New Glasses

After two weeks of waiting, I’ve finally managed to get my new glasses.

New Glasses

As you can see from the picture, I’ve gone for the partial-rim style, which (I think) looks quite nice. One of the strange things you need to get used to, though, is seeing "ghost" images in your peripheral vision.

I’m guessing it’s due to total internal reflection (where light bounces off the inside edge of the glass) that I can see these artifacts. Like the time when you first wear glasses and can see the frames for a few days, I think this will quickly disappear.

These are also a significantly different shape to my other lenses: my previous pair were much rounder and this again will be something I need to adjust to.
