Dear Red Hot Mamas,

First it was the eyesight that went, then the hot flashes. I seem to have the hot flashes under control with hormone therapy my doctor put me on, but the eyes are a problem. I know this might sound vain, but I am wearing outdated eyeglasses which are making me look old. Can you give me some suggestions? Thanks so much. I love the Red Hot Mamas and all you do for women.

Thank you,


Dear Barb,

First, you do have some choices now if you don’t want to wear eyeglasses. There are contact lenses, as well as LASIK surgery. Secondly, you don’t have to feel old wearing glasses as there are some really gorgeous and sexy eyeglass frames out there. And, if you are wearing the wrong frames, certainly changing frames can make a huge difference in the way you feel about yourself. Eyeglasses now are like a fashion accessory and they can make you look intellectual, as well as sexy. There are many designer glasses available and these manufacturers offer the latest styles in the newest shapes and colors. So updating your eyewear is no different than updating your wardrobe when the seasons change. Yes, eyeglasses are expensive, so I suggest trying on many pairs at several eyeglass boutiques until you find that perfect frame. You might want to accentuate your cheekbones by purchasing a slightly upturned frame (cat eye) or chose a frame with a color. And shop smart. You don’t have to buy your frame and lenses in just one store. Shop for the best prices on frames, but be sure not skimp on quality lenses. Hope this is of some help to you. Thanks for writing into Red Hot Mamas.
