Astigmatism

Well, it's official.
I'm back in 24/7 glasses mode.

Two weeks ago I found I have developed an astigmatism.
It's where my corneas are no long spherical, and instead more "football" shaped.
It just means I need glasses to correct my vision.
Though I'm sure all you smarty pants already knew that.
 Anyway... up until now you've seen plenty 
of cutie pictures of me without glasses...
and now, I apologize, but that's going to change.
BUT—
It's rather awesome that glasses are a hot fashion accessory at the moment.
So let's just say I'm riding that trendy wave.
If only I'd have looked good in a big ol' pair of retro specs. 
Now that would've been truly swanky.

I am thankful that glasses are trendy - it makes me feel less nerd like. But lady - you look super foxy in those frames so you've got nothing to worry about.

Also - I wish my giant moon face looked good in giant 80's retro specs as well - but no dice!

Those glasses are cute! I have glasses too, but they drive me crazy so I only wear them when I drive. I feel that I need some big old frames to fit in :)

Love the glasses! I started wearing mine at 25 because of astigmatism and am so THANKFUL for trendy frames these days that I much prefer my glasses over contacts any day of the week-hands down! In fact there are even people out there who wear "fake" glasses to be trendy, crazy, huh?! I do like the purple on you...with green eyes, purple will be the most flattering color :)

I love those specs!

Loving your braid and glasses! I love glasses, and being able to wear glasses, but i do have contacts as well because well sometimes i don't want to wear them, but that is the best part! You can wear them when you want and when you don't you don't have to! Ok soooo enough rambling. I really did come here to tell you I love that braid!

Kristen Danielle said...

Aw your glasses are so cute! You look great in them! I have been guilty of wearing non-prescription glasses just for fashion; love 'em!

I am also loving your new blog design! :)

Joslin said...

Bright side: You look great in glasses!

Stephine said...

I have an astigmatism in both eyes... so annoying! They do have contacts that are special made for it but glasses are better!

Kristen @ Confessions of a GDS said...

I wish I could be cool and wear glasses! They look so cute on you! And I like your lip color :)

P.S. I heart the new design!

I have an astigmatism too, but I still wear contacts. It's my left eye & when I take my contacts out they are shaped like a football. My contacts have been bothering me for like 2 years, so I have been wearing glasses more around the house. I hate glasses though, especially on me. I look horrible & they drive me crazy (behind my ears hurt, they get dirty so fast with my daughter putting her fingers all over them, they leave a mark on my nose & they keep sliding down). I love that braid.

I have astigmatism in my left eye, although I don't wear my glasses as much as I should! Mine are by Jai Kudo. I only wear them for reading and at the computer when my eyes start to hurt. Naughty me!

Your glasses suit you, i like! :)

Those glasses are great. I've got an astigmatism too, another thing in common. Love the new blog look, suits you to a tee

Emily said...

Looking hot, lady!

Gabi said...

You look good kid! ;) I also suffer of astigmatism..AND myopia! ;/ Ive had like...5 glasses, Im a bit clumsy so I used to lose them and break them ( like forgetting them in my bed and sitting ) though now Ive been using the same model for 2 years I guess! Its a black model, from Kipling. I like yours! And...I wonder if you are wearing any lipstick on that photo? Your lips look natural but still its got a nice color on it.. ;)

ps: Its gabi, the one that felt in love with your hair ;P

Congrats on the glasses! I love how glasses look on people and you only prove why :]
I have two pairs, one in purple and one in brown + teal. I totally love mine but the prescriptions aren't strong enough... Time to make an appointment with the eye doctor across the street!
