|Me trying out GlassesUSA.com's virtual mirror|
My eyesight finally got bad enough that I had to address it in the past few years. First, when I worked for the prison, we had to shoot a pistol and rifle qualification every year and I went from qualifying as an expert to barely passing it. One of the instructors even told me it seemed like I couldn't see the target well at a distance and recommended getting some prescription eyeglasses. I put it off for a bit longer and finally went to the eye doctor once I was getting headaches from reading on the internet and trying to write on the computer, and because it was getting hard to read street signs when I drove.
I'm still pretty vain though, so I opted for contacts again. I did a little better with them, but there are times that glasses are just more convenient and certain activities that it's not good to wear contacts for. My optometrist recommended getting at least one pair of glasses as a backup and they've come in really handle for dry and windy days when the contacts bother me and for days I swim and don't want to keep changing them between driving, swimming, and showering.
There are so many different styles of glasses frames available these days that I don't have to worry about fashion anymore. There are all sort of styles and colors available that will match any sort of style and fit any face shape, even some that work with my chubby cheeks and retro/punk fashion sense.
There is even a virtual mirror online at GlassesUSA.com that you can try out to see how different frames would look on you, and there's a share feature so you can send it to your friends and get their opinions on them.
