Bend Your Glasses

Remember back four years ago when I told you to clean your glasses. Well I’m back, with more exciting optical fun.

A few weeks ago, I started to realize my glasses — which I wear from dawn to dusk these days — were pressing into the side of my head. While this wasn’t noticeable for most of the day, by 10:00 p.m. or so I found that I was starting to get a headache from it — a headache that I didn’t even really know I had until I took my glasses off and felt much, much better.

So today I resolved to do something about it. I went in to Boyles Optical in the Polyclinic for a glasses tune-up. The personable Ron Boyles took the glasses into the back room, and when he emerged 10 minutes later they had been completely transformed: what had once dug into my skull now fit perfectly around my head; Ron even installed new “nose pads” to keep the glasses from sliding down my face (a problem I didn’t know I had).

So now it’s like I have completely new glasses. Headache gone, outlook on life improved, clarity amplified.

I must get the same feeling at least a few times a year. My glasses are either sliding down my face or digging into my skull, but a good tune-up does the trick!
