When I was 16-years-old my eyesight started to deteriorate and I've spent pretty much everyday since hiding behind rather large spectacles. My glasses have become a security blanket, as well as my statement look of course, which allow me to fake confidence and hide my tired eyes from the judgmental stares of strangers. I really do feel naked without them.
I have thought about laser eye surgery in the past, I love my glasses but let's face it, it's a nuisance needing to wear something bulky on your face all of the time. I find it particularly annoying during summer when I wish I could just pop on a pair of sunglasses, or when I want to lie down and watch a film but can't without plastic frames digging into the side of my head.... there are many reasons why laser treatment would be beneficial, but despite these I just don't feel ready to let go of my favourite fashion accessory yet. Maybe one day!
