See

Ralph had been coming to Exchange Island for well over forty years now, but nothing like this had ever happened before. Sure, he had been swapped with women before; that was nothing new. But it was very strange that he still needed his glasses to see properly. After landing on the resort, he found his vision blurry. He quickly found the woman he swapped with and asked if she had any vision problems of her own. She frowned, saying she did not, and gave Ralph his glasses. Sure enough, with his own glasses on, he could see quite clearly. Though it was a bit of a pain, since they didn’t quite fit his borrowed face, so he kept having to push them back on.

Still, he wondered why he needed them at all. He had never needed to use his own glasses while in someone else’s body on Exchange Island before. Those sorts of physical traits generally stayed with a person’s body, not swap with their minds. He wondered if something had gone wrong this time...if for some reason the swap wasn’t quite complete. And, worse still, if there would be any problems swapping back as a result. He certainly wouldn’t mind staying in this body, but the woman he swapped with probably wouldn’t want to remain a 60 year old man any longer than she had to...
