Well it's about that time to visit the eye doctor. I usually go in January but this year has been kind of busy. Luckily, my eye care professional is located a few minutes from my house and I won't be needing a vehicle.
I'm trying to decided between glasses or contacts. I fortunately have medical insurance with partial vision coverage, and they end up paying for either half a year of contacts or a preset limit for glasses.
As anyone who has ever been in the market for eye-wear knows, the frames (usually) are the cheapest part; the lens is where the real money goes. Now obviously there are designer frames but those are out of the question for me. No, I think I will find the cheapest and most durable pair they have and rock those. Either that or get "old-people glasses", like the really big ones, because they are practical and cheap. Mainly just for shits and giggles though.
Anyway I've been wearing contacts for years now and I'm kind of edgy about the transition, but I think it's about time. Contacts are a nuisance and have become an irritant for my eyes in recent years. But still the idea of acquiring both is a thought that I've been having, and I'm going to try to figure out a way to get it done. Contacts are cheaper online is my theory, and a really cheap pair of frames shouldn't be too difficult to find.. there just won't be a great selection of styles, which I guess I don't care about anyway.
Well I am just fortunate I have medical insurance. Without medical insurance I wouldn't be getting anything lol. I know many other countries have socialized medicine, but here in America, you are in a bad place without medical insurance.
So do you guys wear glasses? Are you one of the "lucky" 20/20s? :P
Thanks for reading! ^_^
