I’m in alien territory here. Over the past few months my vision has become increasingly blurry, both when reading and when reading signs at a distance. I’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed a life of perfect vision so far, but those days are gone. I’m officially old. Had my first encounter with an optometrist yesterday, went through the whole dilation and eyeball pressure gizmo thing, and walked away with a prescription.
Now I’m about to join the “other” half of society and think about frames. No idea which way to go. Took some shots in a glasses store today. I think some of these are downright goofy, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Any of these look halfway decent, or should I keep shopping? Refer to row/column if you have opinions.
And yes, I’ve always wanted a monocle, but doesn’t seem like that’s going to be practical this time around.

Update: Decision made, new glasses now integrating into daily life. Thanks everyone for input and advice!
