You know you’re getting old when you need more than one pair of glasses. I guess I’m getting there because I’ve had it with my “progression” bifocals and I elected to get distance and reading glasses. Now if only the suckers had some common ground that included my computer monitor. No such luck. Apparently I need a third pair of glasses for the difference.
It all started when my old glasses fell apart in my hand. I had just washed them and was drying them when the plastic frames broke in two places and the left lens popped out. I’d been needing a new prescription for a while anyway, so I got the fastest appointment I could swing and placed my order.
I love the new distance glasses, but considering I probably spend eighty percent of my day looking at my computer each day, they aren’t cutting it. the part that burns is that I told the optometrist I was concerned about the distance available on the reading glasses. She fobbed me off.
So I took the reading glasses back to have them remade for computer distance. They still don’t cut it, though it’s better. Then, I was washing the reading glasses a few days ago… You can guess where this is headed. Yep. The nose piece broke off. I have a nasty suspicion they ended up in the garbage, but i didn’t see them there when I dug through, and now it is already gone.
I’ve pretty much decided I need progressive lenses anyway because I spend waaaay too much time switching between glasses. If they still have the lenses from before, I’ll have those put in again so I can at least see my beads and embroidery thread clearly.
So, sometime today I need to get my reading glasses fixed, and order a pair of progressives. Wish me luck!
