New Glasses
I just bought a new pair of glasses.

Fancy new memory titanium half rim frames, the very latest high RI lenses, anti-glare, and they darken in sunlight.

I would have paid almost 700 at the optican's shop.

I paid less than 200 for them. From 39dollarglasses.com

When they arrive, I will send my old frames in to them get new lenses as well, plus I'm probably going to get a pair of burning man googles, and get rx lenses put in them.

And I'm thinking about getting some brass steampunk googles, and getting rx lenses put in them...

You can get new glasses for Eight Dollars! I remember my parents having to take a deep breath to buy my glasses when I was a kid.

Yay for imports, cheap manufactured goods, and deflationary pressure!

I bought a pair of prescription reading glasses from Zinni. Not the best quality frames, but the lenses were right on the prescription, so no complaints.

I just wish I could get an optician to listen to me. I keep getting run through the standard drill, and nobody seems to listen to me about the double image I get from my astigmatism. I can never get the exact right correction.

I can definitely tell that my eye lenses are stiffening up too.

I will get anti reflection in the future, since lately I've been able to see the reflection of my own eye on the inside of my lenses.

The last optician told me I was not a good candidate for Lasik.
