A pair of vintage glasses

Yes, I’ve finally done it, only about 15 months late, I’ve put in for an eye test! Needed doing for several reasons, in all honesty.

Firstly, I know my eyesight has deteriorated again, I’ve long since needed reading glasses for close up stuff, but my regular pair are getting less good, for slightly further afield, and lets face it, I’m getting old, and my eyes are going.

Secondly, the anti glare reflection stuff on these has well and truly worn off, leaving a bit of a smear on the glasses, so they need changing anyway, regardless of any sight issues.

So I gave in tonight, and booked it, even though it will not be until after pay day on Friday, I am that practical! Mind, there is also the fact that the only other day off I have before then, is Thursday, when I’m getting my hair done, and nails too. But, in the near future, new glasses.

And before you ask, no, the glasses, or the frames are not genuine vintage, just a modern take on them. Of course, the fun challenge was, finding a pair that look like they are from the 30’s though. And lets face it, Jean Harlow never wore glasses, did she?

Wrong, though this may have been an absolute one off, in a radio station studio

And so, when I found this pair at Specsavers…

Well, they make a pretty good match, dont you think?

As Specsavers do 2 for 1 at this price level, I might get a more modern second pair, or another vintage style look, I will have to wait and see.

The blessing today, over lenses back then, they are no longer glass! So yes, I might really look like a certain 30’s movie star when I hit Hollywood lol!
