has been around for 15 years and is in over 300 communities east of the Mississippi, but they’ve just launched here in the Chicago area with 23 locations in the city and suburbs. Spex Optical is among those locations, including the one here in Oak Park.
I’ve been feeling like my prescription may have changed recently, so I walked over for an exam last week. My least favorite part of an eye exam has always been the air puff test, but hooray, they didn’t do that! I don’t know why I get so nervous about a little puff of air, but they used a new device that felt like they were gently touching my lashes. That, I can handle. The optometrist ran several tests and confirmed that my eyes are healthy, but my prescription has indeed changed (as I had expected). Time for new glasses.
I tried on a bunch of styles that day, but I haven’t made a decision yet because I’ll be at the ‘Relax & Shop’ event in Evanston (2000 Central St.) on Wednesday from 10:30-noon, and I’ll check out some more frames then. You should come! There will be treats, chair massages, gift bags for the first 50 people, and a chance to win a $300 gift certificate.
So, these glasses. What do you think? Like a highlighter for your face!
OK, maybe those are a pass. These are in the running though.
And I’ll try more on Wednesday. will have image consultants and product specialists on hand to help people select frames. Will I see you there?
