I Have Nearly Perfect Vision, But I Still Wear Glasses.

2.05.2015

I have a mole in my eye. Did you know that you could even get such a thing? I had no idea, but apparently it has been there my whole life. It's so teeny tiny that it's impossible to see with the naked eye, which is why I had no idea that it existed until my eye doctor told me about it five or so years ago. Since he first discovered the mole (which is actually more like a microscopic freckle) I've had to get routine eye exams every year just to make sure it doesn't decide to grow larger. Kind of strange, right? 

It was at my most recent eye appointment that I found out I also have an astigmatism in both of my eyes. It's a mild astigmatism in my right eye, but pretty severe in my left eye. It definitely explains why I can't see while driving at night and/or in the rain and why I am constantly straining my eyes while working on the computer.

With the mole and now the astigmatism, it sounds like I have pretty horrible eyes, right? I actually don't. Besides those two (very strange and unusual) aliments, I really have very good eyesight - nearly 20/20! Unfortunately because of the astigmatism, however, I still have to wear glasses when driving and when working on the computer. 
When Firmoo contacted me about reviewing a pair of their glasses, I jumped at the opportunity. After all, glasses are an accessory, and who doesn't like mixing out their accessories every now and then? I'll admit, I was skeptical about choosing a pair of frames online. I'm more of a try before you buy type of girl because I want to ensure that the frames compliment my face shape. Firmoo, however, has a really great feature on their site where you can see what the frames will look like on various models with different face size and shapes. This made the process of picking out the perfect frames incredibly quick and easy! Although I'll admit, with such a wide selection it did take me a while to decide on which frames I liked best. Once I picked out my frames, I simply filled out my prescription information and waited for my new glasses to arrive in the mail. 
I've been really impressed with the make and quality of these glasses. They seem to hold up very well to my not so gentle handling and care. They are very comfortable to wear all day and meet all my needs when driving and working. The best part about them, however, is the affordable prices! I mentioned how I like to switch up my glasses as if they were yet another accessory, and with such great prices I can purchase a two or three different styles. If you are in need of a new pair of glasses, I highly recommend checking out Firmoo.com. They have a wide selection and are constantly updating their new arrivals page. Check them out!


** I was given a free pair of glasses from Firmoo in exchange for my full review. All thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone.

  1. I have 20/20 vision but I have this "want" to wear glasses. Weird I know! Glasses are so chic and stylish and I see them as a great accessory for many people. I would never get non-prescription just to wear glasses and I certainly don't want bad eye sight to wear them either. For all you gals that have to wear them, rock it! You certainly pull them off well too Morgan!

    1. Brittany if you wear glasses but you don't need glasses and you don't want to wear fake glasses (I get it) I suggest that you go online (zennioptical.com) and pick out the glasses that suit you and order them with -.50 lenses This is an extremely weak distance prescription. You will be able to see perfectly with them actually slightly even better. But they won't do any harm to your eyesight. If you were to get your eyes tested tomorrow and you only told the doctor that you have some problems while driving at night even with your still perffect eyesight he would fit you with -.50 glasses with AR coating (anti-reflective) which is nice to have on your glasses if you do order glasses. You can get really great glasses including the AR coating for under $20.00 from Zenni. (retired optician)

  4. I totally get it! I have a huge mole in one of my eyes, it looks exactly like a large brown freckle and astigmatisms... but my eye sight IS bad, so I wear glasses/contacts all the time. I prefer contacts because glasses give me a headache. According to my husband, it's because I have a big ol' bobble head.

  8. Love those glasses! I have an astigmatism as well and would rather die than sit at a computer without my glasses. It's awful and gives me the most terrible headaches, plus I can't see! You look gorgeous as always my dear!

  11. Your glasses look very nice on you and they fit you perfectly. Yes I have heard of freckles on the eye and for what it's worth they normally never grow but still I agree that it is a a good idea to get your eyes checked just in case. Astigmatisms are very interesting. The good new unlike being near or far sighted there is usually very little change from year to year. And even though astigmatisms effects your eyesight for all distances your still able to see nearly perfect without glasses. In some cases astigmatisms are often the cause of headaches. I have a friend and she was my barber as well. She told me her story about getting glasses. She never had any problems with her eyesight. But for some time she was getting frequent headaches around mid day every day or so. She finally went to her doctor and he advised her that she should get her eyes checked. She reluctantly did as he suggested. She had no problem at all with reading everything on the eye chart. But after he looked into her eyes with a bright light he found the problem. He told her that she needed glasses which that alone shocked her. But then he told her that she would need to wear them all the time and that really shocked her. But of course even after getting glasses she didn't really think her eyes were the problem so she didn't wear the glasses at first but when she got a headache she tried the glasses and the headache went away and she has been wearing her glasses ever since. Her prescription is the same for both eyes plano -.75 180. Do you wear your glasses most of the time now or jsut part time?
