Remember back in the day when children who wore glasses were dubbed "four-eyes" by their classmates? Thankfully that's no longer the case.
Eyeglasses have become a fashion accessory of late, a fashion statement, in fact. Kids no longer need to balk at the idea they have to get spectacles, as my middle daughter did when she was in fourth grade and given the news she needed considerable help to get her vision even close to 20/20. If only she had known then what a trend-setter she really was, life around our house would have been a wee bit calmer.
Years later, when I was given similar news and bifocal glasses were prescribed, I had no qualms whatsoever about sporting spectacles, especially considering the fashionable options available. (Of course, the option of progressive lenses with no lines helped the cause quite a bit, too.)
When my daughter first got her glasses, it was a lengthy process requiring appointments with optometrists and waiting for quite some time for the glasses to be delivered and fit. When I got mine, the process was a bit easier and less time consuming, requiring no appointment and a quick visit to a strip mall retailer. Now the process has gotten even simpler than that, thanks to the ability to buy eyeglasses online.
