My Relationship With Eyeglasses
January 6, 2013 5:18 PM

My eye sight is rather interesting actually, because ever since I was born I have been short sighted on my left eye and long sighted on my right eye. This has meant that I have worn glasses off and on my whole life. I remember when I was a child I even had to wear a patch over the right side of my glasses from time to time, the purpose for that was to try and increase the strength of my short sighted left eye. Something I can appreciate now, but made very hard for my mother to follow through on back then - it was not very fun to look like a pirate with prescription glasses in school…

But because my eyes are so different in strength and because I am long sighted on my right eye I have always been able to see well without glasses. Therefore, as soon as I was old enough to decide on my own whether to wear glasses or not - I stopped to wear them. Even though my eye doctor warned me this could have a negative impact on my eye sight in the future.

And right he was, because a few years ago I noticed that I had to squint more and more so finally I went to see an optician to check up on my eye sight - which had decreased in both eyes. Therefore I now wear eyeglasses again. But not all the time, just when I am on the computer, watch TV and/or read. Though I guess that is most of the time. Lol!

However, wearing glasses does not feel as awful nowadays as it did to me when I was a child. In fact, I think glasses can be a nice accessory. Which is why I also think many people who do not really need glasses buy different cheap glasses, to wear as an accessory with their clothes.

Now I usually buy my glasses at my local optician, but I have noticed that it is very easy to buy glasses online as well, like on for instance. Where I found this very fun feature by the way: also has these great discounts right now:

STOREWIDE OFFER - Take 15% off your entire order amount + FREE shipping (orders over $50). Code: FS15

Take 10% off any order of prescription glasses. Code: Blog10

To use these discounts simply refer to the codes above when placing an order on their website.

So, I have had a long and complicated relationship with glasses throughout my life. But I have now come to the realization that wearing glasses will most likely be a part of the rest of my life, no matter how I feel about it. Which is why I choose to look at my need to wear glasses as a good opportunity to buy a nice accessory with great features. And how can that ever be a bad thing? ;-)
