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.
  • Private Optometrists are nice; I go to Eye Q in Noe Valley, which fortunately participates in my employer's Vision Plan ... but not my husband's, and that ain't cheap. But! They have an excellent selection of frames and last time round I got frames by LaFont and I <3 them.

    My experience with rimless glasses was less than optimal, and I have a coworker who also had this problem: eventually the holes drilled for the screws to hold the frames on start to craze. Cracks started radiating out from where the frames attached. Not too big a deal on the sides but I found this completely irritating to my field of vision around the nosepiece. These are nice frames - I hope you don't have the same trouble!
    • Hopefully I won't have that experience! That sounds thoroughly frustrating.
