After two weeks of fuzziness and headaches, I am finally heading to the eye doctor to endure an hour of crazy eye tests (yes, that's the accurate terminology) to see if I need glasses.
Of course, as I am confronting a minor life change, I start to come across all sorts of studies about people who have glasses. These studies include perceptions about heightened intelligence (I need all the credibility I can get) and attractiveness to the opposite sex.
This little piece by ABC News highlighted some of these ideas, but their little experiment was a poor attempt on so many levels. It did, however, establish that 66% of students believe their classmates who wear glasses are smarter.
I'll take it.
I'm not so sure what kind of glasses I would want, or how often I might have to wear them, but I am excited about the potential to look more writer-ly (yes, another accurate term), so I'll be throwing up a few "looks" to get a feel for what glasses would make me look cerebral AND fabulous.
