Wearing glasses is kind of a drag. I mean, they’re wonderful, really, the way they bring the watery world around me into focus and help me trip less and I know there are many people with worse vision problems than me who don’t have corrective lenses. It’s just I would prefer not to wear them.
However, contacts make my eyes mad itchy and I can’t afford to get 20/20 vision via lasers at the moment, which leaves me with two options: walk around the city nearly blind or wear the damn glasses.
Wearing the damn glasses has been better since I got some stylish, geek-chic Dita frames last fall. I wear them to work every day and I feel more confident wearing specs that reflect my personal style and are both modern and retro. (That’s the truth, even though it sounds like an oxymoron.)
