One of the side effects of my new job is eye strain. I sit and stare at a computer from 8:30 am until around 6:30 (or, like today, 7:30) pm. And the thing that I’m staring at all day is tiny HTML code. Incidentally, my eye prescription has changed.
Between that and the fact that I finally have vision insurance again, I decided that it was time to get new glasses. I’ve had my glasses for more than four years. I have contacts too, but I only wear them on the days I have ballet.
My friends Kris and Erin introduced me to an awesome company called Warby Parker. You can pick out 5 pairs to try on at home via their website. The company mails the glasses to you, you decide what you like, and then you send the samples back and have your glasses made. For NINETY-FIVE DOLLARS. TOTAL! (Um, the frames I looked at while I was at the eye doctor would have been more than $300 – WITH my insurance)
I just got my samples today, and I like several of them. Help me pick out my new look!
