I've had to wear glasses or contact lenses constantly for almost 10 years now, but in more recent years, I've been wearing contacts almost all day every day... until earlier this year. I started my new job and suddenly couldn't wear my contacts when looking at a computer screen without getting horrendous migraines, despite doing this previously! Numerous trips to the opticians didn't get to the bottom of the issue, so I had to start wearing my glasses to work.
I've always just had the one pair of glasses, as I only ever used them on rare occasions - usually when I first get up in the morning, rather than blindly stumbling towards the shower. Relying on my glasses every day made me realise how much I needed multiple pairs - worrying that my one pair would break, or I'd lose them, and I'd be stuck not being able to see! I also wasn't sure what I was going to do when it came to summer - wearing contacts with sunglasses is easy... but it's not so easy when you're relying on glasses all the time. So GlassesShop* came to the rescue, with their range of super cheap glasses and prescription sunglasses.
I chose the frames I liked, input my prescription details on the website and before I knew it my new glasses and sunglasses had dropped through my letterbox, safely protected and ready to wear. I chose the Heloise Wayfarer sunglasses* and the Weymouth Cat Eye glasses*. The process was simple and delivery was quick - having never bought glasses online before, I'll definitely be doing it again. It makes it so easy to refresh your style - glasses are such a big part of your look when you wear them all the time, why shouldn't we mix it up every-so-often and splash out on some new frames? I'm definitely going to be!
