I'm sure you all care about my eyeglasses so I will talk about them some more.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

So I went and got new glasses. My prescription, surprisingly? unchanged in 5 years. *beam*
So I'm getting these:

Yes, they do not appear to have rims. That is because there are not rims around the lenses. Because of the fun involved in making holes in lenses and then sticking screws through the holes, they should be ready Friday or Saturday. Nope, I didn't go to Lenscrafters. seismic recommended a place on O'Farrell: Glitter Optics.
Fairly good prices (not quite as good as Lenscrafters); TERRIFIC selection, and extremely helpful. I'd forgotten what going to a private optometrist's was like.
  • I hear ya! I have two pairs of glasses--can't see a thing without them! Now, I match my glasses to my outfits. That's what happens when you've worked in the eyecare industry!
    • Heheheh. At some point in the future, I'll likely get the same frames in the black as well, so that I can mix-and-match a bit better.

      In other news, I was astonished to get upgraded to 1.70 index lenses. I didn't even know they MADE such things!

      • Yeah, those are high index lenses, which are optimal for rimless frames! :)
        • Yeah: that high didn't exist, back when I last bought a pair!
          Maybe these glasses will also last 5 years...
