temporary vision

(viewed 1748 times)

The specs vision express paid for after messing up my prescription last week. My old frames had developed a new, scary-looking crack that was growing daily, and were around 2mm of thin plastic away from breaking.

These aren't very comfortable, and the lenses are poor compared to what I'm used to, but at least they aren't about to fall apart, and they only cost twenty quid (I paid for AR coatings)

Just what I was thinking, good colours to complement the blue.

I actually didn't buy a new jacket the other day 'cos it clashed with my hair. Ended up getting the red one rather than the blue one.. The middle-aged lady (it was in a posh department store) who was serving me found it all very amusing.

Nice specs! Your eyes look super blue, too. I think you must've got the bluer eyes.

Um, but is it a reflection, or are your eyebrows going grey? *ducks and covers*

They are super-blue. They go much bluer than this, some days. Haven't quite figured out what eye-colour-change is connected to, but they do vary.

And no, it's not grey hair, it's bad light. Honest. Even if they were, they'd be turning distinguished, not grey.

Nice glasses. I like two tone plastic glasses. Are they a second pair to complement your ultra-thin ones then?

I'm picturing you flummoxing the ladies in Jarrolds (if it was that department store). They always strike me as very friendly in there.

Three-tone: they are white, black and orange. These are the temporary replacements (and spare-specs to-be) for my knackered rimless frames, the real replacements for which are going to be at least another 20 days, 'cos Vision Express screwed up my prescription.

Jarrolds staff are lovely, it's true. The lady was a bit bemused, but she was very helpful.

Three tone. I stand corrected.

If they muck up again, demand another free pair.

The time that D&A; mucked up my supras (half-rimless) I ended up with the original pair, plus two tone plastic ones, plus prescription sunglasses. I was a skint postgrad at the time and those glasses kept me going for ages.

I like the glasses and your eyes look great too... Is there a really blue eye blogged somewhere?

mat says:

you may be thinking of this post, but I think there's another one or two somewhere as well.

OK, it does not work for this pic, but I must say that my eye colour which is blue/green seems to change with the colour of the clothing that I wear ... blue top means blue eyes, green top means greener eyes, no doubt it's all to do with reflection .....

MaggieD says:

Oh yes, and I do like your glasses .....

Neat glasses. I think if I had to wear them, this would be the sort I'd get.

Meh. I'm not that much of a fan. These were the frames I least hated that I could have. Once you've gone rimless, there's no going back - I really don't like having my world framed constantly, but as I said, at least these aren't in imminent danger of failure, and they didn't cost me any significant amount of money.

i likes these too.

I can't have rimless due to my complex prescription i prefer thick chunky plastic to hide the thickness of the lense. It's lack of peripheral vision i hate.
