Happy Glasses

As mentioned in my post yesterday, I got glasses!

Oh hey there

If you are a longtime reader of my blog, dawg, perhaps you caught the entire post about my awkward glasses. Because I used to wear glasses.

and I looked real good in them.

From kindergarten until about Grade 8 I wore them all the time.

And then I don’t know what happened, but I guess I got too cool for the glasses and I stopped wearing them. My eyesight isn’t that bad and I have always only needed them for distance, so most of the time I didn’t even notice that I needed them. The only time I noticed that the world was a bit fuzzy was when I would put on someone’s glasses who had a similar prescription to me, and then I would be all “I can’t believe all the things I can see!!!”

So I guess my eyes were just used to straining, which cannot be good. And lately while driving, especially at night, I was starting to have trouble seeing the road signs. I know, bad news, I know. Evan and I have very similar prescriptions (his eyes are just sliiiightly worse than mine) so I would wear his glasses while driving at night, and when I was wearing them I felt invincible! I could see everything!

I liked being able to see so much I decided it was time. I finally went to the eye doctor, and I could barely read the top line…so she confirmed that yes, I need glasses. She said my eyes were youthful and spry, but distance was tricky and I would have failed my driving test. Which is interesting because I didn’t have glasses on when I originally took my driving test and I passed, so apparently my eyes have gotten worse. Possibly from NOT wearing glasses.

Anyway, the point to all of this is, if you need glasses, go check out Zenni Optical. My bestie Lisa had just been telling me that she loved that site and ordered about 10 pairs from there and was impressed by them all. So I checked them out, and they are insanely inexpensive. I got two pairs of glasses, lenses in, taxes, shipping, everything, for $45. And they were on my face within six days. Pretty ridiculous considering glasses are usually hundreds of dollars.

I got the ones I am wearing in the top photo…

They don’t actually say Zenni on the arms

And also these ones:

Oh and I got a haircut also… I don’t love that, but it was $15 at First Choice Haircutters, so it is what it is. My hair always looks the same anyway.

The glasses though, I do love, and I love the price even more. I was so impressed with them that I ordered another pair (for $6.95!!!)  plus a pair of prescription sunglasses. Even Evan piggybacked on that order and got himself a pair.

So that’s it. I got glasses I really like and they were extremely cheap. Zenni is not giving me anything to write this, but I like to pass on a good deal when I find one. If you need glasses, check them out. If you don’t, sorry to bore you with the glasses post. I am done now.

  1. Man those are some cheap glasses! I wish I had known that before I dropped a fortune on mine. But I only wear mine at the office (they are for up close so I only need them for my computer), so they should last me ages. They look a lot like your first ones! Great minds think alike 😉

  2. I think your hair is cute! I got mine chopped more yesterday. It’s so short now it’s weird.
    That’s an awesome deal for glasses. How did you know your prescription to be able to order them? I have glasses that I wear when driving at night usually but that’s about it.

  3. Yeahhhh Zenni! I, for one, am ECSTATIC that you finally got yourself some peepers. I feel like you are much safer. Also, liking the haircut! I’ve decided to do bangs…so we will see how that goes..

  4. Lookin’ good. Is your next post going to be a story on the First Choice haircut? Heh. I was on that site last night and I think I will grab a pair or two as well. I hit 40 and needed glasses myself 🙁

    • Haha. Not much of a story… Well actually, she cut it just a little too short and then she sprayed some kind of product to apparently “bring out the gold” in my hair, but my hair is very fine and does not like products at all, so it was all stringy and greasy and stuck in clumps and looked disgusting. But after I washed it all was well, and for $15 not too shabby at all. The end.

      And DO IT. They have a sale right now!

  5. Thanks for the tip on Zenni Optical! I was needing new glasses. And I am super blind and they only charged $19.95 to make the lenses thinner. I usually pay waaay more than that.

  6. Umm, your haircut is fab (at least in this photo)!

  7. YOU LOOK AWESOME IN GLASSES.

    I am a total glasses whore. You can get free pairs from coastal.com and firmoo.com, fyi.

  8. Love your new glasses and sassy haircut!

  9. You are so beautifull…

  10. I wish you had posted what your prescription was, but if you weren’t able to see the eye chart any better than that it sounds like you must be wearing glasses full time now. Once you get used to them glasses aren’t really so bad. In fact by now I doubt you even realize that your wearing them anymore. Yes Zenni is a great source for glasses I always recommend them to people.
