So I went for an eye test at the weekend. I’ve worn glasses for nearly 25 years now, having been diagnosed with a strong astigmatism and mild short-sightedness (not quite −2 dioptres) at the start of my teens. However, as my hairline has been trying to tell me for a few years now, I’m not the young man I used to was. So my sight test at the weekend told me I’m now long-sighted — apparently I’ll need varifocals within five years.
So, aside from the schadenfreude value of my aging, why am I blogging this? Well, I need new glasses, and Glasses Direct do this thing where you can order four frames to try at home and get opinions on. Photos, from the front and the side, for each of the four frames I picked are below (click to embiggen). So, dear Internets, tell me which glasses I should get.*
