I have the unfortunate and somewhat rare affliction of 20/20 vision. Can you suggest some exercises or simple surgery to correct this for me? I’ve already tried reading books with very small type, sketching wearing two fisheye lenses strapped to my face, and watching TV with my nose pressed to the screen, but none of it seems to work. I really feel this is holding me back from making serious progress in my design career - a glasses ceiling really
My uncle is an optomotrist and when i first needed glasses about 15 years ago he went in to his basement and pulled out a box of old frames that his customers had just left with him over the years when they got new ones.
I immediately found both the zyloware and shuron frames, he filled my prescription and i have been wearing them ever since upgrading the lenses as needed.
at one point during an impromptu wrestling match with some friends the original clubman frames were destroyed but fortunately they are still making them in the U.S. and i was able to order a new pair, although i had to special order the temples to accommodate my massive head.
The Ray Ban Cop Goggles are new but just as classic.
I have a pair of the Victors in Smoke color. They are just slightly oversize. Subtle. The frames are smoked acetate with aluminum sides.
I alternate between those, and a pair of Aero Kilos in the Forest Park color, I like the construction on them, they have a metal frame laminated n between sheets of plastic.
My third pair is from a Danish company called Pro Design. I like the silver/green combo.
Then I have a pair of perscriptionized Spy Hielo’s for the sun.
I haven’t been able to find a pair of shades that looks good on my face or that don’t make me look like a jazz musician. Luckily I don’t need glasses but I would like some shades but they all make me look like a fly. I’ve only found one pair that look good but they are $5 cheapos so they’re probably doing more damage to my eyes. I’ll have to find out who they’re knocking off.
