I replaced my glasses today after going through the tiring trouble of shopping for them. There is no other process for me that’s so meaningless. What’s the most important thing in a spectacle? The lenses. How much percentage of time do I spend on deciding on the lens? Not more than 5%.

And shopping for the eyeglass frame then is shopping for fashion, which I have no sense for. What I like, I am told, doesn’t look good on me. It’s either too big. Or too small. What I am told looks good, I am not comfortable wearing that. Tired, I purchase one from whatever remains. What are clothes for if not just for covering my body, my brain consoles my crying mind each time.

That’s how my shopping for a frame for my glasses goes. What is the frame for if not just for holding the lenses within.
