My journey of wearing glasses began a long time ago. “Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start.”
(Don’t judge me too harshly. This was my first video for An Empowered Spirit. NOTE TO SELF: Stop saying “ANYWAY”..)
When I first dated my husband I refused to let him see me wearing my “coke bottle” glasses. My nearsightedness required the lenses of my eyeglasses to be quite thick. I was used to wearing contact lenses and felt self-conscious wearing glasses.
A few months after we began dating I developed an eye condition preventing me from wearing my contacts. One night, we decided to go to a local restaurant for dinner that, coincidentally, my future in-laws were dining at as well. After spotting us, they began to walk over to meet me and I quickly took off my glasses and hid them. While being introduced, I attempted to look as upbeat and casual as possible.
In reality, all I saw were two complete blurs. I had no idea what they looked like.
Eyeglasses have come a long way since 1985. They are not only functional, but have also become a fashion accessory. You can express your style and personality through chic, trendy or sophisticated lenses.
I no longer think twice about wearing glasses in public.
As I age, all print seems to be getting smaller and smaller. I can’t shop in a store without the need to pull my readers from my purse so I can read a list of ingredients or the fine print in a circular.
I have a pair of readers in every room of the house, a pair in my car, one in my purse…
After Readers.com reached out to me to try their product, I was surprised not only at the wide selection of readers and eyeglasses they offer, but at their affordable prices. Their guarantee of satisfaction is important, because I know firsthand how crucial it is to find the right pair of eyewear.
Whether I’m writing, reading or shopping, a comfortable and stylish pair of readers makes my life easier while giving me a chance to express myself.
Hmm. Which pair will I wear today?
Do you wear readers?
