New year, new glasses.
I've had bad vision since second grade, so glasses and contacts are not a new or foreign thing to me. I haven't gotten new glasses in maybe.... five years? I asked for a new pair for Christmas and my sweet mom agreed!
These are what I ended up choosing. They're from Warby Parker. They have really great fashionable glasses for $95 a pair, including frames and lenses! These are Webb frames in Whiskey Tortoise Matte. Warby Parker has an office in NYC where you can make an appointment to try different frames on, but for those of you who don't live in the NYC area, don't fret! You can have up to five pairs mailed to you to try on. When you decide on the perfect frames you just purchase them online like any other online shopping site. Fill in your prescription and they send your new glasses directly to your house within a week. Amazing!
I'm still getting used to the new prescription, and it certainly feels weird to be able to see so clearly, but it's a good thing to be able to read signs and see your friend's faces, right? :)
