I went to Specsavers yesterday with Karin and looked at frames, and had an eye exam. My eyes have gotten worse in the intervening 6-7 years since I got my current glasses, but not too much and everything looked "good" ...or as good as things can look when you can't see shit without glasses. Specsavers prices are nearly HALF what the other eyeglass places offer. I don't understand how they can stay in business but they must make up for it by getting twice as many customers as everyone else.

Karin kept trying to get me to try different styles, but I didn't like any of them: too round, too big, too plastic, too crazy colored. I found these and will probably get them. I have to go back and actually order the glasses. Not sure if I'll get that done today or tomorrow. They have a deal that is basically "Buy 1 pair, get the second pair nearly free"...you just pay for the treatment on the glasses which is comparatively little.
red glasses

This isn't the exact photo...I couldn't find the right one. They are similar in style/shape to what I have now, but these have no frame along the bottom edge and the earpieces are fancier, plus they are Flexi.

I found a second pair I liked too:

But now I have to make a decision and I don't know what to do...since I can get a second pair for so little, should I get the gold ones as well as the red ones, or should I get a pair of sunglasses for the second pair, or a pair of "terminal glasses" for use at work when I'm just sitting at my computer all day long? The first pair will be progressive, regardless.

I have a pair of terminal glasses now, that I've had for years and I never use them, so that seems kind of stupid to get another pair. And I rarely wear sunglasses, but it could be because the ones I have are clip-on style that fit over my current glasses (and make them heavier). They're also quite skinny like the glasses they cover, which isn't ideal for sunglasses. Here are the ones I liked best:

So, I have to decide: 2 pairs of progressive glasses in different styles (will I really switch between them?) or 1 pair progressive and 1 pair sunglasses (which can also be progressive for a little extra)? I don't know what to doooooooooo.
