I see!

Got my eyes checked this week (after 2.5 years). Nothing’s changed, but I did take the opportunity of having a current prescription to do a little glasses shopping (the pair I wear is nearly 10 years old). Yes, I got new glasses last time I had my eyes checked, but I picked them with dilated eyes and they… do not fit. They’re too big in every dimension and my cheekbones hit when I talk, making them easy Lena-grabbing-targets.

So, I tried out the Warby Parker home try-on program (which is a great idea) and chose Reece in Midnight Blue. But then I started looking around some more, and am sort of leaning toward getting a back-up pair with spring hinges: Ltede 1002 from Coastal. Do I need a back-up pair? Would I get use out of them? I liked how easy it is to just throw on glasses and go, not worrying about contacts. Thoughts?

  1. The Coastal ones are pretty. Having two pair is nice. Weigh the pros and cons. I have had mostly one pair because of cost. Bifocals and all the add-ons increase the cost. I used to get a second pair in Rx sunglasses.

  2. Sunglasses, I’m all about the $20 ones from Target. And I found a coupon so that I’d only be paying for the lenses on the second pair… Hrm.
