I’ve always been an old soul, so I guess it’s only fitting that I now need to wear glasses. I’ve found myself squinting a lot more than usual over the past couple years and after avoiding it for a while, I finally saw an eye doctor. After the exam (I hate those numbing eye drops!), I discovered that my squinty-suspicions were correct; my optometrist prescribed me glasses. I’d like to clarify (not that it matters to anyone but me), that it’s a pretty weak prescription, so I’m not a granny yet - at least not when it comes to my eyes.
A Trick: How To Pick The Right Glasses for You
Choosing a pair of glasses was much harder than I expected. I knew I wanted something minimal and classic; through the process of elimination, I narrowed it down to a few pairs...then I got stuck. The sales associate suggested I take a photo of myself wearing each style and then choose my final selection based on the photos. I thought this seemed silly - especially since I was surrounded by a wall of mirrors - but this was exactly how I made my decision. This silly little trick actually worked and really allowed me to see how the glasses looked on my face.
In the end, I chose a pair of black Raybans and am very happy with my choice. I’m still getting used to wearing them and remembering to bring them with me whenever I leave the house. Perhaps it is my newfound old age wisdom talking, but I know they will eventually feel very normal to me.
