Crowley's Lakeside Story

My Future's So Bright
By Michael Argeylan

At the beginning of my professional career as a boat captain I was living on the cheap. It was a ‘steak or spaghetti?’ time in my life. A seven to eight month work year meant watching the pennies come in and the dollars going out. Shelling out the dough for a solid pair of sunglasses was never a priority until I went in for an updated prescription for contacts.

My prescription hadn’t changed for over a decade. Lucky for me they were the same, with one exception; UV damage. The Optometrist asked me what I did for a living. Being my first year of captaining, I was excited to tell her I was a boat captain. My answer prompted a quick, “Oh that makes sense.” She asked me what kind of sunglasses I was wearing. Cheap was my answer.

As you can imagine the Optometrist told me that if I was going to be on the water for hours at a time that I needed proper sunglasses to protect my eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. All I heard was, "If you don’t want to spend a lot of money in the future, spend it now." So I did that very day. It would be a spaghetti kind of week.

I still have that same pair of shades. Well, I have around five pair now but that’s another story. The difference between high quality sunglasses and the generic ones are incomparable.
