|« Merry Christmas to All Our Blog Buddies||I Dread Getting New Glasses »|
Ok, gonna try this post again. The blog Gods were mad and I got myself a small site crash and lost the post. If you have commented on this thread before and don’t see it now, try again.
I went to my wonderful eye appointment, got the great news that I would indeed need new glasses.
If you read my previouse post I Dread Getting New Glasses, you will understand my dilemma about picking out new frames. I also said that I had a plan well here it is in action!
Since I am old and blind, I am getting 2 new pairs of eye glasses. One set will just be for reading up close and the other pair for wearing out and about when I will need to see in the distance. I have always had just 1 pair so, I just get some sensible frames that will fit every occasion. This time I have already picked out my new Fun frames (see the picture to the left) that I will use just when I am at home looking at a computer screen for hours a day.
Here is were the technology part comes in (that I mentioned in my previous post). We took pictures of a variety of frames that are possibly the ones I would get to wear while out and about. Yes, some are just lovely and others are a bit of fun. Cait was such a great kid and sat up a poll so you all could vote on the new glasses that I will be getting to wear out and about.
I will say that we got some really funny looks while in the frames department. I’m trying on frames and Brad is taking pictures. I thought it seemed completely logical considering that I can not see a freakin thing when I take off my real glasses. I do not see why optometrist offices do not do this themselves. In fact I am going to load up my camera and laptop and charge a small fee to take pics of people trying on new frames, upload them right there, and let them see themselves. I will be Rich, I tell you!
In one picture you see a lady in a white lab coat standing behind me. No, she is not there to put a straight jacket on me. She was the gal helping us in the frames department and was a real sweetheart for putting up with us.
Ok, so here are some of the frames I tried on. You my online friends get to help me with my ‘face make over’. If I can not rely on the friends in my computer than whom can I rely on? Sorry – there is really nothing that can be done about the hair.
You can make your choice and also leave a comment if you want. Beware - if you click on the picture in the poll - it opens up a new picture and my face is huge. Can be a bit scary!
