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 have had rimless glasses before. They break if you so much as look at them funny. You breath wrong? BREAK. The sun's too bright? BREAK. It's a full moon? BREAK. A possum in Brazil has the hiccoughs? BREAK.

    *more predictions of doom and gloom*
    • Oh Darn it!
      I wish I'd asked for advice before this post, you know?
      • I blame brain fart. See, I'm totally against glasses without rims because they're aewful but didn't think you were considering this

        Because I think of them as glasses without FRAMES. Because I is special. And when you said rimless it didn't click and then I saw a picture and trhought AW hell.

        TBH though, my rimless glasses were also hella spindly. But they lasted a week. A weeeeeek!
        • Jaysus, just a week??? That'd definitely suck.

          However, these have a 1-month return policy attached, so I think I'm safe. :)
