I just had an eye exam and apparently have astigmatism but still have reasonably good focusing abilities, which explains why shifting my head left or right can help focus better than moving closer or further away.

Then came the difficult part, picking glasses. I'm wondering if I fell victim to up-sell, or perhaps the expensive glasses do actually look better. I'm not really sure what looks good so was somewhat at the mercy of the tastes of the optometry staff.

I ended up with "style t93" which, if you're patient you can see them on the style page in this flash animation. The color of the frame bits match my current hair color.

They're flexible have all the current features that typical glasses have and are going to take a couple of weeks to show up.

I hope other people think they look nice.

You are so cute!

Welcome to the world of the Framed Ones.

Honey, I couldn't navigate the site, or rather, I'm not patient enough, nor can I read those tiny, tiny numbers. Irony. You'd think that a glasses site would use LARGER FONT, eh? HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Can you make a link to a JPG or something? Or better yet, post a picture of yourself with them on when you get them!! I'm sure you'll look FABOO. And BOOTIFULL, moon goddess.

I found that with my flashplayer if I right-click I there's a zoom option. Of course you then they have so many different shaped lenses that it cycles through 4 or 5 pages, which involve waiting around trying to see those tiny numbers.

These high fashion places end up creating sites that are incredibly difficult to use.

And when I get them in 2 weeks or so I'll be sure to post pictures. I should've done it while I was at the optometrists.

yes, yes--pictures, please. i refuse to download flash (because that thwarts so many annoying advertisers), so i can't ever see flash stuff.
