Astigmatism – somehow this is supposed to make me feel better about the rays of light when I drive at night, and actually, it does a bit. Outside of the astigmatism my eyesight is actually very good. The only other pair of glasses I ever gave in to my daughter, at the age of three, melted down in her crayon maker. I took that as a sign and did not replace them. I have nothing against eyeglasses I have seen so many woman who pull them off flawlessly. For me though, finding a pair of glasses that I did not feel like a complete goober (yes I used the word goober, please don’t judge me) in has not been an easy task. I am not fond of the way I look in them, I have always loved my eyes and can’t help but feel like they take away from that. My husband on the other hand loves me in glasses and keeps trying to take photos of me to send to his family and co-workers. The fact that I really only need them for driving at night and very rarely outside of that definitely helps with the transition. Thankfully “geek chic” glasses are considered a great accessory piece. I decided I would embrace it and let my geek flag fly, prescription and all.
