Glasses

All the vertical lines in my world are slightly curvy this evening. Bookshelves bulge out slightly and nothing seems quite in focus even though it is. I'd forgotten what the process of habituating to new glasses is like.

But so far I'm pleased: I don't look like someone else when I see myself in the mirror. The glasses look like they belong on me, yet they aren't too similar to my previous pair. (My previous pair was still going strong, but the enamel was starting to chip from years of use.) And hopefully, within the next day-or-so, I'll feel like my eyes are fully in focus again.

P.S. This may be one of the only times I've mentioned glasses and not had it be dissertation related!

I wish that I had new glasses, because one of my bookcases really is bulging out slightly. I'm currently hoping that it'll go away if I ignore it.

When did you last get new glasses? If it's been more than 3 years, you really should go in for news ones anyways.

I last had my eyes checked in the summer (had the same procedures done you blogged about a few months back). My prescription has changed only very slightly from the lenses I currently have. However, my frames are really getting ramshackle, getting new ones was going to be one of my Xmas projects but I haven't managed to get around to it yet.
