The search for new eyeglasses

It's been nearly a year and a half since my last eye exam. I thought it was time to get a check up and look for a stylish new pair of glasses. I'm getting more blind as I get older. Sigh.

I tried on a bunch of different frames before deciding on a pair to order at Accent On Vision. I've been going to this optometrist since I moved to Tucson in 2001 and they're always really nice and take every variation of vision insurance that I've had.

Here are the photos I shot while I was there... including selfies of the various frames I tried on.

Accent On Vision on Oracle Road

Plenty of frames to choose from

The inside of my eye.
It's pretty ugly but it's healthy.

Frames I tried on at Accent On Vision.
These were a candidate.

Too similar to the pair I wear most often now.

Sophia Petrillo frames

These make me look too much like a gay fashion designer

Too small for my giant fat head

I'll save these until I'm grandpa age

1930 called and wants their frames back


I kind of liked these.
They complimented the contour of my head

These were a candidate

Another pair that made me look 80 years old

I liked these.
I'd need to buy a purse to match.


I also liked these.

These were a strong candidate.
I could pass for a poor Steve Jobs.

In the end, I chose these Oakleys.
I thought they were distinctive and very me.
