My sight has been going for years. It seems to have accelerated the last 5 or so but it's been going none the less. I have resisted surgery of any kind, mostly because it's still pioneer days with the Lasiks, but I also love wearing glasses. LOVE IT! Frames are the greatest accessory there is for a guy if you don't count guitar pedals. I'm a big fan of taking inexpensive sunglasses and swapping out the frames like the pair I have on above which are from a company called Mosley Tribes. When I say inexpensive I mean that I got them on sale at Gilt. Sometimes I actually wear my dark sunglasses indoors or after dark and that is because I suffer from macular degeneration which is a slow form of creeping blindness. Essentially all light becomes too bright and it makes my eyes water and itch and I blink too much. The dark glasses make my globes feel like they've been submerged in cool water. Yes I look like an asshole to some and a jazz musician to others but at this point in my life I could give a fuck. I love my sunnys (australian term) and I'd wear them to bed. My go to pair of darks are The Deacon by Oliver Peoples. Like the hat, finding the right pair of sunglasses took awhile to find but when I did I stopped looking and bought 3 pair. The Deacons are my jam. But with the clear indoor glasses I'm still playing around with cheap frames till I find the ones that work. Glasses like all clothes are an opportunity to say something about yourself so get after it you optically challenged fashion beast. If you have questions ask em here. ODE!!
UPDATE: Just after I posted this and then reposted to all of the usual places I was alerted by several people that there is a amazing Glasses and Frames site that will not only take your perscription but also let you try on and return their frames. They are called Warby Parker and they look awesome. I recall a friend telling me about this before. Not only are the glasses cool and retro but they also have a buy a pair donate a pair program. I will be purchasing a pair today. Here's to the internet community!
