Glassless Week

Both I and Barbara recently had our annual eye exams, and we both need new lenses. The eye place just called that our lenses are ready, but we have to take our glasses to them so the lenses can be cut to fit. We dropped them off late Monday afternoon, but they won’t be ready until sometime Friday, so we have a week without glasses.

While my distance vision is very good and requires very little correction, I need my glasses to read. Even on the iPad reading an ebook, I have to make the print size very large and it’s uncomfortable for me. Barbara’s in the same boat.

So for the rest of the week, it’s look out the window, nap, watch TV. Joy.

    As a fellow lens wearer, I have empathy for you. I hope you get everything back very soon!

    This is why I have 2 sets of glasses. Takes longer and is more expensive, but since I have to wear glasses to drive, well, no choice šŸ˜€

    • I used to do that, but that second pair sat in the drawer. By the time I need a new prescription, Iā€™d never worn them, and it doubled my cost. So I go without for a few days every couple of years.

    Have you looked at cheap drug store reading glasses? That’s what I use.

    That would be terrible, not to be able to read for a week. Well, at least challenging. I can read with my progressive lenses and watch TV but I have to use reading glasses for the computer. For years I haven’t been able to get that to work. Can you garden without glasses?

    Yow. That’s too long. We get ours at Costco. We just use the old ones until the new ones are ready. I also have drug store reading glasses like Cap’n Bob.

  6. What, you don’t have a back-up set of glasses???

    Really, you ought to consider trying dollar store reading glasses, or if you can go to Costco, their somewhat better quality ones. These are what I use since my cataract surgery.
