V-Day Eyeglasses

Cranky baby. Not a whole bunch of sleep. Shifted sense of humor, or some sort of tiredness induced insanity.

Either I have completely blasted past any sort of touch with reality, or this is really funny…

A bit of a side note. I was poking around for some new frames, started looking at some online prescription frames, and got fully side tracked. Somehow looking at basic options found me checking out [link removed], and ultimately dropping a pair of V-Day glasses on top of a sweet robot jpeg. One must admit, the frames are both completely conducive towards Valentine’s day cheer, and for robotic…oh I don’t know…something.

Zenni kills it, regardless of the style. Take a quick look at the source of the image…

I think they would look equally amazing on a human. Preferably a female human.

Tired stupor aside, it is very amazing how far the internet has brought certain industries into the hands of the consumer. Glasses provide a terrific point. I have purchased three sets of frames from Zenni, and can say with a great deal of certainty, that my time in a brick and mortar spectacle shop are done. Have prescription, will go.

Anyhow…sorry about the tired ramble post. It still cracks me up though…

Cheap Eyeglasses

Due to either poor eye genes or work related strain, my vision has really taken a turn for the worse. Let’s just go with work and call it a day…three monitors are certainly awesome, but can’t be helping things out much. Regardless, I find myself on the hunt for some [link removed}.

My buddy Dock and I managed to sneak out to the golf course last weekend. It was my first round for years where I have managed to swing my driver all day (without giving in and hitting my three iron off of the tees) which was great. It was way less than great to need a spotter to figure out where I was ending up, due to my horrible eyesight. I can out drive the limits of my sight…for the win?

Baseball is right around the corner…time to handle this thing.

Zenni is the place to go for online eyeglasses. Quality eyewear without the gauging that you will see at the optometrist. If you can see your bill.

You may be surprised by the actual prices…

…looking sharp. Head to the local WalMart, shell out a few bucks for your prescription, and holler at Zenni. Cheap enough for redundant backups.

I Think I Need Glasses

Really, I need to get some glasses. I’ve been putting it off for a long time…left eye is good, but the right eye is pretty much garbage. Insurance policy comes due in January…going to put it off for another two months. Then, time to get out and grab some sweet spectacles.

Where do you suppose a tech blogger would go to purchase spectacles? I bet a tech blogger would buy glasses online. I wouldn’t know. I spend more time talking about food than technology. But, I can tell you with some certainty I will be buying my glasses online. More precisely, I will buy them at Zenni Optical.

Zenni has revamped their site…looks slick. The glasses were $8.00 per pair…now they are down to flipping $6.95. You could seriously pick up a baker’s dozen of these for less than the price of frames from the stinking mall. Check this out:


The webmaster at Zenni managed to stick that feature on his site. You can select a person’s face, and superimpose any of the glasses from the site onto the top of the image. Looking for some aggressive prescription wrap-arounds? Zenni has the hookup there too, bro.


Old gentleman, you look tubular.

What about gear for the future? Yep…got that too.


Now the old gentleman looks equipped to take on a cyborg. Bring it on. Check out that link up there to see for yourself…that app itself is worth the bump. I’m pretty sure I want some future-ass-goggles. Badly.

Dominick Dunne passed away today. He was the host of an obscure show that often followed Forensic Files. He will be sorely missed by some, I imagine. I will miss his funny glasses.
