I had my first pair of eyeglasses when I was in my mid-twenties, as a consequence of my work which consisted of staring at the computer screen almost all day long. This was the time of the desktop computer: those big, bulky CPUs and big, bulky monitors.
I was in denial for some time that I had a problem with my eyesight. I finally went to a doctor to have my eyes checked when it became clear that I was having a hard time reading signs from a distance.
My first pair of eyeglasses was an ugly, lightly-tinted one. I didn’t take time to choose a better looking one because I didn’t think I’d have to wear them a lot. My plan was to just wear them when I needed to. Well, turns out I had to wear them often, especially when going out of the house since I’m near-sighted.
Before, I always kept two pairs, one to use regularly and the other one a spare. One’s expensive- lightweight titanium frame, ultra-thin, non-glare, multi-coated lens with UV protection, while the other one’s a cheap plastic frame with regular lens.
I don’t know what is it with eyeglasses but I keep losing them.
Now that I work at home, I just have one pair for when I go out, which isn’t everyday. I don’t really need to use them at home, except when there’s some interesting show on TV.
I’m thinking of getting a new pair of eyeglasses again though, because I like to alternate using different styles. Recently I saw this website http://www.greateyeglasses.com/ where I could look at many different styles.
When looking for eyeglasses, I usually look for lightweight, rounded frames and thin lens. The website has so many great eyeglasses, it would be hard to choose only one style that I like. Ok, so maybe I’d just take two then.
