My New Pair of Glasses

I'm terrible at taking selfies and hate getting my picture taken, anyway. So, here's a photo of my new pair of glasses, propped against its case. I love 'em, they fit my face really well and I can see so much better. The glare-resistant coating is a real blessing, especially for cutting the snow-glare we get in Michigan.Today, it is around 0 degrees Fahrenheit, with bright sunshine flooding down! LOL

Those are very nice looking glasses. We received about 5-6 inches of snow. Today, it's only barely flurries but very cold here at about 10 degrees with the sun out!

My older glasses are all scratched up and they're seven years old! I only where them when I'm driving or reading.

@Courtlynn Yes, I do. That way, the snow glare is cut, so I can see better.

Those glasses are serving you well!!! We have 2 F today. I do like the sunshine, though.

That's what my friends in Iowa and Wisconsin are saying too. Think I'll enjoy the "chilly" 50 degrees here in CA. Oh, the glasses? They look...like glasses! I have the nerdy looking going right now but don't like my glasses. They're graduated lenses and don't integrate well.

My first pair of blended bi-focals were wonderful. This pair, I haven't adjusted to them quite yet. I don't like a bottom frame, on me. They will be fine, for reading and driving, that's when I use them.

@kobesbuddy My new pair (meaning about a year old) still makes me slighty off balance when I walk, but they're great for reading. My older pair is better for distance stuff, but there is a big scratch on the right lens. I've been "experimenting" with that today.

They look like a nice pair. I like the anti-glare for when I'm in a place with bright fluorescent lighting.

Bright lighting is damaging to the eyes, that's what I've been told.

Through Jay's work, we have eye-glass coverage. We are allowed one free pair, each year. Anything extra, tint, anti-glare, we pay for out of our pocket.

I wish it was 0 here. We're still -11 F with a -22 wind chill. We're in the deep freeze still. Your glasses look very nice. I'm glad they cut down the snow glare.
