- Wedding: August 2018
I got glasses when I was around 25 – the tip off that my vision had gotten that bad (it was never perfect) was failing the eye exam to renew my license.
When I first the glasses, I only wore them sometimes, like driving and watching a concert or something, but gradually found myself wearing them more and more often. Got a new prescription recently, which is a bit stronger than my original one. I can still get around okay without glasses, but I miss details and can’t recognize people or read signs from afar.
I did a trial run of contacts, but had a miserable time wth them – my prescription calls for huge floppy contacts, which are difficult for me to put in. Need to order more to have on my wedding day, because I’d like to not wear glasses and also recognize my guests from more than five yards away.
As for my frames, I have a couple pairs of thin, neutral metal frames that have a minimal visual impact on my face and go with anything. I’m not terribly bothered by them or how they look.
