i got new sunglasses!!!
Permalink   
 


yes, today i pickedup my new rayban's! i am soooo happy. these are like... amazing sunglasses that totally cut out glare, but don't make everything so dark and change the colour of stuff. dude they are awesome! i love them! and the lenses are glass, and everything is so clear thru them. they are so great!


and on another note, i think i need a new left contact, grrr, i've had these, what a month or so? grrr i have an appt with my optometrist tomorrow... my left lens keeps slipping off my cornea grrr and i keep feeling like it's gonna pop out! ugh!

no idea... they are chicks ones though! but yeah i shall have a look in a while if i can find my receipt (when i feel like moving) and let you know.


however i showed them to my optometrist who told me off for getting glass lenses... she said NEVER get glass lenses! oh well.


and i'm getting a new right lens, and she can't seem to figure out why my left one is slipping off my cornea as she said the fit is FINE and she is gonna talk to the people at the lab and ask people see if anyone has any ideas. lol. so i'm waiting for a phone call...

What does she mean "don't get glasses lenses"? whats the problem with that?


On another point about your lenses poping off... i am sure your lens just needs to be tweeked...


catch ya later (but got a lot on!)

like the lenses in the glasses she said don't get GLASS, get plastic... get what i mean? and mine have glass lenses not plastic or polycarbonate or whatever it is they use... anyhoo...


it's weird coz like, she can't figure out what needs to be tweaked... lol. it didn't slip down today but it kept going off centre and blurring my vision until i blinked or pushed it back into place. grrr. i think i freaked out a customer when in themiddle of serving her i stopped and closed my eye and tears were running down my face and i was like ow ow ow ow ow something in my eye!

oh yeah she said glass is not good coz if you get hit in the face... and you have only one eye that works, it's always gonna be that one that gets the glass shatter in it. but meh, none of my eyes work anyhow. well ok my left one works better than the right one...

Can you believe it... you find sun glasses that helps and now theres a reason your adviced not to wear them!!!


This kc is such a funny thing!!


I think, its up to you beth, I mean you really need to be unlucky to have kc and then glasses that may break on you while wearing them!!


And please note (as a friend) that your lenses should not be moving around so much beth, I personally would try a macros lens.

yes i know! she's looking into it for me... i'll see what she has to say and ask her about other lenses too. she has always said my left eye is the hardest to fit coz the cone isn't central (which is good for my vision as i see better out of that eye) but she can't correct it as well either. i get 6/9 correct in my left eye, and i think 6/6 in my right. but also, i really really can't afford to be paying for THREE different sets of contacts in like well, much less than a year. we'll see how we go!


yeah i'm wearing the sunglasses. i didn't pay $170 to not wear them. also, i mean, have you ever broken a pair of glasses (apart from if the screws have come loose and a lens falls out?). i haven't. glass lenses also scratch less, which is good for me coz i don't look after them - i like to leave them on my head, or under my hand brake, or thrown in my bag not in the case. etc. and since the frames are shaped so that screws don't hold in the lenses i think they are ok.
