Growing up, I desperately wanted glasses. In my opinion, eyeglasses instantly upped your desirability much in the way cigarettes infused 50s rebels with inherent cool. I’d borrow friend’s glasses in hopes of impairing my perfect 20/20 vision. My efforts (or puberty) eventually caught up to me and at twelve, I was diagnosed with myopia, or near-sightedness. Armed with my new visual gadgetry, I was ready to let popularity wash over me. Unfortunately, nerds aren’t aren’t considered popular, a fact I soon realized.
Fast forward 15 years and I’m still the same geek struggling to find his footing. To my optician’s chagrin, I rarely wear my glasses. But when I do I like testing out new varieties. The ones I’m wearing here are from this fantastic brand called Frameri. Here is the No. 1 reason you should know Frameri – they craft glasses for people who actually wear glasses. Their interchangeable lens system means you no longer have to buy a new pair when your prescription changes; you simple place a new order for the lens and – voila! – when it arrives you pop it into your trusty, favorite frames. Pretty cool, right?
If you get a chance, check out Frameri. You won’t regret it… and your future self will be thanking you.
