I picked up my new glasses on Wednesday and have been trying desperately to convince myself since then that they weren’t a HUGE mistake.
But it’s not working.
The story: I went to a new doctor. She was nice, but the woman who was “helping” pick out frames obviously could not have cared less about what frames I chose. I guess I’m spoiled from previous places, because I’m used to getting a lot of input. She wasn’t even looking in my general direction most of the time.
I was also in a bit of a hurry, so I picked out a frame that I thought was really pretty. It felt a bit unstable, but I have lopsided ears so I thought that was the only problem.
I ordered the glasses, picked them up on Wednesday, had this same woman “fit” them, and went home. They don’t fit. They don’t really even come close to fitting. The temples are too short and don’t fit down over my ears.
They’re cute as hell, but for someone else’s face. (I got the green.)
Longer temples aren’t available for this frame, so I don’t know if there’s even a potential solution. I’m going back down after work today but am not feeling remotely confident about it, especially since it’ll be that same pointless woman again.
It wouldn’t be so bad, but they were $200 WITH my insurance coverage. Bah and humbug.
