There's a time for everything and how you lived your life few years back may not be appropriate today.

Becoming an adult exposes you to many realities and realizations in life. In my case, I've started to value things I used to take for granted and one of them is my vision. I didn't want to wear eye glasses or contact lenses before because I've always been a believer of minimalism—the less objects, the less hassle.

You know, I've always wanted to be maintenance-free and carefree. I have always wanted to focus on minimal things that matter most for me so you wouldn't expect me to talk about the life of the neighbor you hate; or the break-up of a celebrity couple—it's too much for my time. Take note that I also follow some celebrities whom I like and those who inspire me but I would not spend much time talking about their personal life. Come on, less problems, less hassle.

I've come to a point where I've become conscious of what I speak, eat, do, or try. I've really changed a lot. When I was younger, I just wanted to just be myself and focus on the fun and living life to the fullest. I think, that chapter of my life is over. I'm now on an era in my life where every move that I make or every word that I speak is self-censored because modesty and decency should also come with age.

While it's so cool and fun to 'be yourself', this should not compromise your dignity and decency. For a guy like me who is new in adulting, it's important to be yourself but I believe I should act and speak my age. There's a time for everything and how you lived your life few years back may not be appropriate today.

Speaking of being minimalist, I'm still that person today but I've personally modified that concept. There are simple things in life that we should also pay attention to. As I become older, I've valued the importance of health and wellness—this includes a healthy vision so I decided to get my eyes checked once again and get those eyeglasses back because my vision is getting worse each time. As an avid traveler, I still want to appreciate the beauty of places and people with my optimal vision.


► How to Avail Eyeglasses at EO (Executive Optical) in 3 Easy Steps?


Yesterday, I went to the Gateway Mall-Cubao Branch of Executive Optical (optometry clinic) to have my eyes checked. The clinic is located at the Aurora Boulevard side of Gateway Mall, ground floor, below the LRT station of Cubao.

► Step 1: Choose a frame and the type of lens.

A cheerful sales attendant assisted me and showed to me the frames on sale (assuming I'm in need of new glasses). However, I didn't like the frames of the the items on sale so I checked the frames located inside a locked glass storage. I saw two frames with green temples so I checked those two. These frames are branded so they are much expensive with costs starting from 4,000 pesos.

Ask assistance from the sales representative after you've chosen one.

For the lens, I chose the photochromic lens commonly known as the the transition lens. The price was ~1900 (discounted). It's more expensive than the other lenses but I wanted something that is more convenient and of course, minimalist and less maintenance—like I don't have to change for sunglasses in very bright places.

Take note that you don't need to get a branded frame. For fellows running short of budget, they have incredibly cheap choices. I chose the branded frame for personal reason (I was after the green temples).

Step 2: Wait for the optometrist to check your eyes.

After I've chosen the lens and the frame, I waited a little for my session with the optometrist. I entered the refraction room and my vision was assessed using the Snellen chart and other equipment I'm not familiar with.

An equipment was placed on my eyes. The optometrist manipulated the equipment then assessed my vision by asking me if my vision was clearer. After I've found out the clearest vision, she took note of the calibration and chose the right grade for my eyes—50 on my right eye and 100 on my left eye. The optometrist told me to walk and test if I would get dizzy. Unfortunately, the 100 lens got me dizzy so it was reduced to 75. I was diagnosed with astigmatism.

Step 3: Pay at the cashier

After the optometrist scaled the right lens for me, I was asked to pay at the cashier then I waited for 20 minutes before my eyeglasses was released.


► Ending Notes


1. Take care of your glasses by wiping it only with the clothe given to you. Avoid alcohol, perfume, and other liquids and chemicals as these may damage the lenses.
2. Take care of your eyes as much as you take care for your heart after a heart break.
3. Do you want your brand to be featured on my blog or interested to hire me as a brand ambassador? Shoot me an email and I will reply as fast as lightning.
