The Lady in the Car with

Lady with Glasses


In the media world, up until quite recently (thank you Tina Fey and Jess from New Girl), glasses on girls and women have typically been seen as unappealing. A beauty transformation is usually called for, in which the glasses are dashed away:

By Kristin Urban

I’m a girl and I wear glasses.

Wait, let me correct that: I am a twenty-something year old woman and I wear glasses. Not a girl, not a grandma, but a young woman who wears glasses all the time. Yep, not just for reading, or driving, or sitting at the computer, but every day and every time I use my eyes.

A few months ago, as I put my new glasses on at the local eyeglass store and checked out my reflection in the closest little round mirror, the woman behind the desk told me how fab I looked. She also cheerily mentioned that whenever I got tired of them, I could of course just put my contacts in! How perfect!

tumblr_n06wrrO8u11sa45r0o3_500As a twenty-four-year-old woman that needs corrective lenses all the time and who does not fit the ‘nerdy’ or ‘hipster’ persona, I must have contacts, right? Seriously, wouldn’t it just be plain silly to wear glasses every moment? Not just for reading or driving, or as a fashion statement, but always, because medically, I need to.

Unbeknownst to the salesclerk however, I actually do not have contacts. I simply wear my glasses all the damn time. This is partly due to my strong reflex to run for the hills whenever something comes remotely close to my eyes and partly because I just plain love wearing glasses.

But glasses are cool now, right? Nearly everyone in edgy alternative Portland wears them, so why am I even writing about this? Because little comments like the one from the woman at the eyeglass store irk me (even if they mean no harm). Besides, over the course of the eighteen years that I’ve looked at the world through a pair of lenses, my feelings towards glasses have touched every emotion in the feels spectrum. So here I am, to examine what I have come to learn and think about glasses over the course of time and what others should know about them too.
