It finally happened. After years and years of somehow avoiding the inevitable, I need to embark on a hunt for a pair of glasses for everyday wear when my eyes feel strained.

Growing up I always felt so lucky that I didn’t need glasses mostly because I would’ve probably lost them, broken them or just flat out not worn them. Admittedly when I was in 5th grade I was curious and messed up a few letters in an eye test to warrant myself a slight enough sight issue to get a pair. I hated them and never wore them (also because I didn’t actually need them).

To be honest I have no idea where to start! I have never paid attention in the past to eyeglass companies and now that I need to start looking I can’t remember any of the ones I’ve heard people talk about in the past. When it comes to sunglasses I usually like round vs. square frames and something a little larger with my face shape. I’m thinking a lighter tortoise or even a lighter shade. A girl who used to work in our office had dark brown hair and clear frames and I always thought they looked so cute!

Most recently I had discovered Classic Specs for sunglasses. There’s always Warby Parker, but I need to find some that fit my face shape just right. I’m also looking for ones with anti-glare and maybe even come in a lighter frame.

What do you think? Do you have any recommendations? I can use all the help I can get!

christine- this is the year I too will need glasses , been feeling it …driving at night and just reading…please keep us in the loop regarding glasses search …what you checked out and what you finally brought brought – as I will be going in the next week for The “official ” eye test to see what the damage is before my specs search

good luck!

I also just got glasses last year. 5’2 small face, very small face. One thing I wish eye glasses people told me at first was to look at the numbers on the frames. They are actually measurements! The first number is frame width second is width of bridge and third is length of the arms. Honestly, look for some of the smallest numbers, and don’t be afraid to try on kids glasses for fit not look, just to get your numbers right!

I never knew that! Thank you for the tips that’s so helpful :)
