I finally got some new eyeglasses, as seen in the photo above.
I got the prescription in January, but held off getting new spectacles because I find the whole process of choosing them and paying for them and adjusting to them to be FRAUGHT WITH PERIL.
[Yes, I capitalized those words because I’m shouting them.]
However, now that I’ve had these spectacles for a few weeks, I can say IN ALL HONESTY that these are the best eyeglasses I’ve ever had. And that’s saying something considering I’ve worn eyeglasses since I was 5 years old.
What I like about these spectacles, beyond the obvious fact that I am seeing details now, is that they are lightweight but sturdy.
This is new for me.
My last pair of eyeglasses were also rimless, but they were kind of weak and wonky. Taking them off, say to read a magazine whilst drinking a glass of wine, WASN’T EASY TO DO. The bows of those spectacles would bend and fight me as I removed them from my face.
Annoying little wobbly buggers, actually.
[Wordsmith Alert: please note that I just spontaneously wrote a phrase using five words that each contain double letters. Be in awe.]
However, this new pair of spectacles is cooperative, and stylish, and has a coating on the lenses so there’s less glare. Meaning THERE’S MORE CLARITY. And you know I like to see things clearly.
Especially when it comes to pouring myself another glass of wine. Wouldn’t want to spill any of it, now would I?
