wives can relate to this

I would like to share this image that I found online since this is a little bit related to my earlier post. :-) Pretty sure there are some times when we would like our partners to see things our way. However, no eyeglasses can ever provide for this intangible need. Truly, communication is still the best way to address any type of problem or argument you have with your partner. Right!

his eyeglasses as a necessary expense

As far as I can remember, my husband has been wearing prescription glasses ever since the first day I saw him in the same office we were working before. Some people who would talk about him would actually refer to him as the "guy with eyeglasses" when they would forget his name but I must say, though, that even then, I already knew there's something more to him than just being that "guy wearing eyeglasses". I guess it just can't be helped that his eyeglasses are already part of his personality. He's been wearing them since college. More importantly, he just can't leave the house, face the computer, or read books without them.

Incidentally, some time this year, he said goodbye to his old pair and bought a new one. We thought it could last for another year before he would be able to buy his next one. It was like our little girl decided it when she grabbed the eyeglasses while he was carrying her and just let the pair fall to the ground. Anyway, we can't do anything about it but let it go. The one in charge at the optical shop said repairing it would cost almost just like new. More importantly, he badly needed to wear one as soon as possible because he definitely can't see well without eyeglasses. He needs his prescription eyewear especially when he's driving his motorcycle out in the road or when he is working online.

Certainly, his eyewear will always be a necessary expense that we can't put off when it needs replacement. Unfortunately, we just noticed that the price of prescription eyeglasses at the nearest optical shops are getting too pricey these days that I told my husband we need to try buying his next pair of glasses online.

Online shopping is already the trend nowadays and that certainly includes shopping for eyewear. Buying prescription glasses online shouldn't be a problem for him because he already knows what specifics to enter into his order (his prescription type, pupillary distance, etc.).

We'll be asking mother-in-law as well in case she wants to upgrade to a new pair to make the most out of the shipping cost.

As for me, even though it's quite tempting to buy fashionable plano eyeglasses for myself, I guess I'll have to be content with not having found the need to wear one just yet. :-)

the need to wear eyeglasses

My husband lost his 20/20 vision when he was still in college. He said that it was caused by too much exposure to computers since he was a computer science student back then. At first he thought he was sick when he ended up dizzy, having headaches and felt like vomiting after he stayed in front of the computer for long hours but when he told the symptoms to his mother, she told her that he might have an eye problem. To correct the problem, he had to wear eyeglasses from that time on. His first eyeglasses back then didn't provide the best solution to his needs since he only had ordinary eyeglasses lens but he had already remedied the problem when he bought another pair of eyeglasses that are suited for computer users.

Looking for a reliable optical shop for our specific needs is not that difficult, the internet is a great help to learn more about eyeglasses. As for me, I used to have a 20/20 vision but when I got pregnant in the middle of 2008 and had my eye examination during an annual physical exam, I couldn't read from the eye chart more clearly anymore. Add to that, my work which involved working in front of the computer everyday has rendered my vision in a less than perfect condition. Some say that it was caused by some changes in my hormones. I guess I'll be wearing my own prescription glasses one of these days. How about you guys? Did you ever see the need to wear eyeglasses?

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
