Eyeglass Update

Yesterday I returned my old eyeglass frames for new replacement lenses. These are for computer use, complete with a coating meant to reduce eye stress from electronic devices. I don’t know how that will work, of course, but the ease with which I’m reading this laptop screen is astounding.

Re-purposed Safety Glasses from Prior Employment
(Removable Side Shields Discarded)
Wish me luck on the long distance/driving glasses with bifocals. Those lenses have not yet come into the optical center. Unsure how they will work out, I can tell you the lenses are so large in those big vintage frames that I don’t imagine any problem with dizziness wearing them. We shall see (no pun intended).

I should have gotten an eye exam long ago. Oh, well. At least this prescription should be good for many years. And now you can guess why I use such a large font for my blog.

~grin~

Have you ever regretted procrastination, wondering why you waited so long to do something beneficial?

  1. You need to get an eye exam every year. You don't always need new glasses, but as we age our eye change. I'm glad you can finally see so much better.

    Yes I've regretted procrastination. I should have had cataract surgery a year before I finally had it. I couldn't believe how much better my sight was after the surgery.

    Have a fabulous day, Darla. ♥

  2. Oh, I so procrastinate... There's a reason my hair gets so so long. And then it takes me at least a month to make the phone call for the appointment.

    I bet there's a color thing on the glasses. I think it cancels out the blue? Something like that.

  4. Awesome that you got your glasses. But it is new for me...the radiation reducing glasses. I need to look into it as I spend so much time in front of a computer.

  5. Procrastination is one of my "skills"! I'm so easily sidetracked that I invariably end up working long into the evening catching up on all my tasks.

  7. The meaning of PROCRASTINATION.....Pam's life! haha....my mom is so not like that but it seems that her three kids picked it up somewhere cause we are all so bad at it. Bifocals~ hate them. Tried them about 3 times and always go back to my single distance glasses. I just use readers for small print and I never have to have them for the computer. I keep my icons and type at a large size!!

    1. You sure don't strike me as a procrastinator as much as you accomplish. ~nods~ I'm getting nervous about my decision and hope it's not going to be regretted. My eye doctor really tried to sell me on bifocals, so when I got to the optical department of Sam's Club I made my decision. But these computer glasses work fine for small print, so I wasted some money at the very least. ~sigh~ We shall see. I haven't gotten the call yet telling me they're in. Be well!

    2. So are they in yet? I hope they work great for you. It is a hassle changing out from reading glasses to tv glasses when watching tv and reading..haha

    3. The bifocal lenses aren't in yet. I'm so curious to try them, too. I understand what you mean about the minor hassle. Be well!
