Cut to 10 years and a few thousand hours in front of the computer screen later and I no longer need to lie to my optometrist to score prescription lenses.

5 Pairs Of Eye-Catching Eyeglasses
When I was in 9th grade, I so badly wanted a cool pair of glasses that I lied to my optometrist. “Which one looks clearer?” he asked, switching between slides of random letters. “Honestly I can’t see either one,” I sighed. “Also I like your goatee. It suits you.” The doctor stroked his bare chin and wrote me a prescription for bifocals. A week later, I had secured a pair of insurance-reimbursed purple Calvin Klein frames and was feeling pretty smug.
