It’s been about 10 years since I had a new pair of glasses. With my prescription, that’s quite a long time to be wearing the same pair.
My old glasses were falling apart. The lenses were scratched, cloudy, the frames had been bent, and they didn’t sit quite square on my face anymore. They were a mess, and it’s a wonder I could see through them at all – but I was used to them.
Finally, a couple weeks ago I got a new eye exam and ordered a brand new pair. I went with a new shape for the eye pieces, and a pretty purple for the frame. No more bland tan or thin gold for me.
After much anticipation, the new pair finally arrived a few days ago. We pulled them out, took off the old glasses, and put on the new.
Guess what happened?
