eyes eyes eyes....
Right off topic and not very interesting post today, because I'm feeling beaten. Eighteen months and eight adjustments later my 'new' glasses are still pretty unwearable - unless, of course, I'm prepared to hold them up with one hand, or to walk with my head tilted back, squinting under the frames. The people doing the adjustments seem to be beaten too. Their parting shot today was 'Have you considered contact lenses?'
They're very sweet people. They patiently try new twists to the frames, and speak to me in the tone you'd use to a panicked dog. The problem is that they sold me the glasses. I picked some frames and they checked to see if these were good frames before I bought them. So no-one can quite tell me this was a bad choice.
At least I've learned a bit more about what kind of frames I need to look for next time .... great big plastic old-lady glasses. I'm hoping I can find some in lilac or beige!
