I've never had terrible eye sight, which I am incredibly grateful about as a person with juvenile diabetes. The likelihood of developing poor eye sight tends to be a problem for people with the condition. I hope that my health continues in the future and for the sake of this post, I hope you all maintain or acquire good health for the foreseeable future.
That said, when looking for glasses I am apprehensive to spend a ton of money on a pair, because I hardly use them. I have a theory that my eyes will remain stronger the less I use my glasses, because I will be less reliant on the help they provide. I think it's proven itself so far.
My glasses are mostly put to use when I am driving or when I am sitting in the back of a classroom and cannot see the whiteboard or PowerPoint slide, whatever the matter. I am slightly near-sighted.
I had heard of Zenni Optical in the past and was apprehensive about ordering a pair of glasses online. Online shopping used to be a personal fear-factor of mine. It induced my nerves, but I've come to really enjoy shopping online in the past year because it is so accessible for a person on the go. And I usually am a person on the go.
Yes, sometimes you don't get the size or quality you thought you'd get from online shopping, but overall I love how vast the options are on the web compared to at the store, which may lead you to jumping from place to place trying to find your desired product. There's nothing quite like being able to sit at your desk in p.j.'s buying the things you need or desire from the comfort of your home at any time you prefer.
While browsing and during the ordering process, I questioned whether or not I had measured my pupillary distance correctly, but I managed to. This was my biggest freak out moment, but it's fairly easy to do. If you don't find it self-explanatory, ask your optometrist how to measure the distance, Google it or seek out a more knowledgeable individual, possibly a person who has ordered glasses online before.
These specs fit great and they only cost me $34.95, including shipping. All I needed to do was pick up my prescription from my optometrist to correctly fill it out online with Zenni. Easy!
