I truly love my contacts and could never justify the cost of buying a new pair of glasses...since my Rx is so bad, the lenses are pricey. We got paid a pretty small amount that was owed for a job from last May. We really thought we would never get it, but when we did...
My thoughtful husband wondered how much it would cost to get me some new glasses. He wanted to use the money for that, which was so sweet. The thought never entered my mind! I was due for an eye exam in March anyway, so I did it!! I queried all my lovely facebook friends for the best and yet cheapest place to get glasses (as I still only intend to wear them "part time" - so I don't want to sink more money into them than I have too). Costco was the resounding answer!! So - for 1 eye exam, 1 pair of glasses (lenses & frames), and 6 pairs of contacts, the grand total was $296.00. Costco really was SOOO cheap by comparison to other places.
So glasses. I really hate glasses. Even though they look cool on some people, I still hate them.
I really love the dark plastic frames look that is trendy these days. In my mind, I envision a free and flowy existence, with a touch of super smart because-I-study-all-the-time. Resembling something like this:
|Penelope Cruz. Don't I wish!|
a) like I had no eyebrows
b) like I have heavy duty uni-brow
c) like I am angry
d) like the old man from Up
|Yup. Dead Ringer.|
|They are as thin as they could make the polycarbonate stuff...and look how thick they are!|
|The first test shot. Can I do this? I'm not very good at this...|
|(on me? no way:-) I got new ones for a reason! Notice how super scratched they are!!!|
