New glasses

I've been wearing glasses for almost 25 years - ever since I started school in 1989! I couldn't see the board so my sight was tested. My first glasses were mint green and they had Minnie Mouse on the sides! Since then I've had glasses galore, including some real Deirdre Barlow type ones. I tried contact lenses for a while when I was a teenager and since, but find that I can't sit at a screen all day with them in. I have seriously bad eyesight - one of my eyes is -10 and the other isn't far behind. I can't see a foot in front of me without them so my glasses are an absolute necessity.

I guess I was about 20 when I got prescription sunglasses and I couldn't live without them now either as I have incredibly sensitive eyes and need to wear sunglasses for driving. I have to spend a LOT of money on my glasses and I have to pay for the lenses thinning. It's annoying, but I have to do it. Recently, my lenses were so scratched that I needed new glasses.

These are my regular ones, I chose red because they're bright. 

And these are my sunglasses. They're pink and chocolate brown and I liked the 50s vibe to them.


  1. Love Love Love them. Those sunnies are amazing. This also reminds me i'm still waiting on some glasses from Select specs from May!

  2. Very nice! I have to get thinner lenses too, although my eyes aren't as shortsighted as yours. One of my eyes is a lot worse off than the other as well, so it'd look stupid otherwise.

  3. “…I have incredibly sensitive eyes…” – This is one reason a lot of people are thankful for having eyeglasses invented. It really helps to correct and improve any kind of vision problems. Anyhow, I’m glad you found one that looks amazing on you. Score!
