My contact lenses now correct my vision to 20-20, not counting the extra edges on most things. More than ever, I need reading glasses in order to read anything smaller than 36 pt. type. I’ve been buying readers in the drug store, but I now need more than three times magnification and that’s hard to find. Also, I found a huge area (middle distance) where nothing worked. I spent enormous amounts of time putting on and taking off glasses. When I complained to my contact lens doctor she suggested variable focus lenses with the Transitions feature so I would not even need sunglasses.
I got the new glasses yesterday. I can’t believe how amazing they are. With a little head movement I can now see almost everything. I’m still having a little trouble with the computer, but I suspect that isn’t only the glasses. I could use a better computer desk. So I’ve become a permanent eyeglass wearer, for the first time in about 40 years. I just have to remember not to take them off. It’s gotten to be a bad habit.
This is what I looked like before glasses.
Here I am with my new glasses.
