By request...

I got my new glasses yesterday, and ristin asked me to put a photo on my LJ and some comments. For the rest of you, who are likely to be bored silly by this, I have hidden it behind an LJ cut.

(Wholly unflattering photo of me--I hadn't slept much the night before.)

They're light. (As I expected because they're made out of titanium.) They're so light that after a while I hardly notice I'm wearing them, except for the impact on my periphery vision. The first time I got to see myself properly in my new glasses yesterday and I thought, "Neh." Maybe I'll look better in them when in a shirt and tie? My old round glasses formed such a significant part of my self image, it will take me a while to adjust. I'm told these are much more fashionable, and I wanted smaller lenses anyway.

Byron just weighed them. My old glasses came in at 24g and my new ones (with a stronger prescription) are 17g.

They're allright. But I'm not picky about glasses. ozkangaroo thought my glasses sucked. :-P

I like them! Switching to smaller frames takes a little getting used to. I did it about 10 months ago, and the new glasses just felt, odd, for several days. Like you said, the peripheral vision mostly. But after a little while they feel just as natural as the old ones.

I still have my old glasses, but I wear my contacts most of the time anyway. I'm convinced that my glasses make me look like an owl.

I tried contacts (Ristin may be better able to explain why) but it just didn't work for me. I could touch my eyes (though I wasn't big on it) but I could never get the damned things to stay on my eyes. Everyone tells me glasses suit me anyway.

From the photo, glasses do suit you.
