I’ve had a love affair with glasses for almost as long as I can remember; however, I had to wait until I had two children before I was able to upgrade to four eyes.
For the longest time I had my son convinced that I really did have four eyes. He took it as fact that all moms have four eyes – two on their face and two behind their head.
His preschool teacher planted this idea in his little brain and I pretty much loved her for it.
It didn’t hurt that when we were in the car, I used the review mirror to my full advantage. Those eyes in the back of my head always seemed to know what was going on.
I wish I really did have four eyes, and if you’re a mom, you probably do too.
Well, I got my wish right after I had my daughter. I noticed that everything was just a little bit blurry and I hated it. To my deep despair, I grew up with 20/20 vision.
I say “deep despair”, because when I was a child, my family and I often walked past an optical store that had all the latest frames showcased in their shop window. There was one pair of glasses I would do anything to have. They were a pair of little frames with a Strawberry Shortcake sticker right in the corner of one lens.
I loved those glasses and my love soon turned from “I love” to “I need” to “I can’t live without!”
Know what I mean?
Some days we spot something and know we cannot possibly live without it, even though in our world, that item didn’t exist until twenty seconds ago.
Well, I couldn’t live without these adorable glasses with the Strawberry Shortcake sticker, so the next time my mom brought me to the eye doctors, I tried to fail. Yup. I was pretty confident I could outwit the doctor. After all, I outwitted my mom nearly every night.
She would come to check on me, all snug in my covers, and I’d pretend to be sound asleep. It sorta became a game for me. With acting skills like these, I was sure I’d be on Broadway by seven.
So I faked a vision problem. I probably would have walked into the doctor’s office with my eyes closed and carrying a cane, but I knew it would have been too much drama for my mom.
During the test where they cover one eye and make you read from a chart on the other side of the room, the F became a Z and the B turned into an N, but the doctor was smarter than my four or five year-old self.
It’s too bad really, because I still think about those eyeglasses.
Now I sport my four eyes every single day and I wish I had a dozen pairs of frames, one for every outfit.
I’ve often thought about ordering frames online, so when GlassesUSA.com contacted me about writing an article on their online shop, I got excited.
I’m impressed with the variety of styles GlassesUSA.com offers. You’re going to have to check them out, because they really have some cute, affordable frames.
I’ve already fallen in love with several.
GlassesUSA.com offers a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee and Free Return Shipping. The best part is that they ship worldwide! Buying affordable eyeglasses with no risk involved is a very attractive offer to me.
They also provide a “Frame Finding Wizard” to help you choose perfect glasses for your personality.
Here’s the thing, I took the personality test just to see if their program could figure out my personal style and they pretty much nailed it. Many of their choices are frames I picked for myself. In some ways I think that’s pretty cool and in other ways, I’m dismayed by the fact that a computer knows me better than I know myself.
If you need prescription eyeglasses, would you ever consider ordering them online?
I know the next time I’m in the market for a new pair of frames, I’m going to order glasses online. There is so much more variety at my budget friendly price-point.
