yeah. well who knew?
it has become a bit of entertainment to challenge dan how far away he can be and still read a sign clearly ( like a hawk i tell ya) compared with how close we must be to a street sign ( right up on it. thankyouverymuch) for me to read it.
so i finally went for an eye evaluation. the doctor asks me how well i read. to which i tell him that i have no problem at all. i read everyday and spend a large amount of time on the computer, usually editing photos. i just can’t see far away.
well hows that going for you? …well sometimes the photos look a little blurry but i figure i just didn’t snap a clear shot.
um. no that’s your vision ma’am.
so… like a christmas miracle, at the same time i’m finding out about that situation, i hear about warby parker.
have you heard about Warby Parker?
well, this may be an incorrect comparison but they’re sorta like the TOMS of eyeglasses.
buy a pair. give a pair. and they are beyond totally hip. hello.
95 bucks gets you your prescription glasses & free shipping. and the cherry on top is they allow you to try on 5 pair at home. free. their site has a virtual try on option too. what more can you want? ( well if you need bifocals then you’ll want to head elsewhere but other than that…)
so i ordered my 5 pair & could hardly wait for them to arrive. how weird is that? like i’m fired up excited about my newly diagnosed veritable blindness for the sole purpose of being able to wear warby parkers.
so i slapped up a little image on instagram & facebook and the winners were the ainsworth. i might just go back and order another pair of the mallory in blue marblewood because they are crazy funky. and what is a fashion statement if not funky?
so they arrive speedy quick. and i kid you not, the following is a true story.
so i put them on while standing in front of a mirror. i think that’s weird, there’s spots all over my chest. is something on my lenses? eeek! i had no idea how many freckles and sunspots were on my skin! after i recover from that discovery, i continue to walk through the house stunned, at my new vision.
well suffice to say i am thrilled and have been completely pleased with my entire experience with warby parker. madi has ordered her 5 to try on and i’m certain we’ll have another success story. minus the discovery of freckles and sunspots of course.
