Eyeglass Connoisseur

Friday, January 13, 2012

My Story,

I've worn glasses all my life. I think that makes me an eyeglass connoisseur.

When I was in 1st grade, the teacher wrote a test on the blackboard and I wasn't able to read or decipher anything.

That's when I was first diagnosed with a vision problem and seen by an optometrist. I've been wearing glasses ever since. 

Annual vision care (eye exams) is truly important and finding stylish frames at an affordable price (especially in these economic times) is also.

That is why I'm writing this paid sponsored post for GlassesUSA.com.

    Slightly off topic, but do you know the brand for the sunglasses on the bottom picture? I love the shape so much.
    I was shortsighted for a long time, too. I think I was 8 or 9 when I was diagnosed. And it was the worst time as glasses were so UGLY. Imagine how horrible it was for a girl who wanted to look pretty?
    Great review and I love the images you chose for it.

    I use to hate wearing glasses. I've been short-sighted since junior high, but wore contacts because it just wasn't 'cool' - or at least the frame choices back then was much more limited. But now I can't get enough of all the frame designs out there!

    Wonderful, wear glasses myself!! Since 4th grade, haha!! Am glad they make better ones than I had back then, oh dear, terrible, LOL!! Hope your week has been fabulous doll!!! xxx

    Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

    Hey Little Rus! I can relate! LOL All of the frames were huge and you didn't have much of a style or color choice. I had a pink and blue pair! Those were my only options. HaHaHa The particular style you like above came from their Sales & Coupons section on their site. I used their promotional pics (sales, sunglasses, glasses) for this post. I saw a cute pair of Lacoste (similar), but I would contact their 1-800 customer service number for any details about those. They have so many glasses. They're the experts.

    Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

    Hey Everybody! I thank you so much for sharing your eyeglass story! It's good knowing, I wasn't the only one going through it as a child. HaHa :) So many nicer options now! LOL

    Jax said...

    I also wear contact and glasses. After working on a computer all day, I'm finding myself rocking my glasses more often. I actually just bought a new pair of glasses through Prada. They were $400!!!!! How crazy is that?? and I barley wear them. Sigh...I'll just blame it on being a girl.

    Happy weekend :)

    CottonCandyINK said...

    very nice glasses, ;-)

    Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

    Jax, same here hun! I spent a little over $300 two years ago for the frames alone (not including the cost of lenses or eye exam). It really get's expensive (with or without insurance)! Because at one point the company I was working for only had medical, NOT vision and dental. Uggh! O_o

    MosaMuse said...

    good to know because i need some glasses!

    This is good to know, because it's been about 2 years since I have had an eye exam, and I know my eyesight has gotten worse! Have a great weekend Kim :) Heather

    I've worn glasses since I was 11. Still hate them but I detest contacts even more. At least there's such a variety of glasses available these days.

    amy b.s. said...

    i was just thinking i needed new glasses!

    Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

    I'm feeling the glasses LOVE! It's truly amazing you guys. They have frames as low as $38 including the lenses. Click on one of the five links in my post, click on "deals of the week", then scroll down to prices (left hand side)! Yes, $30-40, $40-50, $50-60. You are SEEING correctly. LOL

    Meena said...

    Wow Kim...this is a great site...very affordable too...I need new frames...I have been wearing glasses since 8th grade....!! Thanks for sharing hun!

    Happy Friday!

    I am so picky when it comes to choosing my glasses. Right now, I am kind of obsessed with my DKNY glasses because they are funky but flattering. I hate it when glasses are too boring.

    my glasses are so old!

    Alex Elizabeth said...

    I want that striped hat.

    I'm a weirdo who skipped glasses alltogether and went straight to contacts. I have glasses for emergencies, but my eye doctor actually recommends that I don't wear them-- huge discrepancy in prescriptions for each eye. But if I did wear glasses I would definitely check out GlassesUSA!

    designchic said...

    I definitely need to check this out!! Happy Friday ~

    Michelle said...

    Aww I just bought new glasses. I showed three people and their responses were:
    1. Your transformation to oldladyhood is almost complete.
    2. Why don't you buy a little chain to wear them around your neck?
    3. I like them. (that was my fiance, he knows better)

    Fashion.MakeUp.LifeStyle said...

    I heard of them before and it sounds like they're worth a second look so I'm off to check them out.

    Check you out with your paid posts ;) lol! I wear glasses and I admit, I can't stand itttttt. But it's part of life - I have a vision problem, that's a fact. What annoys me is when people say glasses aren't attractive. So many people need glasses because vision issues are common but everyone fronts like they don't need them because contacts have made it easier to hide it. I only can wear contacts once and a while (sensitive eyes) and now that I wear my glasses more often I realize how silly it is for me to be annoyed by them. I need them.

    Nice article! These tips are very helpful especially for individuals who wish to purchase their glasses. However, in case that you do not know the best frames that can complement your face and style, it is best to go to a reliable optical shop like this site.
