|Pretty, right? Oh, and I voted today too!|
I made a few major errors with my last pair, which I purchased in 2011. I didn't understand that the Transitions lenses wouldn't work when I was in a car, nor would they really get as dark as I needed in direct sunlight. I'm a regular sunglasses wearer, and since I thought I'd mostly be wearing my glasses at night, I said I'd be able to get by. I had no idea I'd be wearing my glasses on such a regular basis then. I also bought a pair that I thought would help me have as much peripheral vision as possible. Wrong again. The bigger frames actually impeded my ability to see beyond them. Finally, I bought the pair that I thought was pretty cute. And they were, I've always gotten compliments on them, but they just didn't fit on my face and were endlessly sliding down the non-existent bridge of my nose.
It took the sales person about 7 seconds to see all of these issues when I went to a new glasses store, and she was able to present me with a bunch of better options in minutes. Less than 24 hours later, I have my new current-prescription-staying-on-my-nose-glare-resistant-subtly-purple glasses with matching sunglass clips.
And suddenly I have a whole new outlook on the world.
