I’m not sure many people hope for their vision to change significantly enough that they require new glasses, but I had my fingers crossed for a new prescription at my recent eye doctor appointment. Why? I’ve been wearing my wire-rimmed Kate Spade “Dara” eyeglasses for almost three years, and I was ready for a change. Specifically, I wanted a pair of “nerd” glasses — you know, plastic-rimmed, slightly oversized, hipster-esque eyewear.
Just so my parents don’t freak, I should clarify that I still have 20-20 vision, but I wear glasses with slight magnification to make it easier to stare at the computer for eight hours at a time. And lucky for me — my doc made my Rx stronger! I raced home from his office and quickly logged on to Warby Parker‘s website to sign up for their free home try-on program. They have a fab set-up that allows to you “date” five pairs of glasses (according to Bows & Sparrows – love the analogy!) for five days before making a commitment. This is perfect scenario for someone like me who is chronically indecisive.
To assist me in my decision-making, I submit to you photos of me trying on my test glasses — Miles, Langston, Zagg, Finn and Colton. I think I have a fave, but I’m not ready to commit. Which do you like best? Cast your vote in the comments section below!
And so we’re all on the same page, I’m not being compensated in any way by Warby Parker. I’m just a regular ol’ groupie. They offer stylish and affordable Rx glasses, only $95 a pair. Considering my insurance does not cover prescription glasses, this is a big deal.
Ready, set, vote!
