Wearing Glasses Can Make You Awesome

Eyeglasses are Cool
I know everyone will not agree with me on this one, but I declare that cool people wear eyeglasses. Even when I was a small child I always felt the smartest and most interesting folks wore glasses. My vision was pretty good as a child, so I never got to wear glasses. I was always disappointed about that. I did, however, have to wear braces on my teeth, but my feelings towards braces are certainly not positive. That is an entirely different topic though and I should explore that some other time.

Now, as an adult, I get to wear glasses. About 10 years ago, my vision was finally bad enough to wear eyeglasses part-time. I started to get headaches and squint, so I was quite excited to finally get my glasses. At the time, wire frames were all the rage, so my first pair of glasses had silver frames. Oh, it was a dream come true! I wore them all the time even though I did not need them that much.

Times are Changing
I've noticed recently that I am not the only person who thinks glasses are cool. Everywhere I go, people are wearing glasses. I could not help but notice the other day at the mall groups of teenagers wearing eyeglasses. There was a time when teenagers never wore glasses unless they absolutely had to do so. If you saw a group of "cool kids" together and one kid was wearing glasses, it was a sure bet that was the kid that did everyone else's homework in the group.

That is simply not the case anymore. Eyeglasses are in fashion now. The more obvious the glasses, the better. I've seen everyone from celebrities to cheerleaders wearing all types of eyeglasses. All the hipster kids are wearing the big glasses that look like they stepped out of the 1980s. Forget the subtle wire frames; you need to have plastic frames and in different colors. The bigger the eyeglasses the better. Even if your vision is perfect, you can still walk into a store like The Icing and buy a pair of fashion eyeglasses.

Don't Bother with the Contact Lenses
Do you were contacts? Shame on you! Take them out now and put on a pair of glasses. Personally, I feel like glasses are a perfect fashion accessory. I have several pairs of glasses in different colors. I can coordinate my glasses with my outfit. Why wear contacts and take away all that fun? If you enjoy picking out the jewelry you are wearing for that day, you can have the same fun picking out glasses. You have poor vision and you should be proud!

Support the Trend
If you wear eyeglasses, wear them with pride. Since I love glasses so much, I want to keep them trendy for as long as possible. Buy glasses and buy plenty of them. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Even Walmart sells prescription glasses. You can get an entire pair of glasses for under $50!

Let's keep eyeglasses in style! Even when the trend does go out of style, I will still wear my eyeglasses. No corrective surgery for me! Like I said, I always thought the smartest and most interesting people wore glasses. I am happy the rest of the world agrees with me now. Yes, cool people wear eyeglasses!
