New glasses

I'm so excited!

I've been using my old glasses (the small ones) since I discovered that I have astigmatism (about 3 years ago). I always wanted wayfarer-styled glasses and now I have them! I picked 'em up yesterday and I'm still getting used to my new degree. I already knew that it will get worse as the time passes because my cornea is slightly deformed. For the same reason I can't wear lenses or do a surgery, I need to wait while my degree stabilizes.

Until then, I'll be looking pretty fabulous in my new glasses. Very Happy

Congrats on your new glasses, (at least that they are the ones that you want). Hope all goes well with your eyes for a long time to come. It sucks that you can not wear lenses or get surgery to correct them, but at least you can wear some great glasses!

Thank you guys!

I know you'll think me strange, but I wanted to use glasses since I was a little kid. I think it adds to my nerdy self and I don't really look like a nerd without my glasses on. Razz

I am lucky that I don't need glasses. I could NEVER wear contact lenses. Plus glasses can be be a fashion/mmod statement.

Great glasses Vanilla. Also noticed the spiffy new Avatar as well. What does it mean? Cool

You are lucky, indeed. Sometimes I feel that my glasses get in the way, but most of the time I think of them as a protection. Several times they protected me from tails. Very Happy

Thank you Dean! Now I really look as nerdy as I feel. Smile As for my avatar, that's Kroenen from the first Hellboy movie. I'm going through a faceless phase. Razz

I was not meaning to imply that I think wanting glasses seemed strange. I went through a time when I wanted them, myself. Had them, didn't like them, but I am not everyone and I am glad that you like them, especially since you need them. That is a good combination, need and want, not just need. And I can get the whole nerd appearance thing too, or at least more or less. To each their own and as long as you are happy then I am happy for you, and no wanting glasses does not seem strange, like I said there was a time when I wanted them...

Don't worry dear, nothing wrong about it. I do find myself pretty weird and I'm kinda proud of it. Nothing wrong about being weird. Nothing wrong about wanting to wear glasses. Very Happy

Nope, nothing wrong at all with being weird. I am called names like mutant and stuff like that all the time, due to some of the things I like and whatnot, nothing wrong with being weird. It's the normal ones you have to worry about Wink

I hate my glasses. I hate glasses. Therefore I use contact lenses. Cool

My girlfriend is planning on buying new glasses soon. I do not need them myself but working in IT I am sure I will need them one day and if I do.. I want those ray bans similar to the black ones in this pic.

Can't use lenses because by degree isn't stable right now. I'll need to wait some years until I can wear lenses. Not that I care much. I really like waring glasses. Very Happy

Oh, I bet they'll look good on you! These frames look good on everybody!
