When I was younger, I wanted glasses so badly. I even bought a fake pair in middle school and wore them around my bedroom. They were black, rectangular glasses from the BP section at Nordstrom.
Freshman year of college, I noticed myself getting a lot of headaches while studying. I soon realized how much I was straining my eyes trying to look at the tiny Chinese characters for my class. I went to the eye doctor and they prescribed me reading glasses. But honestly, they didn't really fulfill my lifelong fantasy of glasses; I would only be wearing them when I was on my computer or reading so I would only be wearing them when I was in my bedroom - again. (I am pretty sure there are even some of my closest friends who don't know I own glasses. You can see evidence here.)
Well, seven years later and I decided it was probably time for another eye doctor appointment. And you know what he told me? I shouldn't be wearing my reading glasses anymore. My eyes are back to normal and if I keep wearing them, my eyes will start straining. (I had kind of already diagnosed that, though, when I realized wearing my glasses seem blurry compared to normally vision so I really didn't wear them that often.)
But he also told me I need glasses for long distance like driving, going to the movies, or watching a game. I picked out my beautiful tortoise shell glasses yesterday and I will have to go pick them up in a few days! Good thing is: I am not blind without glasses so there is no need to worry about having to wear them for special events or when I go out with friends.
My life is now complete...
Do you wear glasses? What shapes do you like?
