New Glasses

Got some new eyeglasses over the weekend. It turns out that I've had the previous pair since 2002. My prescription has only changed a little, but after six years it's quite noticeable. Due to my astigmatism, the change makes me feel really short. Anyway, here's a snapshot:

The new frames are much darker than the old, and smaller in area. The old frames were a bit more "aviator" shaped, and gold metallic with a "tortoise shell" front on them. These new ones are closer to rectangular, and a dark brown metallic. I also got sunglasses in exactly the same shape, but a charcoal metallic with the darkest lenses they were willing to make.
