As mentioned in my post yesterday, I got glasses!
If you are a longtime reader of my blog, dawg, perhaps you caught the entire post about my awkward glasses. Because I used to wear glasses.
From kindergarten until about Grade 8 I wore them all the time.
And then I don’t know what happened, but I guess I got too cool for the glasses and I stopped wearing them. My eyesight isn’t that bad and I have always only needed them for distance, so most of the time I didn’t even notice that I needed them. The only time I noticed that the world was a bit fuzzy was when I would put on someone’s glasses who had a similar prescription to me, and then I would be all “I can’t believe all the things I can see!!!”
So I guess my eyes were just used to straining, which cannot be good. And lately while driving, especially at night, I was starting to have trouble seeing the road signs. I know, bad news, I know. Evan and I have very similar prescriptions (his eyes are just sliiiightly worse than mine) so I would wear his glasses while driving at night, and when I was wearing them I felt invincible! I could see everything!
I liked being able to see so much I decided it was time. I finally went to the eye doctor, and I could barely read the top line…so she confirmed that yes, I need glasses. She said my eyes were youthful and spry, but distance was tricky and I would have failed my driving test. Which is interesting because I didn’t have glasses on when I originally took my driving test and I passed, so apparently my eyes have gotten worse. Possibly from NOT wearing glasses.
Anyway, the point to all of this is, if you need glasses, go check out Zenni Optical. My bestie Lisa had just been telling me that she loved that site and ordered about 10 pairs from there and was impressed by them all. So I checked them out, and they are insanely inexpensive. I got two pairs of glasses, lenses in, taxes, shipping, everything, for $45. And they were on my face within six days. Pretty ridiculous considering glasses are usually hundreds of dollars.
I got the ones I am wearing in the top photo…
And also these ones:
Oh and I got a haircut also… I don’t love that, but it was $15 at First Choice Haircutters, so it is what it is. My hair always looks the same anyway.
The glasses though, I do love, and I love the price even more. I was so impressed with them that I ordered another pair (for $6.95!!!) plus a pair of prescription sunglasses. Even Evan piggybacked on that order and got himself a pair.
So that’s it. I got glasses I really like and they were extremely cheap. Zenni is not giving me anything to write this, but I like to pass on a good deal when I find one. If you need glasses, check them out. If you don’t, sorry to bore you with the glasses post. I am done now.
