Some of you may not know this but I wear “eyeglasses”and have been wearing them for years. When I first discovered that I needed a bit of assistance I was in college. I guess all the long days and nights with my head buried in the books didn’t help but guess what, I’m not complaining. I’ve definitely benefited from my studies and have my degree to show for it.
Now that I’m older, I now have a better attitude about having to wear glasses, but it has not always been that way. You see, back in college I was young, hip, and outgoing and oh don’t forget cute. The notion of having to wear prescription eyeglasses was not cool. Well, at least that what I thought. I went thru the phase of wearing contacts and contemplating Lasik. It was a back and forth thing until I found a pair of fashionable eye wear I was comfortable in. For, me they had to be stylish, comfortable, and yes did I say stylish. I don’t know about you ladies but the coke bottle look was just never for me.
I will tell anyone who wears glasses or has a child who suddenly discovers they need glasses to TAKE your time when choosing a frame. These days, there are a tremendous amount of amazing eyes glasses to choose from. Not like back in the day lol. You actually have options now and they come in all sizes, shapes and colors. I’m just glad companies have realized that glasses are a necessary accessory.
I’ve actually owned several pair of prescription eyeglasses over the years and I must say, I think I look great in them all. The one thing I have never owned; however, is a pair of prescription sunglasses. I don’t know why that is, but I never have. Normally when it’s time to head out in the sun, I’d just pop in a pair of contacts and throw on a pair of shades. Well OK! It’s not as easy as it sounds. You see, popping in a pair of contacts for me, can usually take up to 20 minutes, so I don’t know how convenient that is after all. Now that I’m thinking about it a pair of prescribed sun shades would be a whole lot easier. I’m so looking into a pair of prescription sunglasses today. I just love that there are so many fashionable options available today. Eyeglasses could definitely be my favorite accessory, what about you?
