Iâ€™ve been wearing corrective lenses for almost a decade now.
Generally I wear contacts, and revert to glasses on the weekends.
This year my prescription changed, ever so slightly â€“ my eyesight has actually improved!
My ophthalmologist said I could keep on wearing my old contacts till they run out.
I was at the mall a couple of months back with my mom, she was filling her eyeglass prescription.
There was a â€˜buy one get one freeâ€ promotion on glasses.
My mom got stylish contemporary half frames,
and convinced me to get these. She said it suited my face and got a bunch of other people to agree with her.
I thought they were cute in a chic old fashioned sort of way.
Hereâ€™s mom and me with our respective glasses.
Thankfully theyâ€™re transitions.
These giant plastic frames have grown on me, and Iâ€™ve gotten a compliment or two.
The guy at the coffee shop calls them hipster-chic â€“ I donâ€™t have the heart to tell him that my mom tricked me into getting them.
