New Glasses

New Glasses
Check out DeskCam. I got new specs! My optometrist emailed last week to let me know I was due for a checkup, so the Snook and I both went in on Saturday. Turns out my left eye (which was already worse than my right) has gotten a little fuzzier yet. I’m not quite into double digits yet, but it’s getting there. So the Snook and I picked out some super cute, oval-shaped, thin wire frames. Dr. Alex took one look at them and shook his head. “You can’t do it,” he said. “Not with the thickness of your lenses.” CRAP. Curse my myopia! So we had to pick out big ol’ plastic frames. I decided that if I was going to be nerd, then I might as well go full on Poindexter. These look very similar to my old ones; just that they’re brown instead of black and the lenses are slightly larger. Right now I’m in that weird phase where the ground is shifting and I feel like I’m gonna puke.

  1. I always fall off the pavement when I get new glasses, it’s like the curb is suddenly 3ft higher than it used to be.

  2. No worries, nerdy = rock star.

  3. be careful with the whole woozy thing. last time i got new lenses they had been made too strong and i had to get them replaced (i thought i was going crazy for two days!). lol

  4. It’s not that bad. My left lens went up one power, so I’m not experiencing any super weird effects. Just a slight tiredness from my left eye learning to compensate. I wore ’em to work today to force myself to adjust quicker.

  5. I had the same problem at the begining of the year with my new glasses – and it turns out they made them too strong for me too!!!!

  6. Welcome the joys of not being able to get the frames you really, really want. My lenses are +10 on one, and +10.5 on the other. I spent two hours of having my choices vetoed before I found my current glasses.

    I like your new ones!

  7. I’ve been at this stage for a while now, actually. (Left eye’s at +9 now.) I was just hoping that perhaps the science of creating high-refractive index lenses had caught up with me. 🙁
