hey four-eyes, I’m talking to YOU!

yeah, I’ve been a little four-eyes since I was the ripe old age of 7, and Mr. D has been wearing glasses since he was 12 or 13. this obviously means that we have plenty of scary pictures like this of our childhood floating around.

we certainly have hope that someday we will be able to afford lasik, but until then we are blind without contacts or glasses.

there are a few things that drive me batty about glasses, probably the most annoying of which being that I can’t just go directly from wearing them into contacts without having a dizzy indent in my nose from where the glasses used to be!!! I have to plan my day thinking how long before we’re going somewhere that I will need to put in my contacts if I don’t want to wear my glasses. LAME.

another thing that is frustrating is trying to figure out which eyeglasses actually look good on me, let alone staying remotely in style. (unfortunately that ship has sailed and I’m not that fond of swimming) but I always love when I can try glasses on virtually!

I was recently introduced to GlassesUSA.com and they have one of the better systems I’ve seen; it’s called the Virtual Mirror. I decided to help Mr. D try out some glasses. he doesn’t know about it until this is posted, so I’m sure he’ll be super impressed with my choices for him, LOL :)

    Get glasses that don’t have the little nose thingies (don’t know the proper name) and you don’t have to worry about the marks on your nose, plus they are a lot comfier to wear! :) I’ve been wearing glasses for four years, and just recently got a pair that DOES have those nose thingies and I do not like wearing that pair! I love my completely plastic glasses! :)

      I am very sad to report that I have plastic glasses and they just dig into my nose and leave a line across the top :( I do prefer them to the ones with the nose pieces, though!

    OMG!!!! LOLOL!! I can TOTALLY relate! I’ve worn glasses since I was 6 and even the “thin version” of mine are sick thick! It’s BAD! I had NO money when we got married so i hadn’t gotten new frames for YEARS. They were SO bad! I would put them on before we would go to bed and J would bust out his best impression of the Harry Potter voice and say something like “Oh!! It’s Harry Potter!!” Well you had to hear his ridiculous voice! I’ll make him do it for you when you guys visit! LOL!
