My eye doctor visit the other day has resulted in glasses. According to my optometrist, it's all a part of being in our 40s.
I've had eye contacts before, but they weren't very successful, and as of last spring, I couldn't stand to wear them because my eyes had changed so much. And now, only glasses will do, as I only have to wear them when I'm working on the computer and reading small print.
It's because of too much time in front of a computer. I've been having trouble reading the words across the bottom of the television screen and having hellacious headaches that only get better when I close my eyes and turn out the lights. My eyes simply hurt.
So yep, I'm gonna be a four eyes. The inner-geek in me opted for the perfectly round John Lennon replica frames from Brooks Brothers Eye Wear. They make me look like a librarian, but that's ok, because the Captain says he likes the idea of taking off my glasses and letting my hair down.
Since I wear my hair like Sarah Palin's quite often, I did try her style of frames, but they didn't look right with my face shape at all, so it's the roundies for me. I like them, I guess. I figure if I'm going to wear glasses, then I want them to be distinctive and have some character.
I'm off to the dentist now. It's supposed to be just a cleaning, but who knows? The way my luck is going lately, I could come back with braces.
Glasses and braces at the same time. Hello, Jan Brady.
