Two tips that I recommend for anyone ever going to get them for the first time are:
1) Don't wear eye makeup. I don't know why I put on mascara before heading over. I never do when I go in for check-ups. It was a dumb idea.
2) Make sure your nails are short. I grew mine out recently and was just about to paint them pink again, but had to borrow a pair of nail scissors in order to be able to pull a damn contact lens out of my damn eye. Again, another palm to the forehead kind of moment.
Despite all the frustration and, dare I say, stress that I experienced today, it was kind of cool to see myself without glasses for the first time in years. I was also able to brush off the dust of an old pair of sunglasses and wear them, which was exciting as well.
My guess is that they'll be moving into a larger space in no time. Does anyone know when they officially open?
