Glasses-less

I have worn glasses for the passed 6 years. I didn't want to. My eye doctor took a topographical map of the surface of my eye and when he showed it to me he said "this is supposed to look a target with your pupil in the middle and the layers of the target are supposed to be the curve of your eye." Mine looked like a Monet. He said my contacts were changing the shape of my eye. I knew something was going on because I couldn't keep them in for longer than an hour or two. Oh well, I'm a glasses person. Tina Fey can pull it off, why can't I? But every once in a while I wonder what I look like without them. Here, my friends, is the answer:No glasses puts a serious damper on the Librarian Look. You can't even TELL that it's a Librarian Look. This look strikes fear in no one.

Maybe someday, with enough money and guts, I'll down enough valum to be able to get LASIK. Untill then I'll just have to live with the fact that guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses. Good thing I have Collin.

Did you just call me ugly? No worries, I can take it. Ha ha.

You look AMAZING in (and without) glasses - if I could look like you do in them, I wouldn't have gotten lasik! But, if you want a pep talk sometime, I'm the BIGGEST wimp with my eyes, and I managed to pull off the surgery, which means ANYONE can!

I wish I could afford LASIK too! But you look awesome with glasses Rachel - and I like librarians...

You look GREAT either way! If you need a pep talk about Lasik let me know. Both Darin and I did it about 6 years ago. It was one of the best decisions of my life (besides marrying Darin that is :) ).
