Recently went shopping for a new pair of prescription glasses and dragged my ever-patient sister with me. Being someone who wouldn’t buy new pair of glasses without a trusted eye, my sister was the perfect shop buddy. She wouldn’t hesitate to tell me if the glasses didn't fit, whereas the shop assistant’s advise could be a little tricky to believe in their well lit shop.
Having convinced myself I needed a new pair of glasses, I headed to my local Optician. I told myself, I new exactly what was wrong with my old pair, 'they weren’t the right fit'. So, I needed new ones to replace them. I told the opticians what I wanted and out came the frames. One-by -one I tried them on. With each one I tried, I started to doubt if glasses were made to suit frames like mine. All I had was a low bridge nose, surely there must be a pair of glasses out there that’s got my name written all over it. Plus, how hard could this be?
It took me trying my fair share of ill-fitted glasses, to discover that my current pair of glasses, were actually ideal for my flat bridge nose. Problem solved!
As I left the Optician's, I put on my old pair of glasses, with a new found appreciation for the glasses I’ve had for almost two years. I thought to myself, who knew I could learn a thing or two, just by shopping for a new pair of glasses. Which goes to show, there is truly no need fixing something if it isn’t broken!
