Abstract Thursday ......
.... Sportive. Or in my case .... sporting new glasses.
Okay ... maybe that's little bit of a stretch! But I've been looking for an excuse to pose with my new glasses and tell you the whole story!
A little while ago I believe I mentioned that I was getting progressive lenses made but wasn't sure how I would like them.
Turns out I didn't like them at all! I tried wearing them but just couldn't get used to them. As I do a lot of reading I found that the reading portion of the progressive lenses was simply too small. I really had to strain to read anything! It wasn't a good situation. After trying them out for a little bit I decided to take them back to the eye doctor where I had them made. I thought that the optician said that I could return them if they didn't work out.
Well .... I was wrong! But they did agree to change out the lenses to regular bifocals. I never thought there'd be a day that I would be wearing bifocals! But here they are! As soon as I put these on at the doctor's office I could see that they were going to work much better than the progressives. I don't wear them all the time (especially like now when I'm on the computer) but they're great for grocery shopping, watching TV, etc.
The final score: Progressives 0, Bifocals 1
