Needing Glasses

I
went through laser eye surgery over ten years ago, I was pleased with the
results but last year the optician did say I would need to think about getting
glasses soon. I know I cannot put it
off forever, as the effects of my surgery seem to be wearing off. I am not doing so well on my sight test, a
little bit too much guesswork is going on for identifying those tricky smaller
letters than my optician allows! I
think he can tell as I also screw my eyes up to try and see them, which I never
needed to do beforeā€¦ He is a lovely optician, great with the children, but he won’t be convinced by my plea’s that I don’t need glasses.

I
could go through the surgery again, but I am not as brave in my late thirties
as I was in my twenties. I have the
boys now and I do not think I would feel comfortable going through it again,
when my sight is so important for helping them. Plus its not like I have spare money anymore, back then my bank account was relatively healthy, these days its on its last legs!

I just need to change my opinion of glasses! I guess I never really gave them a chance,
when I was a youngster and had glasses, I had no style just HUGE glasses that
never really suited me! I
want it to be different this time round, if I really do have to accept its time
to go back to glasses then I will make sure they fit the shape of my face. I really like this helpful guide from My Glasses Guru even I
cannot get it wrong this time, you put your face shape, skin tone and hair
colour so its fairly comprehensive. I
want to be confident wearing glasses; all my earlier memories of them are quite
negative. I think my glasses were even
bigger than those Deirdre Barlow
used to wear on Coronation Street. Plus I cannot even blame my mum for picking them for me, she says it was ALL my choice (but my choice might have been limited to the free NHS frames!). I had a habit of wearing them as little as possible so I never saw as well as I should have, I even got in the wrong car once.

The
Superdry glasses
look good, although even amongst them you have your bigger frame! Possibly I was an early trendsetter and
never quite realised it. Maybe I should
never have thrown away my old specs when I had surgery all those many moons
ago. Although Superdry can probably get
away with it because it’s a trendy brand…
