Another stupid question:
How do people with poor eyesight choose frames for their glasses? They need their glasses on to see clearly but they can't keep their glasses on to try on frames. What happens if they choose a frame and then after their prescription is filled and they can clearly see what the frames look like on their face, they don't like the look?
The reason that I'm asking is because my eyesight is getting worse. Right now, I can still step back from the mirror and see what I look like. What happens when I can't do that any more and everything looks fuzzy (far and near) without my glasses on?
Every time I have chosen new frames I was wearing my old glasses. All I can say is I hate The Harry Potter Phenomenon. As a fluffy person having itty frames has not helped my self-steam*.
Back in the days of big frames... I had to deal with heavy glass lenses (and side of the nose indents). So it has been a trade-off. Smaller lenses and less side vision.
I have not had a decent pair of glasses since I was 12. That optician actually measure not just the distance between my eyes but took into account the fact my ears were not level.
I lost those glasses 6 months later in an open vehicle ride. I searched the ditch but to no avail. Went 4 years without glasses after that... $@#$@# parents.
Now, with insurance, I am just glad to be able to see and really don't care how they look unless it is an up close photo ... for which I take my glasses off and smile in the vague direction of the camera.
* I am not pleased being fluffy... less so in photos where itty frames make my face look even larger.
