Yeah. I wear glasses now. Sometimes. My prescription is so weak as to be near non-existant, but mild astigmatism + sitting in front of a screen 27 hours a day + vision benefits = glasses.

Buying them was quite the exercise in personal exploration. Do I go for the bolder, geek-chic glasses, or the subtler, sly frames?

In the meantime, giant, super-fashionable sunglasses look unnervingly good on me.

Hey, good choice!

I went with a black frame the last time. I thought Deb was going to have a stroke. I'd had a silver toned frame...so it was quite a change.

After about three days, she admited to liking my choice! Ha!

I kept my small, rectangular tortoise shell sunglasses...maybe not so hip, but i like them.

Those look good on you! I'm VERY near-sighted, so I have to pick frames based on looking at myself in the mirror from a distance of about 4". Not the best way to get a good idea of how you look. So these days I stick with the rectangular kinds of frames that I know work reasonably well with my face.
