I broke my glasses while at the gym LAST September. I’ve been blind all the way up until now. But it does feel great now that I have a new pair of glasses so I can focus in classes more and actually see the board without sitting in the front row!
Let me tell you, if you break your glasses get them fixed ASAP! I was too scared to tell my mom that I broke them because I constantly break my glasses somehow or lose them. But when I told her she was not mad at all, which was a relief. But I felt silly because I wouldn’t have had to let my eyes suffer for months at a time when I could have just told her when it happened! LESSON = If you break your glasses, get them fixed immediately!
These are the glasses I decided to get. I like the thick temple pieces because it makes them look a bit more stylish on top of allowing me to actually see what is in front of my face! And they fit my face well and correspond to my facial shape well. An embarrassing anecdote: I was walking to class one day and my friend called me from down the hall, but I didn’t know who it was because I couldn’t see. So I end up walking all the way to them until I’m up in their face because I couldn’t see long-distances and everything was blurry! So embarrassing! I would just say “hey” to people who said “hey” to me in the halls, without knowing who they were!
I love my new glasses. People compliment them all the time! But most importantly I can see again.
TIP: Keep your eyes healthy! My mom always told me to not be on the computer so much so my eyes wouldn’t hurt from looking at the screen and I didn’t listen. Guess I payed for that mistake! But seriously, take good care of your eyes. Don’t take your vision for granted!
