Just recently my work (where I no longer work, but I receiving the benefits for until Tim starts getting his) added optical to their plans. Hallelujah! I have been sporting the same glasses and lenses for 7 years. I take good care of my stuff, but you are bound to have to use a t-shirt at some point to clean them during that time, guaranteeing some fine scratches.
I thought I would use this opportunity to go down memory lane with regards to my vision correction devices.
I got my first prescription in grade 3, and here I am in grade 4 with my very first pair:
A couple years later I downsized. This is my grade 6 school photo:
This one is from grade 9 when nose pads were out and plastic frames were in:
The year after I graduated highschool, I convinced my mom to get me one last pair, before I had to start paying for it on my own. These are the ones that served me for the past 7 years:
And just this afternoon, these ones landed on my front step:
Apparently my prescription changed an itsy bitsy amount, and got a little better. Even though it was just a tiny change, looking through these new lenses makes it seem like I am seeing in HD. Colours are crisper and lines are sharper. It’s amazing what a few little scratches on lenses and a little bit of a wrong prescription can change the view.
And can I say how easy shopping at Clearly Contacts is? I took advantage of their “Get Your First Pair Free” sale. It ends tomorrow, so you can still get in on the deal! I did have to pay for the lenses though, since my prescription requires special things done, but the benefits will cover it! Hooray!
Nice glasses….we’ve made MANY purchases through Clearly Contacts in the last couple of years – and have never been sorry.
Ha! That was great! So few pairs considering the length of time.
They look great, Larissa!
great glasses who makes them ? What style are they ? I looked thru all the glasses @ clearly contacts can’t find yours
According to my receipt, the product is Ltede 1012. They could be discontinued. I think they were on sale when I got them.
