Astigmatism

Shirt: the one I wearΒ all the timeΒ from a local boutique, Cardigan: Gap, Pants: Banana Republic, Shoes: Reflections, Belt: Forever 21, Glasses: Converse, Braided Bracelet: c/o Jessica N. Designs, Wrap Bracelet: c/o Lee La La

It turns out I have astigmatism.
Not a stigmatism.
And yes, it took me 27 years to learn the difference.
So I got me some fancy schmancy glasses.
And now I’mΒ trying to get used to them.
Holla if you wear glasses!

I’m linking this outfit up to The Pleated Poppy and Real Momma, Real Style.

    I’ve been an all-day glasses wearer since 6th grade! Astigmatism hangs out in my eyes like it’s cool.

    A glass wearer here too, since I was an iddy biddy girl. Am blind in my left eye and have a bad seeing right eye so really need them. Sometimes I wear a (yes one lol) contact lens too, just for fun. These look very good on you. I can’t wear a dark frame, makes my face washed out so wear either rimless or a light colored one πŸ™‚

    I have worn glasses since middle school and LOVE them. I also have Astigmatism. A few years ago, I tried contacts and people did not recognize me at work. It was pretty funny! You look great, Love the frames!

    i think the glasses are adorable. i used to have two-toned, cat-eye glasses about 10-12 years ago (during the Lisa Loeb era). I totally loved them. I love yours as well. Rock’em girl!

    I’ve got astigmatism too πŸ™‚ Finally committed to the glasses in college when I couldn’t see the chalkboard to take notes and didn’t wanna fail!! haha! Once I put my glasses on, I couldn’t believe what I wasn’t seeing! I had no idea my apartment was so dusty or my floor so dirty…..gross! With the glasses on, I could see it all so clearly. Now, I’m 33 and have worn glasses every since. A few years ago I heard about saving $$ by ordering glasses online…..what?? I wanted some cute ones and didn’t wanna spend a bunch of money at the optical shop so I tried it. Been doing it every since! Have ordered at least 10 pairs. The advantage for me is that because they are cheap – I can have many pairs to match my many moods or outfits….yay for a fashion statement! I took the plunge after reading this blog: http://glassyeyes.blogspot.com/
    I’ve ordered from http://www.goggles4u.com and http://www.zennioptical.com both several times with no troubles πŸ™‚
    Your glasses are super cute, BTW – keep rockin’ ’em for all of us glasses girls!

    I have been wearing glasses since I was about 5 and have a severe astigmatism. Mine is so bad that even weighted contacts would not stay put so I am a glasses wearer. My best advice: Buy a pair of prescription sunglasses that you really love, especially if you suffer from migraines. Once you get a great pair, you will see your migraines and carsick episodes drop and you will never want to be outdoors without them. I lost my Ralph Lauren sunglasses in the lake this year and have been depressed about it since…

    Cute glasses! I wear them too. I can’t wear contacts anymore (chronic dry eyes and steroid drops freak me out) so I got a cute pair and finally learned to wear them daily. Not so bad πŸ™‚ Now if I could just afford a couple more pairs, I’d love to swap them out.

    I have an astigmatism in one eye – the last time I went to get my eyes checked they gave me contacts specifically for astigmatism, and it’s bigger than normal contacts – kinda weird to get used to. (Although I’m more likely to wear my glasses than my contacts – they’re just easier)

I want to get a new pair with a little bigger frames, but alas can’t spend the moolah….I am sorry to say I don’t wear my glasses nearly as much as I should!!! I LOVE your pair!

    You look great in those glasses! Wish I could pull off great frames like that! And as an optometrist’s wife, I feel it is my duty to confuse you more about astigmatism! Technically you have astigmatism, not “an” astigmatism πŸ™‚ It’s like saying you have an asthma. Sounds so awkward without “an” I know…I still mess it up. Ok, my duty is done! (you can ignore this comment and leave it as is, I just feel better now).

    Who ever said that “guys don’t make passes at girls that where glasses”? psshaw! Girl, you look adorable! I have an astigmatism, too AND get this! One eye is near sighted and the other is far sighted!
    K, here is MY deal! I get a new pair of glasses when I have my yearly eye exam and then, because I’m a girl, I order different colored frames and lenses online, to wear with different outfits! Seriously, you just fill out the online form with your prescription. (Call your optometrist and ask for your paper prescription. Make sure you ask for your PD.) Here are a few sites I’ve used: Goggles4u Eyeglasses, EyeBuyDirect) Just Google “buying eyeglasses online”. They often send out emails for BOGO offers. It’s a fun way to dress up your cute tops with matching specs! ~ jo

    Ooh… I do, I do! And for the same reason… I have like a half of a point prescription in one eye, and none in the other… but I have an astigmatism that causes major migraines and focus issues if I go glasses-less … I first got them in middle school, then (unsuccessfully) tried contacts, then quit wearing them altogether… I survived through college, but when I started working a “real” job in front of a computer screen, alas, I had to go back to the four-eyed life. πŸ™‚
