Speccy foureyes!
Must up date the user pics that show my glasses as I picked up the new ones today. Turns out that despite not wanting trendy rectangular ones ( the upper and lower frame edges distract as I have good peripheral vision ) I ended up with some that are about 1/4 to 3/8 inch less in height than the old ones while being about the same width.

They look OK, so I'll probably try and do a pic to use as a userpic.

Off on a driving job for little brother tomorrow. His regular part-time drivers don't want it as it's too near Christmas. If they don't want the money, I'll have it! :-))

Current Mood: busy busy

This is why I *still* haven't bought a new pair despite the old pair now falling to bits! I don't want "trendy little slits" that seem to be all the fashion now - I *want* pieces of glass that give me proper peripheral vision!!

Haven't used them much for driving today ( only reason I have them ) but the job for brother will include lots of driving in daylight and darkness so I'll update this afterwards.

Well, as I wear mine all the time, I'd just like a pair that I can see through properly and do all the things I normally do properly like I do now - for this I want peripheral vision that works - it doesn't seem that they want to give us such a simple thing these days :-(

I'm convinced it isn't really a "fashion" at all, these new smaller specs - I think it's just a way of spending less on the materials. Let's face it, if they are all that's on offer you get no choice, and then they can say "look how popular they are" when they sell.

Now that you have new glasses can you see your way clear to lending me a fiver?
