Fact: I am blind as a bat.
I’ve worn glasses and contacts, or some combination of the two since the fourth grade, and probably could have used a pair prior to that point were it not for my hopes that obsessive carrot eating really would work wonders on my retinas.
It doesn’t help now that I stare at words for a living, on the screen, in a book, when I’m not running circles after one such toddler who shall remain nameless. So when firmoo.com contacted me about trying out their glasses, I gladly obliged – even though it took more than four months for me to actually make it to the eye doctor and update my prescription.
And, all those glorious days later, this is all I had to do: upload a picture from my computer, mark “X’s” for my pupils, then watch as a magical little person living inside my computer crafted my face in 80 different pairs of their frames.
But the cool thing is that I now have a handful of frames I already love, so why not have you help me further narrow it down. Cast your vote!

So, what’ll it be? Of course, I could go for the Dwight Schrute look, like these…
But I’m not nearly hipster enough to pull those off, nor am I about to wear a pair of frames built for an eight year old’s face. Like these…
You helped us pick our family Christmas card a couple years ago, so kindly do the same with my face, will you?
My eyeballs will forever thank you!
