I can't look at it for more than 20 minutes without starting to feel some eye strain.
That's because cool new things aren't designed for old blind people.
Ah! That explains it. I'm guilty on that score.
I keep getting talked into these %#$! "Progressive" lenses that just drive me nutz.
Actually, mine were called progressive "bifocal" lenses. (Sorry for the confusion if I used the wrong term.) Supposedly that means they progress between two
distinct strengths as opposed to some that have a specific third strength (trifocal?) somewhere in them. Or so it was "explained" to me when I got mine.
It took me a few days to teach just
my eyes to move instead of my entire head in order to find the sweet spot. Guess I'm just lucky. My GF can use them too. But her
Mom, my Mom, my two sisters, and three of our friends absolutely can't stand progressive lenses. They've all got the ones with "the line" and a top and bottom.
But I also had an incentive
. My pair cost a lot
. I don't have optical coverage, so I really couldn't afford to go back and get a different pair if I didn't like what I ordered. And since I need glasses for just about everything
, I really had no choice but to figure out how to use them and adapt.
So it goes.
