The "New Me"
Can you see what's new?
The glasses are my new distance glasses. I just got them yesterday. Just about a month ago, when I went to watch my son play tackle football in IFL Kraft Stadium I suddenly found it very difficult to find him on the field, read the players' names and numbers. And then a short while after that I had to ask someone which number bus was approaching.
It was confirmed by the eye doctor and then at the prescription test at the optician.
I was told to wait re:bifocals, or multifocals. At this stage I should use the distance from afternoon on all the time. I had really wanted different frames but decided to get cheaper ones. I hope I didn't make a mistake. My new stronger reading lenses were put in the old frames.
It's going to be a challenge to juggle all the eyeglasses including the sunglasses which I wear all year round, except in the rain and nighttime outdoors. There's a pretty good chance that next year, and I was instructed to get checked every year, not every two years, I'll have to invest heavy money in multifocals which turn into sunglasses in the bright sun.
