Here's looking at you, kid

I need new glasses.

My current pair is in a bit of a state. The antiglare coating is wearing off the lenses, the earpieces are chewed, the right arm's been wobbly since I got hit in the eye playing football last summer. Yesterday it happened again, and they definitely feel wrong now.

I've been dreading replacing this pair, partly because my eyesight is so bad it costs upwards of £200 to get glasses that don't make me look like Viz magazine's much-loved Specky Tw*t, and partly because the model I currently sport is very nice and not made any more.

Thus, a poll. I reserve the right to ignore any or all suggestions - it is, after all, my face, though admittedly I don't have to look at it as often as other people do.

Poll #217516 Off My Face
