the good news is that in 5 years, my prescription has not changed much (about a quarter of a step). also, the right eye (which has a much stronger prescription because of a childhood injury) is no longer hemorrhaging and looks completely healed. though it's still a bit lazy. the BAD news, and if you wear glasses, you know...is that they are NOT CHEAP! i used to complain about lenscrafters' prices, but the truth is, most insurance doesn't cover the actual glasses. and by most i mean tricare.
the first glasses i picked were amazing. they are both adrienne vittadini.
|obviously, the bling was required...|
|these were the winners, but the front was dark red, and the sides were black. right where the colors meet is a little line of rhinestones... perfect :)|
but... those were $439 after the lenses and glaze. sheesh. so i went on base to see if there was anything comparable. then i found these vera wang beauties.
|they showed me these in tortoise and gold.|
i'm not sure about them yet because i'm more a black/silver than a brown/gold girl. they are ordering them in red with a darker temple so the wait for new glasses will have to go one a bit longer. these cam to about $350. which is better.
and i want to get some sunglasses.but i have the feeling Sergeant J won't let me part with $500 of our dollars... at least not all at once!
