as a visual artist, the "visual" part of me has needed correction for the last 15 years or so. when i first went to the eye doctor in my mid 30's requesting bifocals, he laughed. that was, until he tested my eyes. then it was obvious to both of us, and i walked out with a new prescription for progressive lenses.
over the several doctors have tried to talk me in to contacts. oh, i have tried. bad idea. i went for a couple of weeks one time before i gave up and put the glasses back on. i don't really mind glasses. i usually don't even notice them on my face. what i do notice are nice frames when i am staring back at myself in the mirror. so i alway splurge for something a bit fun or funky or colorful. i usually wear these frames for at least 2 years, every day for over 16 hours.
here are my new ones. slightly catty, just like me!
