretty clear, regardless of whether or not you’re wearing your glasses.

Now, time to search for those missing glasses. Keep your camera open, scan your surroundings through your phone screen and—boom! There they are. This works because, unless your lens is scratched, your phone camera displays a clear and crisp picture of whatever you’re looking at. 

Time to swear you’ll never lose them again. (You will.) We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—thank God for smartphones.
