Here’s a fun fact about me: I might as well be legally blind (for all you contact wearers, my prescription is -6.5 in both eyes). I have had the worst eyesight for as long as I can remember. My first pair of glasses were huge, dark brown, and covered most of my face; I’m pretty sure a hipster is wearing them as we speak. Needless to say, I haven’t been a huge fan of glasses since that time of my life. I occasionally wear them to work to give my eyes a break, but I’ve never braved wearing them out for a night on the town. My current glasses are the first pair I’ve ever consistently worn in public, but ever since my sister visited the Warby Parker showroom in NYC, I’ve been dying for a pair of their frames.
Warby Parker is a great company, from what I’ve read. Every single pair of glasses is $95 and they’ll even send you a pair to try on before making a decision. I can’t wait to pick some!
