New Glasses!


So I just finished teaching my second week of school and I am enjoying my long weekend.  I didn’t blog about it this summer, but I’ve had contact-drama for months.  I’ve always had dry-eye problems, but it got worse over the summer.  I’ve worn contacts for years and I have an old pair of glasses, but they are an old prescription.

After seeing my eye doctor in June, she told me my eyes were extremely dry and had almost a brush-burn on the lower half of both eyes.  She has me on drops and told me to take a break from my contacts.  We’ve been trying out different brands and I think I’ve finally found a brand that works.  The one thing that has helped me is wearing glasses as much as possible.

I was contacted by in May to receive a discount on glasses and to blog about my experience.  I told them I had to wait until my June eye doctor appointment, but with the dry-eye issues it really couldn’t have worked out any better!  I got a little impatient and ordered a pair of glasses and sunglasses before they even sent me a discount code!

I decided to buy the Dune Black eyeglasses and used my prescription that my doctor gave me.  The $38 price includes basic lenses, or you can upgrade to a non-glare.  I decided not to upgrade since I wanted to just try them out and buy another pair later.


I got my prescription glasses after a week or so and they were great!! Having my current prescription in a pair of new glasses was great and gave my eyes a big break from my contacts.

I also ordered these sunglasses and I was so excited.  I’ve never had prescription sunglasses because they are always so expensive at the eye doctor.  I always thought it would be so nice to have them for vacations at the beach and early morning runs.  These sunglasses did not disappoint and they even stay on when I run outside!!


When I received my discount from GlassesUSA, I looked at different frames but decided to get the same Dune Black frames that I loved so much.  I decided to upgrade to the non-glare lenses and I LOVE THEM.  I’ll keep the first pair as a back up and for running outside in cloudy weather.
