I'm far past the point where I should have started wearing glasses. I clearly can't read things at a distance that most people have no problem with. (I blame staring at a computer screen day in day out for the past 8 years for this development)
Question is - what type of frames do I get? What are you specky fella's wearing these days.
I'm sure on of the spam-whores on here can point you in the direction of 'designer frames cheap cheap prices!!!'
plastic frames. glass lenses. you have to ask for glass lenses as they are scratch proof and are long lasting. try to get a frame where the inside is a soft colour. turtleshell if possible inside.
le sigh – these virtual frame try on rigs are depressing. They seem a really poor substitute for trying on specs. But these are all great sites for ideas..
goto a flea market and find a good vintage frame. can be sunglasses. give frames to your optician and put in glass lenses.
problem with flea markets is I have no patience. i need instant gratification and if i can't find what i want i cry like a little baby bitch.
Warby Parker is officially awesome. Pick out 5 pairs online. They send them to you free. Instant gratification. I don't have to go out to try them on. Boom.
Now i just need a Rx.
I think I'm quickly becoming near-sighted from staring at a computer too much
- top one with 2nd from bottom interiors.. black outside tortoise shell inside.. is what i wear.e_p
- mine are 1951 Gucci, last year frames were hand made b4 being made in Japan machinede_p
- get something that fits your face versus shape in a picture.e_p
- That's the idea of trying a few out. If thick is no good I'll move to something a little more normal.jtb26

dont go thin!! chicks dig the thick!!e_p
- Had to be done.jtb26

"...I blame staring at a computer screen day in day out for the past 8 years for this development..."
I've been staring at a computer screen 12-16 hours a day for 20 years and have not developed any vision problems. Genetics and nutrition are far more relevant than what you're using your eyes far. (Obviously barring direct abuse.)
Fish Oil... 3–6 a day will significantly help the health of your eyes by enhancing tear production.
I had this very expensive, but very good glasses from Armani.
The best I had so far in 27 years.
Broke them to months ago, bought some 29€ glasses at Pearl because I wanted to continue using the same lenses, recent and very special indeed, and no others I liked would give that chance.
Almost got some Raybans, not the hipster stuff...
