Vision On

Here’s a funny story. Last year I ordered two pairs of glasses online. I always felt a bit wobbly with the new specs, but I thought it was getting used to wearing progressives. Then, because I have hypochondriac tendencies, I thought I had several rare conditions. And then I thought it was macular degeneration. A conversation with a friend who had a similar experience, however, gave me a fourth option: That I had somehow screwed up when ordering the glasses online. By that time, it was too late to try and return them. And because I am a cheap hypochondriac, I sort of suffered through until it was time for another optometrist appointment.

My optometrist confirmed the bad prescription (“That’s on you,” she told me). The good news is that it gave me an excuse to go to Warby Parker to get a new set of frames (the online ones also got all stretched out when I had my Iceland incident, keep sliding down my face and could not be reshaped).

Pictured at the top are my new frames (I’m still waiting for the lenses to be installed. The second photo is of the shop itself, where I had an optician properly fit the new frames. And I also got a free Michah Lexier & VSVS VS book (appropriately titled “Free For the Taking).

And in glasses related news, I also got these cool sunglasses in a surprise bag from Ardenne.
