My brain is definitely still adjusting to the correction. I was highly distracted at collection by the way everything around me was Suddenly Much Sharper, and also Bent Slightly Wrong. My proprioception is a bit off still: on my walk home I began to feel as though I was about a foot shorter than usual, and stopped a couple of times to touch things for reassurance. Even now (some hours later) my laptop screen appears to be a trapezium rather than a rectangle. I am assured this will pass in time ...

I went for my eye test yesterday, and confirmed that my prescription has changed a small but measurable amount since the previous test in February.  I then shopped around a bit for frames, and ended up ordering 2 cheap frames from Specsavers.  One with antireflective coating and one without.  I pick them up next Saturday, so there will probably be some photos then ...

(For future reference: I have since learned that Boots offer a 25% student discount, which along with their providing antireflective coatings by default probably tips the price balance their way for next time.)

I am almost certainly getting glasses at the end of the month[1], and I have NO IDEA how to choose glasses.  Please advise!  
  • I will be wearing them for reading and screen work, so the vast majority of my waking time, ahahaha.  
  • I will have a very low strength prescription, which I think means the available choice will be huge.  
Would it be terrible to buy a couple of cheap frames of very different design, and then go back in a few months when I have developed Opinions through usage?  What even is the decision space?  Shapes? Colours? Materials? Construction?  What are the common buyer mistakes / obnoxious selling behaviours in the market?


[1] I've had very mild astigmatism in my right eye for years, and it has very slowly been worsening, and it has recently passed the threshold of "I am noticing this and it is annoying me on a daily basis".  I am off to the optometrist for an up-to-date eye test and then some glasses.  Ah the joys of approaching 40.
