I've been wearing glasses since I was eleven years old. My first pair had huge round frames in a speckled pink-and-white pattern and covered the entire top half of my face. I thought they were so cool and instead of wearing them just to see the blackboard, I wore them all the time. This might have contributed to how horrible my vision is today. At this point, if I don't have my contacts in, I probably could not distinguish between my mother or my male boss standing in front of me.
I've had the same pair of glasses for eight years, and even though I have yearly eye exams, I actually never update the lenses. The last time I drove with my glasses on, I decided that it was finally time to replace the old prescription. And why not get new frames at the same time?
I've been looking at Warby Parker glasses for a while and decided to go ahead and take advantage of their try-on program. All I did was pick five pairs that I really liked and Warby Parker sent them to me to sample for a few days. That way, I can wear them around the apartment and see what they really look like on. It was so exciting to receive the box in the mail. I would highly recommend doing this. I was really hesitant about ordering glasses online but Warby Parker does everything to make sure that you love the glasses that you wind up purchasing.
After much consideration, I decided on Fitz in Whiskey Tortoise. They are similar to the frames I have now but a little larger and bolder. And finally, I can see clearly. xo
