New Specs

Okay ya'll...do I have a story for you. Last weekend (Easter weekend) we were forced to Lenscrafters for new glasses and eye exam as a result of Drew's glasses breaking at the nosepiece. So, we went and I got my eyes checked. The eye doctor told me that I had a MAJOR change in my prescription. Most people change about 1/4 of a turn (or 1 step) in one year, but I am an overachiever I suppose. My left eye changed 4 steps and my right eye changed 2 steps and my astigmatism changed by 3 steps. So...as a result they had to special order my lenses. Yeah...they don't even keep my level of corrective lense in the store! Despite feeling bad about the eye change, we set out to find new frames for my new lenses. Hold on to your seats, folks. I got a RED pair! (Well, red in the academic sense...not like candy apple red or anything. They are a burgandy/wine color.) I will post a picture soon...

Hey Frances,

I've also been a Lenscrafters "Special Order" person for the last several years. I can imagine with that change, that you'll really notice the improvement when you get the new glasses.

I can't believe your prescription changed THAT much, crazy! Red glasses?! Sexy lady, ha! There IS a difference between candy apple red and burgundy...sounds like you went the more conservative route, but still different!
