My new glasses…

Hello readers!

I hope everyone is having a good summer! Not that weather has been summer-like in the UK recently…

This post is, as you might expect, about me getting glasses.

It all started when I received a free eye health check voucher in with my Boots rewards vouchers. (You know the kind, money off and extra points on your store card, that kind of thing.) Anyway! I mentioned to my Grandma that I had been getting more and more clumsy, I was getting headaches after spending a long time reading or on the computer, which as an undergraduate in English Literature is a really bad thing…

So I booked an appointment to go and see the optician, something I haven’t done in years. Now, as someone who has always wanted glasses and never needed them, it came as quite a big shock that the optometrist recommended that I get a prescription pair of glasses!IMG_1949

It’s a very mild prescription, but in using them the past few days I can say that they have made a tremendous difference to the way I read! My friends could probably tell you that I frown when I’m reading books. I have been asked so many times what’s wrong, or if something interesting/confusing/frustrating is going on in the book, because I frown to focus my eyes on the words. Now that I have my glasses, I don’t do it anymore! Hurray for fewer wrinkles!

So the moral, I guess, of the story is, if you feel like something’s wrong, get it checked out. Trust your doctor/optometrist/chiropodist/whoever, to know if something’s up.

’til next time readers, happy reading!
