hey you blind lady!

So you guys may remember this post where I talked about how I realized I couldn't see anything anymore and was looking to get some new glasses and was asking for your opinions? Then you might remember this post where I got the glasses and they were WAY too big for my face. I also love that I was shopping for new frames before I ever went to the eye doctor haha, but anyways... I finally sucked it up and went. I seriously thought my astigmatism had just got worse over the years. But I hadn't been to the eye doctor since I was in high school, and boy was I in for a surprise. Apparently I didn't know just how much I wasn't seeing! 
My eyes had changed so much over the years I was actually nearsighted now! Oh and I still have an astigmatism but in only my left eye, which was causing my brain to see two different images which thus confuses the brain, making it choose an eye to use to see through. So basically I have only been using ONE EYE for who knows how long?!?! So guess who has to wear glasses everyday all day for the next two months to train my brain to use both of my eyes?! yup. I was going to just use my old coach frames but when I walked out of the office I spotted these puppies... which look so much like the ray bans I wanted but they are not nearly as ginormous, so I was a happy girl :)
 
 
Let me just say, I feel like I am seeing everything in High Definition! It makes me sad to see the difference I have been missing out on. Happy to have my eyes back :)

Oh and P.S. Happy Birthday to the sweetest little sister anyone could have ever asked for.
LOVE YOU SARAH!
I remember 18 years ago waking up to find out I was a big sister! Kira and me wanted it to be a girl SOOO BAD :) It was probably the happiest memory I have of being little, just being so excited I was going to have a little sister.

  2. Well, for all my life I have wished for the chance to sport 'real frames', but as nature would have it I don't need them. Shhh, I wear fake ones from time to time. Love your new frames they look great espesh with your red lips.

  3. Cute glasses! I love them! I secretly want a pair of accessory glasses for when I'm teaching... Is that weird? :) Haha!

  4. You look cuuute! I don't need glasses but I wear them anyways (non prescription). That's how much I love glasses :)

  5. That's how I was too when I was a kid, my one eye was doing all the work. I wore glasses steady for years but now I just wear them when I feel I need to. I love em, so it's all good.
    Yours suit you well!

  7. haha as someone who's worn glasses for fifteen years, i know very much how you feel about getting new glasses and seeing again! great pick!

  8. i know that Hi-Def feeling! I've been in glasses and contacts since 3rd grade (ooohhh... 16 years ago) and just recently I caved and got new glasses with a brand new perscription... the differences are remarkable! contacts are freeing... but nothing beats a good pair of correct rx glasses :]

  18. these are cute! I've been blind all my life so trust me, you will get used to the glasses :) I actually need a new pair, but am too scared to order online. Have you seen Warby Parkers? UGH, I want one but am too nervous...at least I know you went through the same thing!

  20. VERY stylish glasses! I am going in for an eye appointment in mid-September, I hope I can rock a pair as good as you do! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like your new glasses a lot! I haven't been to the eye doctor in forever and I've notice lately that I can't seem things that are far away like I use too. I'm probably missing out on things too! Glad you can see again!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You look sooo pretty in glasses! Very studious. You've got the hot nerd thing down perfectly :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. you definitely pull those off girl!
    and that's crazy that you were only seeing out of one eye! good luck and enjoy the high def ;) haha

  24. When I was 6 1/6 I spiked this uber-high fever that wouldn't go down for a couple days, and afterwards my vision was shot. I am so nearsighted that I've been told I'll never see correctly through glasses as they are not directly ON my eye. Without
    corrective lenses my vision is over twice as bad as "legally blind" - thank goodness I can see 20/20 with contacts - such a gift!

  25. Those glasses are awesome!I have some brown ones kinda like that.They're more curvy though.I have one bad eye but as far as I know I am still using.That was pretty crazy!

  32. Very cool frames! I have one near-sighted eye and one far-sighted eye which makes it impossible for me to wear glasses. Bummer.

  44. I officially think those are the best frames ever! Seriously, will you come pick out some frames for me??? I would swear that it looks like I can't hardly see when I'm picking them out (oh wait... I CAN'T... ugh)

    ReplyDelete
  47. ooooo so cute!!! i also have mis-matched eyes, one is 20/20 and the other (lame eye ahah) is far sighted plus astigmatism. so i usually only wear one contact lens to correct the imbalance. i've needed new glasses for a few years; i always get so disappointed that they take so long to come in after you pick out your frames!

    ReplyDelete
  48. OH HI GORGEOUS!!! So glad you can see now!! You look fantastic!!! And pray tell what that shade of lipstick is? Its not quite red not quite pink, I must know!

  49. Hello there Alysia. Thanks for your comment on my pariah post. It always helps to know I am not crazy when other people see where you're coming from.

    Its a big wide world out there in the blog-o-sphere and I was curious how you came across my little blog? At first when I saw your post I thought you were a sister of someone I went to high school with (Crowley) but then I saw your picture and knew you couldn't be (they all have dark brown hair, Lol)

    From the quick glance over your blog it looks like you have TONS of stuff going on, the biggest, that being a spouse in law school, YIKES!! You would have to pink slip me, if my husband were to do that. But you seem like a girl who has her head straight on her shoulders and can take whatever comes in life in strides.

    Good luck with everything as we creep, ever so-zombie like, into fall semester!

    Peace-in-the-Middle-East!

  57. Hey Alycia! Thanks for your comment on my blog, made my day :) I love your blog, it's adorable. I totally related to your last couple of posts--I also love lemon squares and can never stop eating them once I sart, my husband has a thing for zombies too, and I love Jillian's 30 day shred (I definitely need to take your challenge!).

  58. I have astigmatism too! I really need to get my eyes checked, as I can feel it getting worse. Blah...

    Your glasses are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I LOVE you in glasses. You are gorgeous. I remember my first pair of glasses when I felt that way...you just look around at everything and are amazed at how much detail there is. Trees amazed me the most. I couldnt believe that you could see like individual leaves instead of a green bulk at the top.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Glad you got new glasses and saw the doctor! Hahaha HD is awesome! :D and I have to mention that the new frames are awesome looking on you, Alycia! :)

    P.S. - Happy Bday to your little sister! :D

  76. I totally LOVE those glasses on you! Those frames are so fab.. I always try to get cute frames like that when I need a new prescription but my eyes are so crappy that the glass hangs out of the frame :( they are perfect for your face though.. Jealous!
