In case you didn’t know, I am blind as a bat. My vision is TERRIBLE. Like if I don’t have my glasses or contacts in, I may or may not know you are in the same room as I am. The last time I got my driver license renewed, the DMV employee let me know that I was restricted to wearing my corrective lenses when driving and I just to laugh. I told her, “Lady, no worries there. Without my corrective lenses, I doubt I could find my car.” Not only is my vision itself bad but I also have pretty significant astigmatism (which means my eyes are shaped more like footballs). Thankfully, they now make toric contact lenses for astigmatism in disposable contacts but they are still more pricey and the ordering/fitting process is more of a pain.
Since I have left the traditional workforce, I have been wearing my glasses more often. Because of my less than stellar vision, I always have to order special lenses so I can avoid the coke bottle effect and thankfully, I discovered Firmoo.com which has made my life so much easier! I can actually order the lenses I need without breaking the bank and the selection of frames they have available is amazing! I had previously purchased two different styles of reading glasses because I am a total goober and don’t like to mix black and brown unless absolutely necessary.
Yes, I am totally referring matching my glasses to whether or not I am wearing a black or brown belt/shoes/etc.
And yes, I am a total weirdo.
I have always wanted a pair of prescription sunglasses but since I previously wore my contacts the majority of the time, I never took the plunge until now and I am loving them!
I am getting ready to have my yearly eye appointment so I am eyeballing these super cute pink frames just in case my prescription changes!
One of the reasons why I started the Chronic Style segment here on A New Kind of Normal is to be able to share affordable fashion and makeup finds as I find it important to feel fierce and confident even when you are on a budget and Firmoo fits the bill perfectly!

Glasses include the frames, standard 1.50 index single vision lenses. Upgraded lenses and add-ons will be charged for an extra fee.
