I got new glasses. Check em’ out!
They don’t look too different from my old glasses, but they’re different enough that they warranted a blog post about them, so there ya go. They’re Valentino, hence the “V” in the middle.
(Awwww yeah, bathroom pics at school.)
Since approximately a year ago, whatever coating that’s on my lenses has been slowly flaking off. First it was just two fairly small spots near the middle of my vision on my right lens, but it pretty rapidly progressed to just giant spots of blurriness on both lenses. Check it:
Yes, those are perfectly clean. All those marks/scratches are places where the coating’s flaked off.
Today I finally got some brand new, scratch-free, “holy crap I can finally see clearly” lenses. WOO!
I have no idea what was up with my old ones. That’s never happened before, and I’d gone to the same optometrist in Moscow since I was born, basically.
Alrighty, so every once and awhile I used to watch The Doctors on TV if I happened to catch them. Then they did this nonsense so they lost a lot of credit with me and I’d never stopped to watch them since.
However, today I was trying to find a channel to “watch” while I packed my crap for the move, and the channel playing The Doctors was the only decent choice, so I just had it on in the background while I did stuff in the back room.
I happened to come back out in the living room when they were talking about these, and I’m actually glad I did, because these special colored lenses seem pretty cool.
From the website: “The Irlen Method has earned millions of fans by providing a long-term, expertly developed solution to reading problems, headaches, light sensitivity, ADD and ADHD, autism and many other ailments–by directly addressing a core problem: the brain’s inability to process visual information.”

Super interesting! I think it’s something that could help a lot of people.
