So I was looking at online prescription eyeglasses instead of grading French quizzes. There are a bunch of suppliers, many have a good command of English. A few of them have handy online virtual mirrors; the best ones were Zenni Optical and Global Eyeglasses. The online glasses are so cheap, the author of an article I was reading said he bought multiple pairs, just because he could afford to. Immediately I thought of Kiwi J, who was the first person I ever knew who had multiple pairs of glasses. I guess I just attributed it to extreme vanity, but now I realize it was cheap China prices.
When I got lasik, the doctor warned me I’d probably need glasses after a while, that’s just how it goes. My vision is way, way better than it was before lasik, but I’ve gotten to the point where I think it might be nice to have glasses when I’m driving, especially if I have to read signs in an unfamiliar place.
I think I have a pair coming through my medical insurance, but I might have to get more glasses and other health-related accessories just to get my flex money back. Oh and I will get it back.
