Eyes Still Work  
Went to the eye doctor this morning - it's been about 8 years since my last visit - since I have vision insurance now, there's really no excuse not to go, other than me being me. All checks out, do need stronger reading glasses, which I knew I'd need. After discussing my options, we settled on a computer specific type. It's a progressive lens, but just for reading, so I can switch back and forth between the handwritten pages next to me and the computer screen the info's going to. I'll just leave those ones at work, and get a stronger set of just book reading glasses for home. I get a pair of glasses a year with the insurance, so in the new year, I'll get those.

Sounds good. I've got to get back to the eye doctor this next year too.

Have you computer glasses?
I could not use my computer without them.
I wear corrective for distance and close up but I do NOT want tri-focals so I can see my computer screen better.
I have had little change in the last few years......
I have to go annually because I have retina problem, have had
two tears, and optic nerve damage from my brain tumor...not sure if the tumor caused it or the surgeries.

I have astigmatism so cannot use the drugstore glasses as others do.

I'm short sighted with an astigmatism, but I don't need reading glasses yet - only a matter of time, though, as both my parents need them.
