I Can See Clearly Now That Spring Has Come – My Journey to Glasses
Hallelujah I can see! I have finally taken the leap. After ten long years, it is finally time to commit to eyeglasses. That’s right everyone, I have been putting off getting eyeglasses for as long as I can remember. Having one eye that sees far and one eye that sees near, I’ve been straining to have clear vision for so long, it’s become normal. It’s honestly comical at this point how badly I needed glasses. I’m talking, “can’t-tell-the-difference-between-a-cat-or-a-dog” kind of bad.
Frankly, the search for prescription eyeglasses that looked fashionable and classic has been my biggest challenge. I have a traditional Asian nose and facial structure. My nose bridge is pretty low. I wanted a pair of eye glasses that look and feel great and FINALLY found my soul mate thanks to Eyeconic!
In case you are in the same boat and are apprehensive about the progress, let me walk you through just how easy it was with Eyeconic! Their “How to Buy Eyeglasses Online Guide” was incredibly helpful as a starting point. I referred to the face shape guide a lot when considering frame shapes. Since I have a squarer face, I decided on a more rounded frame. The coolest tool on the planet is Eyeconic’s virtual try-on tool. I used my phone’s camera to capture a short video and photo. With their virtual tool, I could see how the glasses would look immediately! No waiting for at home try-ons here! This was my favorite step. I tried on over 20 pairs from the comfort of my own couch! Gotta love technology, right?
After the try-ons, I landed on the Chloé CE2130 in Gold/Rose. They are seriously made for me! I love the retro aviator look. The non-slip nose pad makes long term wearing total breeze. I think they look pretty fabulous!
The last step was to upload the prescription from your latest exam. If you are a newb like me, you’ll need an in-office eye exam to determine your prescription. Eyeconic partners with a network of 40,000 doctors. Use the Find A Doctor tool to find a doctor near you. You can simply upload the prescription and voila, all done! With free shipping and free returns, the whole process is worry-free.
I still cannot believe how big of a difference having vivid, clear vision makes my everyday life! Visiting our favorite Houston nursery was even more enjoyable. I picked up 2 more indoor plants for our living area. It was soooo much easier being able to zero in on the plant I wanted, all the way across the property. I feel like a superwoman! Ha!
Head to Eyeconic to find the best frames for your face! I dare you to try on the most fun pair!
