Styling my Eyes

June 6, 2016

My story with optical glasses, started when I was eight-years-old. My vision was not up to par, even at such a young age, so I needed to get glasses. Since then my glasses and I are together. Over the years my sight worsened, however I found a way to make it part of my style by choosing different frames and different styles. I often like to joke with people, when they congratulate me for my new pair of glasses and I reply “Thank you for congratulating me on becoming more blind.”

I often fall asleep while still wearing them. Maybe they might help me see my good dreams better. Sometimes people ask me why I don’t get my eyes lasered. My answer to their question is that I don’t want to give up 21 years of connection in a few minutes.

For this photo shoot, we visited Skitsas Optical shop, where I tried on a few frames, whilst styling my W2 two-in-double-you bowtie with a classic white tuxedo shirt and blue slacks matched with red No Brand shoes. Having been bored of my rectangular frames for a while now, I wanted to try the new round-frame styles. In the spirit of killing two birds with one stone, I took the opportunity to do get my sight checked again. To no surprise, my sight has gotten worse and I needed new lenses, so I chose a new frame for optical glasses, and one sun/optical glasses for summer time.

The variety of brands was amazing and the styles where so many, I almost didn’t know what to choose…almost.
