New Glasses from Zenni Optical!
I ordered these glasses from Zenni Optical and they arrived last Thursday, but I didn't get around to photographing them until today. My eyesight changed enough that I noticed that I wasn't seeing clearly three weeks ago, so I set up an eye doctor appointment. I thought it had been about a year since my last one, but it was almost two years! As I expected, my eyesight had changed quite a bit, so I got a new prescription and went online to browse for glasses. I wanted to try one of the sites with the free at-home try-on programs, but those glasses were still more expensive than what I wanted to pay, so I went to my usual website, Zenni Optical. I wrote about how great their site is before, in this post. Their glasses start from just $6.95 a pair (for both frames and lenses! without upgrades), so they fit any budget. I have ordered from them before. I got the green glasses in these photos there, as well as some brown ones that I don't think I ever posted pictures of. My new ones cost more than the previous pairs, but were still affordable at just under $95. I got these glasses. I got them as no-line bifocals, with oleophobic lens coating (meaning that they're oil-resistant and therefore I don't have to clean them a million times a day), and with the tint that makes them turn into sunglasses when I'm out in the sun, which is great because my eyes have been pretty light-sensitive. They get a light purple tint, which is pretty cool. I am still getting used to the no-line bifocals. It's pretty interesting. The bifocals I had before had a line, so if I looked through that spot in my glasses, I just saw the line. But these ones don't have a line, so if I look through the spot where the prescriptions change, it seems really blurry and feel a little bit nauseous. I'm starting to figure out where that spot is so I don't look through it though. Overall I really like these glasses. They got the prescriptions correct, just as I entered them in my order. They are quality glasses with durable plastic frames and pretty thick lenses.
