I don’t wear glasses, but have always wished I did. Once, in college, I was getting a lot of headaches, and I realized it: This was my chance! So I went to the eye doctor, basically begging for glasses. His response: “Um. Your eyes are fine. I mean, I guess I could prescribe the closest thing to plain glass that is not in fact plain glass.”
So he did, and I got my glasses — which I never wore, because come on, who can remember to wear glasses when you don’t actually have to? I still have them; they sit, dusty, at the bottom of a drawer.
All of this is to say that a) I like glasses a lot, and b) if you’re looking for non-hipster glasses options, maybe you should peruse this wonderful post over at A Continuous Lean. I hope to make use of it in 10-20 years, after decades of blogging have finally pulled my eyes out of focus.
