When I was fourteen, a friend got glasses. I was envious. They made her look super smart.
I remember her surprise when she noticed the leaves on the trees. Before, leaves were jumbled and bunched together. They were a blur.
Thirty years later, I picked up my glasses.
While they say, “appearance is everything” and I hope I look super smart in my glasses, I was taken aback by the clarity of the text I read.
I have two pair of glasses. The lens in the tortoise shell Oakley frames makes it easier for me to drive and read signs. My Lafont glasses allow me to read.
