Can you guess what it is…?
Yep, this year I’ve had to get glasses for the first time.
Two years ago I had my eyes tested, and while I had issues and was told I could benefit from glasses, I chose to not get them.
Because I didn’t want glasses at 43 and wanted to wait. Besides, my eyes weren’t that bad.
Within six months other issues were popping up, and a year and a half later, I had to bite the bullet and get them.
Turns out, I had a stye on my left eye, and astigmatism in my right. Which means, my left eyeball is as close to perfect as could be and my right is a different shape altogether.
So, I now have bifocals.
Yep, bifocals. Because my long distance is excellent, and my short distance is shit.
I went for the cheapest frames, because seriously, why waste money on plastic, and had anti-glare added to the blues. The pinks come with me in my handbag and the blues are for working on the pc, which, isn’t all that bad, but the doctor did say to use them when my eyes became tired, so I don’t have to wear them all the time.
Ugh, I feel so freakin old!
