I have to wear eyeglasses or contacts. My eyes just keep getting worse with age….yes, I say that like I’m 87 years old. But, it’s true. My vision is definitely not what it used to be. Someday, I hope to get lasik…though the husband and I disagree on what elective surgery I would have first—ahem, YOU figure out what he thinks would be more fun.
For now, I have to wear prescription glasses. I’m super picky about what mine look like. It takes me forever to decide on frames. I try to pretend like I am going for the sexy librarian look…or at least, that is what I try to convince myself of, anyway. And really, there are so many stylish frames now.
The last time that I needed glasses, it was the day that we were moving from PA to NC. With all the dust that got stirred up by packing, I managed to get something in my eyes and couldn’t put in my contacts without shrieking in pain. Not what you want when you have a ten hour drive ahead of you. I would have just put on my glasses, but unfortunately, one of my boys had broken mine. So, I was stuck going to one of those same-day glasses places- they knew they had me, since I needed the glasses right then. It’s almost a year later and I still cringe, thinking about how much I paid for those glasses. Though, now, I make sure that they are kept well out of reach of my kids!
An option I didn’t have then because I needed the glasses that same day, but one that would save me money in the future is ordering glasses online. You can look at all the different frames that are available- without feeling rushed. Then, enter your prescription and they will be shipped to you. It’s a great way to get a deal on your glasses!
