We're not saying you bring your glasses to the place listed below, you should just take extra precautions.*

1. The Kola Superdeep Borehole - The Kola Superdeep Borehole is one of the deepest man-made holes on Earth, reaching a depth of over 7.5 miles (12 kilometers). It would be practically impossible to recover them due to the depth, extreme conditions, and lack of operational infrastructure.

2. Space - If you wanted to retrieve them, you'd have to consider the microgravity environment, vacuum, and vastness of space... We'd recommend just surrendering your glasses to the cosmos. 

3. Infinity Mirror RoomLosing your glasses in a mirror room would be pretty disorienting and challenging to navigate. Definitely an easier situation to navigate than the Kola Superdeep Borehole... but still not ideal.

4. Sunglasses Shop - It's an awkward one. You risk looking like a thief or picking up the wrong pair. On the one hand, it's the perfect place to find a replacement pair, but that's not a very cost-effective or sustainable solution...

If the scenarios above have riddled you with anxiety, fear not - we have a solution.
