My 20/20 vision makes me feel guilty. I can see perfectly without the aid of glasses or contacts, yet I own three different pairs of specs. This isn’t a new obsession either. My little sister and I bought our first pairs of fake glasses when I was 12 years old and she was eight.
And the collection only grew from there. During my first week in our office, my co-workers complimented my eyewear. When I confessed that they were fake, I got a chuckle and an eye roll from every bi-focal donning employee. Why would I wear glasses if I didn’t need to?
While a lot of people who wear glasses day in and day out consider them a hassle, I look forward to it. I’ve even worn my glasses around my apartment on a Sunday when I’m alone. Yeah, that happens.
So for all the elective glasses lovers out there, I’ve found some great specs for you!
