Here's a closeup of the flowers on the side. There are little rhinestones in the center of the flowers and on some of the petals. Very feminine. Very Sarah. The color of these frames is burgundy with a lighter shade as a contrast. Would you say they qualify as "rose colored glasses"?
Here's a look at my new glasses. I found a pretty pair with a little more pizzazz than the black frames I had previously (which, by the way, are still lost). I went all out on this new pair. They are scratch resistant and anti glare for my computer work. They are also the lightest lenses available. I had to pay a lot extra for that but I figured it was worth it. After all my ears are already carrying the weight of my hearing aids. Best of all, these glasses darken when I go outside so I don't need to carry sunglasses with me.
The biggest change for me is this is my first pair of bifocals. Yes, the eye doctor said the B word. But I was fine with it. I was actually looking forward to it. For awhile now, I've been taking off my glasses when looking at things up close (which may have contributed to my other pair getting lost). I really wanted to get glasses which would allow me to see both close and far. This pair of bifocals has no lines so I had to train myself to see the different distances through them. But it's been a few weeks and I don't even give it a thought now.
Having the proper eyeglasses (rather than the old, old pair I was wearing after I lost my black ones) has even made an improvement in my hearing. As the badge above says, "I hear with my eyes." While I was wearing the backup pair, my hearing definitely took a dive. It's so good to see things in sharp focus again.
