Really Cool Glasses for the Vision Impaired (And Those Who Fake It)
I'm pretty paranoid about losing my vision. I was convinced that I couldn't clearly read the menu board at the Pita Pit, so I made an appointment with an ophthalmologist who told me I was insane and only very slightly near-sighted—not requiring any sort of prescription eyewear. In the third grade, I really wanted glasses so I bumped into walls for awhile and faked an eye exam.
Having not fooled my mother or the eye doctor, she finally gave in and bought me a pair of very dorky pink glasses sans prescription. The point being, even at an early age, I understood the importance of smart-looking accessories. Even my 20/40 vision won't stop me from buying several of this season's latest optical wear. Here are my not very discreet picks.
Nothing says "hey, I wear glasses!" like a very bright red pair.
If these don't make me look way smart—there's no hope.
Oversized and green—tres chic.
You could totally wear these with a pearl-strand croakie.
For a very fancy nerd.
Moscot glasses are cool, because they still produce all of their old styles from the 1920s.
I love a good tortoise shell.
This clear pair has cool vintage-like details.
My childhood self would have flipped out over this pink pair.
I'd wear these with a pink fuzzy sweater.
