For those who don’t know me, I’ve had myopia since the age of 9. This is the fancy word for nearsightedness and I find that it is a hindrance in terms of daily activities, however, it is sometimes fun to wear glasses with certain outfits. Glasses can be an expression of yourself as well as any other article of clothing.
Sometimes I find that I look more polished when wearing a pair of specs. Not only that but other people’s perception of you changes when you wear glasses (Link here for full journal). According to their experiment, judgement from others of people who wear glasses associates wearers with goodness as well as intelligence. When I find a pair that frames my face, I tend to wear them all the time.
Mainstream optometry makes it difficult to get glasses for an affordable price as I have gotten pairs of glasses for nearly $300 before. Nowadays I understand my diopter readings and I know what each value means on the prescription sheet so I order my glasses online at either EyeBuyDirect, Firmoo or Zenni Optical. Each of these online retailers is easy to use and so much more affordable. I’ve gotten a pair of glasses for $15 including anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings. The black ones I’m wearing above are called Forest from EyeBuyDirect (Click here for the link and $10 off your first purchase). Firmoo has some cute styles like my clear and gold pair, they often have deals where you could buy one get one free. (Click here for a free pair from firmoo).
These retailers also have glasses lenses with digital blue light filters or just clear lenses if you don’t really need glasses. Not only that but I have gotten prescription sunglasses from these retailers as well, perfect for driving during the day.
