Gah, glasses cost an absolute fortune! I lost my glasses the other day and, foolishly, I've never had a spare pair. I am quite pissed off at losing those glasses. Not only were they my very first pair of glasses (I've had them for about nine years now), but the glasses case contained an even older (clicky) pencil which I was moderately fond of. I am not amused.

Still, I arranged an eyetest for this morning and had a new pair of glasses by this evening, which is quite good (it should be, for the price!). This pair are just a pair of cheap frames with the normal lenses. I've also decided to get a nice frame with a fancy anti-reflective, scratch-resistant coating, but that pair will take a few days.

It's a good thing that my eyesight isn't really all that bad. I was able to get by fairly happily without them, but it's amazing just how much difference that a little bit of extra eye-effort can make, when spread across two or three days. I'm certainly glad to have glasses again.

Oh, the optician that I went to has a website, but it's, um, a little minimalist Smiley face
