Fireworks & bonfires: Do take care

Fireworks are delightful inventions that bring fun and enjoyment to everyone (except maybe dogs and old people). But they’re also small dangerous missiles packed with gunpowder that fire ‘payloads’ at hundreds of miles an hour into the sky to explode in a (hopefully) controlled and artistic way. Without sounding like too much of a party pooper, it’s the same story for bonfires. Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

Glasses vs contacts vs surgery

Never wear glasses or contact lenses again

In the early hours of January 1st this year, after one too many gin tonics, my friend slipped on some ice, faceplanted the pavement, chipped her front tooth, and received her first gift of the New Year: a grade III ankle sprain. Normally incredibly active and incapable of sitting still for thirty seconds, she was bound to crutches for nearly two months. That meant no sport, exercise, or even skipping up the stairs. Or in her words, “This year is cursed I can’t… Read more

Throw your reading glasses away

A lot of unexpected but unavoidable things happen as we get older. Hair stops growing where it should and starts in obscure places, hard parts of the body get soft and soft parts get hard, our memory fails us, we lose a few inches in height, and our eyesight deteriorates. Most of these things don’t really affect day-to-day life. You can deal with occasionally being senile — in fact, it can come in handy from time to time. The hair sprouting out of ears and… Read more

How to look good in your glasses?

You’ve tried to embrace them as the fashion accessory — you really have. But unlike Jennifer Aniston or Anne Hathaway, you weren’t blessed with perfectly symmetrical features. Your face doesn’t fit nicely into one of the common categories — “Square, diamond, heart, or base down triangle? More like oblong-triangle with a dash of square”— and the only style that does looks good on you went out of fashion twenty years ago. But they’re easier and safer than contacts so you try to make them work.… Read more

Fed up of cheap reading glasses

They were never meant to be part of your life. It was just another day on a routine shopping trip, after a morning of straining to read this month’s bank statement and the small print on product labels, when you finally decided enough is enough and paused as you passed the revolving rack of shame. You casually rotated the stand, trying to give off an air of passive interest, and then, when nobody was looking your way, slyly whisked a pair into the… Read more

10 things every glasses wearer will know

Glasses are cool. But the oil and pimples around the rims are not. Nor is the dumb feeling of waking up with no clue where you left them, only to find them in a really obvious spot. And don’t get me started on… Glasses wearers put up with A LOT that frameless folks just don’t understand — do your pet hates make the list? You grab a quick shower before work and it takes way longer than it should. There’s nowhere to put… Read more

Wake up sharp — not blurry

The day starts with a hunt around the house. You could have sworn you left them on the bedside table. Are they in the bathroom? Nope. Kitchen? Nope. 20 minutes later you return to where you started scratching your head and spot them right there, where they’ve been all long, on the bedside table. This kind of sums up how the rest of the day goes. After you finally found them, you pop them down and jump in the shower, rush through shaving,… Read more
