Glasses: See Yourself Clearly

I have a confession to make, when I was younger I wanted to wear glasses. Maybe it was because both my parents wore them, or maybe I just thought they looked awesome - but whatever the reason I secretly wanted my own pair of eyeglasses.

Looking back, I don't think it was as much of a secret as I thought it was. Because in third grade when I told my mom that the board was getting fuzzy, she didn't believe me! She thought I messed up the eye test on purpose just so I could get my own pair. By fourth grade my eyes were so bad that my mom had to admit that I wasn't faking it, and she took me to the eye doctor to get my very own pair of prescription glasses.

What a happy day that was for me! There I was, a young girl about to see her secret dream finally become a reality. I got my prescription! Yea! Then I went out into the lobby and started trying on glasses. Not yea. The problem with trying on glasses when you can't see anything, is that you can't see what you look like in said glasses. And as attractive as the early 90's glasses were, they didn't look good on me.

I've been wearing glasses now for over 16 years, and I still have the same problem. How can I tell what looks good on me, when I can't see what I look like? Now that I can buy glasses online, this is no longer a problem. Glasses USA has a special feature, where I can upload my photos into a program and "try" on all of the different styles while still wearing my old pair. And I can share the photos with friends to see what they think before I buy.

Just for kicks I decided to see what my baby girl looked like in glasses. Here are my 3 favorites.

Goofy, but adorable.

So next time you need a new pair of glasses, head on over to Glasses USA and actually "see" what you are buying, before you buy it. And while you are there, use the code mommy10 to receive 10% off your purchase of prescription eyeglasses.
