I Can See It In Your Eyes

So my week has been off to a bit of a bumpy start. On Sunday my eyes were bothering me a little, but I assumed it was just my contacts acting up, so I swapped them out for my glasses and thought nothing more of it. On Monday, I noticed that my vision was little blurry as I walked to work and by the time I got to work twenty minutes later, my eyes were pretty irritated. I thought it was my contacts again, so I went to the bathroom, rinsed them and put them back in. Finally, when it clearly wasn’t getting any better, I went to talk to my boss and she encouraged me to visit the doctor immediately.

I left work and made an appointment with the eye doctor. While I was waiting, the irritation was getting worse and it was really difficult to keep the affected eye open. When the doc took a look, she told me I had a large scratch dead center on my cornea, which meant no contacts for me for a while, as well as some prescription eye drops. It’s been a couple days now and I’m happy to say that my eye is doing a lot better with the meds and rest from my contacts!

While I am bummed about being without my contacts for a while, this little incident did give me the push I needed to finally buy a new pair of glasses (My current glasses are from oh, maybe 6+ years ago? Not to mention that that prescription is no longer current!). I took a trip down to the Warby Parker flagship yesterday morning and tried on a bunch of frames. I’ve already ordered a pair and they’re on their way to me right now! I’m so excited to have a pair of glasses that I actually like and feel comfortable wearing outside the house.

Tell me: Which one would you choose?
(I’ve already made my decision but I’m so curious to see which pair you guys prefer!)
