After waiting impatiently I got to go pick them up today. I like them, a fair bit. I find that the new prescription definitely makes everything a bit sharper, but as with any new glasses prescription I feel a little like I am walking down a hill all the time. I am sure my eyes will adjust soon enough. I also think the thicker arms on these will take some getting used to.
I also got my new sunglasses. When I first tried them on in the store, I thought, are they really me? They are a little trendy, a little bigger than I would have chosen. However after wearing them for about a minute I decided that I really liked them. I also appreciate being able to see clearly when I am driving. For the last couple of years, when I wear sunglasses to drive, my vision was not all that clear because my sunglasses were just cheap ones. I look forward to using these for the next few years. They are Marilyn Monroe brand, and even have a little 'M' with a circle of little diamonds around it on the arms. Pretty swanky!
