You could should know by now that I kinda feel naked without my glasses and I actually need 1,000 pairs to feel complete. Surprisingly I managed to unplug (kinda, I just didn’t blog for a week…who really quits social media), and during that time I went to get my eyes checked thanks to Lenscrafters.
But this was no regular ole eye visit. It was almost like I was in class. I learned so much from the folks over at the Lenscrafters in Brooklyn (it’s on Court St). Ok so let me confess that at first I was only attentively listening because my doctor was super cute and I was envisioning what our lives might be like together. But then he started to explain that even though my eyes are completely healthy I still cannot see and that’s not my fault and it’s nothing in particular I did wrong as a kid.
The machine (pictured above) captures photos of your eyeballs and tells the doctor everything he needs to know about the health of your eyes.
The picture tells you that my veins are healthy and oxygen is getting into my eyes, although my eyes are a little dry. If my eyes were unhealthy there would be tons of spots and gook all over this image. There are medical terms but like I said, I was a little too distracted to remember all of this so you are getting the basics.
He also explained to me that sitting in front of our TV all night watching “The Carol Burnett Show” (telling my age) when I was a kid didn’t make my eyes any worst. It’s really the shape of our eyes that determine whether we have perfect/good vision. It also determines where we are near sighted or far sighted. And for so long I had NO idea what being far sighted meant. Like, you can see far away but not up close–well, that’s dumb! BUT the doctor explained that it’s all in how your eye is shaped and how light and images come in through the eyes. Or something like that. I think that’s right. Anyways! When you go to Lenscrafters, ask your doctor to explain that part. It’s pretty cool.
After my examine, I spent about 30 minutes trying on all the glasses in the world. Well really just six pairs. It felt like so many. So now I need your help deciding which ones look the best on my big oval face. My thoughts: In the store, I was in love with #1 (they were actually sunglasses from Tory Burch, I made her pop the lens out) but now that I see the pics I kinda love #5 (Prada). And I really wanted #4 (also Tory Burch) to work but, meh?! I. AM. So. Confused!
