I have been wearing my glasses as of late. My contact lens saw fit to split in two right in my eye, (go figure), and with work and bills, I haven't been able to get to the eye doc. The one day I did try, they doctor didn't take my insurance, even though I was given that specific doctor's name by the insurance carrier. Someone PLEASE update the damn rolls! It can't be that hard.
So, I have been wearing the glasses I got back in 2001. They are quite beat up and bent, but they still have the right prescription. I always got contacts because they just worked better in the jobs that I did. Cooking, cleaning, kids......... they are non glasses kinds of things. Yeah, I could do it with glasses, (and I am for right now.), but I find it easier with out them. Anyhoo.... I am going to get a contact exam this weekend...... at a walk in place..... that I will pay for out of my own pocket.... because I am tired of going to places that don't accept my insurance...... even though the insurance company SAYS it does. I am also thinking about getting my glasses replaced. The lenses are a little scratched, but still workable, yet they'll probably want to replace the whole shebang because of the length of time I've had them. That's great, but that would mean I'd need to find a new pair of frames. That might be a problem.
You may not see me in them often, but when you do, I want the frames of my glasses to say, "Watch out world! Blonde & Fabulous is coming your way!!" Something tells me that is a rather tall order for a simple pair of frames. Or maybe a nice pair of "naughty librarian" frames.... that would make HHH happy! Something tells me I'll be sitting in front of the frame display with my jaw on the floor at the prices though. (I have to buy the frames, the lenses are covered.) The other day I saw a simple pair, not much on them frill wise, that cost $180. $180?? $180!!!!!! What the hell were they made of? Sunshine and fairy shit? Solid gold? There is no Earthly reason a bunch of wires and screws should cost that much, especially when it's something someone needs for a good quality of life! Maybe I should just buy a few more boxes of contact lenses and keep the old glasses.
That would be much cheaper.
