what I wore : pink glassesMonday, August 15, 2016
When I was a lot younger my brother's wife, who was his new-ish girlfriend at the time, and I bonded over the fact we hated the color pink. "Ewwww pink!" I was a tomboy through and through. I despised all things "girly". It was so awesome for me to finally find someone else who was anti-pink. Sometime after this I saw her in a pink shirt and felt so betrayed (the same kind of betrayal I felt when my brother admitted he like country music after all the years of us making fun of it together. Haha!) Alas, here I am now in what has become one of my favorite colors. I'm mildly obsessed with this baby pink color and how it looks against my green hair. It's just such a pretty combination... which is why when it came time to choose my first pair of glasses I chose a pink pair!
I guess this is growing up, you have a birthday and the same week learn your vision is basically garbage. Back in 2014 I got prescription reading glasses just to take some strain off my eyes since I'm always on the computer. I kind of thought I'd just be fine for a while after that but I was having trouble even seeing Netflix movie titles from my bed so it was time for another check up. Basically I had trouble reading all the letters, which isn't as much embarrassing as it is frustrating. Why you no work, eyeballs!? My optometrist, who I looooove, showed me what I'd be able to see with glasses and I was blown away. I could not wait to get a pair.
I picked out from Bevy in milky mauve from Classic Specs. One week later aaaand my mind is seriously blown how much of a difference these bad boys make. I honestly had no idea my vision was that bad. I mean, it's not a crazy strong prescription or anything but I can actually browse Netflix from bed now. I can read street signs better, and holy cow everything just *POPS*! It's definitely taking some getting used to wearing them all the time but I'm very curious to see if this will help my headaches. I imagine it will because I apparently had been straining to see just about everything without even realizing it.
So, uh, consider this your reminder - if you haven't been to the optometrist in a while, it might be time to make an appointment!
