My eyes have been bugging me for some time. I had them checked in college and was told I was slightly near-sighted....meaning I don't see things far away clearly. I had a pair of glasses I basically never wore.
Fast forward 20+ years later. It is a problem I can no longer ignore. Especially when driving in unfamiliar areas. When I am looking for the turn on "Harrison Ave"...I basically look for the shape of what might be an H in the sign because I can't read "Harrison" until I am up on the turn.
Feel me? Yes, I am THAT driver who suddenly cuts you off because they can finally read the sign and THIS is their turn!!
So for the past TWO years, I have had on my things to do list "get eyes checked". And this week I finally did.
Well thanks for waiting so long, I now have a bit more of a near-sighted issue AND the birthday issue. You know the birthday eye problem, don't you? The one that makes your arm grow longer to read the back of the medicine bottle? :)
Translation: bi-focals. Yep. Granny glasses. Not so happy. They offered contacts but it just sounded weird to me and I didn't want the hassle of "letting your eyes adjust for a few weeks". They supposedly have these newer "transition bifocals" that don't look so "granny".
So here I am trying on glasses in the store...with my painty phone!
Not really digging the look. I am going to keep looking. Any suggestions from you bifocal eyeglass people? Frames that are cute and fun and don't swallow a person's face? Would love to hear your thoughts!
