I Spy With My Little Eye

A sort of dizzy world.

So remember two years ago when I got contacts?  Yes well, I neglected to fill you in on how that all panned out. 

It didn't.  Ha!

I lasted exactly two days.  And gave up.  I am just not OK with sticking my finger in my eye.  At all.  I really really want to be OK with it.  OMG it would make walking the dog on rainy or snowy (those two alone comprise about 70% of the weather up here) days.  But well...I'm just a big baby I guess. 

So I wear glasses.  You should know that I do actually like wearing glasses.  I just think it would make certain activities easier if I had the option to also wear contacts on occasion.

But seeing as how I am not there yet, I figured it was high time to order a new pair.  Or two.  Both with the sunglasses lens attachment because I am totally getting wrinkles between my eyebrows from squinting in the sun.  Unacceptable!

The odd thing is that I never ordered new glasses with my new prescription two years ago.  I meant to.  I looked at them multiple times.  It just never happened.  So I have been wearing my old glasses.  And having to squint to see things in the distance.  Which is totally awesome and looks stunning, by the way.

I finally got around to ordering them before I went away and they arrived today.  So cute, in my humble opinion!  Very different from what I've been wearing for years now.  And while the script is only slightly stronger than what I've been wearing, getting used to them tonight has been sort of exhausting.  Giving me a little headache actually.  I'm sure by tomorrow it will all be fine.  But at the moment, my world is taking a smidge of adjusting.

And before you bother, yes I know I need to go get an updated eye exam.  I'm on it for the fall.  But it takes me months to work up the nerve.  I need to plan that out waaaay in advance.  Why, you wonder?  The air puff in the eye!  It seriously takes me months of deep breathing to drag myself, big bucket of trembling nerves and all, into that room.

Also, I read of this company about three years ago on a blog that is no longer. But I wrote the website down with the intention of ordering a few fun specs at a fraction of the price.  I have to say, I am thrilled.  And don't feel the least bit guilty buying two pairs to wear for a few months until I go get a newer prescription.  I highly recommend them!  Seriously- just look at the prices.  Crazy fun, right?!

The air puff is the worst. I always dread that part of the exam, too.

Thank you for sharing this website! I am a glasses girl who can't wear contacts, and I like to have options - I just don't like to spend a lot of money for them!

It took me about ten days to get used poking myself in the eye to put in contacts. Once I got used to it, it didn't bother me. Even still, I have a collection of glasses.

I thought the same thing about poking myself in my eye when the parents started wearing them. When it came time to either wear them or glasses all the time I learned to do it.
I need to find a new pair of glasses mine are about 7 years old.

I'm a glasses gal too. I have contacts, but usually only bother to wear them for special occasions or if I know I'll be getting my picture taken. Should probably have some fun with ordering some new frames!

Thanks for sharing this ~ I'm in need of new glasses and a stronger perscription. Ugh!
