    6. Nonprescription computer glasses that block the pesky blue light seeping in from your monitor (blue light = the potential culprit behind your mid-afternoon headaches made worse by nonstop Excel sheets and "per my last email" responses).

    7. Round frames available in two awesome styles: a translucent ~crystal~ color and a classic tortoise print, both of which are equally fantastic. I wish you luck as you attempt to choose just one.

    8. Trapezoid-shaped frames that are the only math I want to think about in 2020. These beauties are super timeless and lightweight, plus the EyeBuyDirect site will help you measure your pupillary distance (in case you don't already know it).
