When I was in 2nd grade, the school nurse came into our class and put an eye chart up on the board. No sweat, right? Read the letters with one eye and then the other. So, when it came to my turn, I read all the way to the bottom line with my left eye, and then, had to cover and read with the right eye. Uhoh! Houston, we have a problem! I could not even read the top letter, even though I knew it was an E! Of course, the other kids just thought that was hilarious, which made me cry. Kids can be so cruel.
What followed was lots of tests, and I was diagnosed with amblyopia. That means that I only see out of one eye. Actually, I have 20/20 in the left eye, and 20/200 in the right eye, but 20/200 might as well be completely blind! We tried the eye patch routine, that didn't seem to help, and I kept bumping into walls and couldn't do my school work, either.
So, I've been like that all my life, and my left eye has done all the work for 40 years. As it happens to most people over 40, I began to have trouble reading without my super magno glasses.......and that worried me, because ya know, I've only got one working eye here! But here's what I noticed, now that my left eye is weakening, which is completely normal for people my age, my right eye seems to be waking up! It's so weird, almost like a new eye moved into the right side and is trying really hard to work for me now. Unfortunately, sometimes now it crosses....especially when I am looking in the mirror!
Anyway, I am so grateful for my vision, and I hope it will not get any worse. For now, I cannot read, sew, or draw without my glasses, and I have 6 pair. They are all the same, not prescription, just magnifying. For this weeks HNT, I present myself in my two favorite pair of glasses. Be good to your eyes!
I leave you with this final question: Do you believe it's true that men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses?






Mr Ratburn's got four eyes as well!

Please stop by Hijacked and wish the Idiot a Happy Birthday!

And this post IS good to our eyes, offering us something very pleasing on the eyes to look at. I actually like both frames.

Green Eyes said...

Since I wear glasses too, and just came in from being out, I'd say guys do like a girl in a pair of lens. It's what's under the lens that counts!

Thanks for your comment tonight. Forward is the only way to go!

I have poor eyesight too. Both my brother and sister had great eyesight growing up. I had to get glasses in 3rd grade and even then, the doc said I should have already had them :( You look cute in glasses.

I wore the eye patch in 2nd grade, too. And your glasses are hella sexy. I'd definitely make passes at you.

BTExpress said...

You are kidding right? Glasses make no difference at all. I would make a pass at you any day. You look great! HHNT!

MamaKBear said...

I know what you mean...I've only got one working ear and it scares me when it gets stuffed up or something and I can't hear as well.

I think those glasses are cute!

Happy HNT! :)

Leela Lamore said...

I think glasses are terribly sexy, very school mistressy. I am sure there are many men that have total fantasies about school mistresses!

BuccoTom said...

Oh no dear, men indeed make passes at girls who wear glasses ... especially when they are a sexy as Susie. Great post, great story and great pics. HHNT doll.

Jericho said...

For the first time, I now own a prescription for eyeglasses. The thought of wearing glasses does not bother me, though. I do not plan to get contacts anytime soon... You are lovely! ~HHNT~

CyberWarlock said...

That would be a Dorothy Parker quote I do believe @ "Men don't make passes..." and while that may have been the case in the mid 1900s, I don't think it holds as true today. Happy HNT!

Love the specs....nice shot! Happy HNT!

Aisha T. said...

I have a friend that reads with her right eye and uses her left eye to drive etc. I have horrible eyes and will need the surgery soon. Kids can be cruel--that's too bad that you had to do that in front of the whole class but, it made for some hot HNT.

Schadeboy said...

Hey, I think glasses actually add to a woman's femininity and attractiveness. There are a lot of really hot women out there who wear glasses. And I'd put you in that category.

Happy HNT.

Crimson Velvet said...

HHNT! The glasses are very nice!

Gabby said...

Great HNT! As a spectacle wearer since the age of 4, I totally know where you're coming from.

I think men do make passes at girls in glasses...it just depends how the women wear them...and you show EXACTLY how it SHOULD be done!

Happy HNT!

Solitaire said...

Hey, to have fun with us at the Rogue, check out the HNT @ the Rogue website off of Marcel's blog (Da Blogs Da Thang) tonight and watch us in Fresno surfs the HNT's. ;-)

Randi said...

barefoot_mistress said...

Thanks Solitaire, I will come back later and try to access this Rogue from here....Happy HNT

Mia said...

Oooo I like those glasses! Now I wanna get some new ones - ugh!

Shora said...

You remind me of Jobeth Williams. HHNT!

Jay said...

Bridget Jones said...

ummm they sure do. I think they make ooh never mind I'll just get into trouble here.

Those are great pics! Love both pairs--it's the attitude that counts!!

Eyes get shorter as you age, so if you're nearsighted, eyesight gets better. Way to go sweetie!!

nosouthernbelle said...

My husband goes nuts when I wear mine! Who knew they could be so hot!

Tricia said...

God, I just love that color.
So gorgeous against your skin.

And the glasses are cute too.

Robert van de Walle said...

With a smile like that, a guy would be an idiot to pass the chance to make a pass at those eyes!

Awesome HNT! I have had glasses since 5th or 6th grade and now even though I have switched to 30 day contact lenses I LOVE to wear frames. I have a purple pair very similar to the first pair. And I love the green walls too! Happy HNT
