How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me…
I once was lost, but now I’m found
‘Twas blind, but now I see…
The first thing I noticed when I picked up my glasses (set of two) was how suddenly clear the text before my eyes became.
The bottom three lines of text on a piece of carboard I was shown went from blurry-incomprehensible, to an almost-alarming level of clarity.
Reading in bed is going to be so much easier.
My intention is to use the multi-focals at work – where I’ll probably need to go between reading and typing and having face-to-face conversations – and to keep the reading glasses strictly for home.
On the way home I thought I’d keep the multi-focals on, in an effort to get a little acclimatised to them. According to Damo, it should take no more than half-a-day.
Nonetheless, walking was quite a disorienting experience, as my natural inclination is to look down when I’m walking. There are probably self-esteem issues there, but of course, that is where the reading lens is focussed. Quite an odd feeling, I must say…
And then, on arriving home I’ve discovered my keyboard is filthy, and I really should clipper my nails.
These are the downsides of suddenly being able to see things so clearly.

oooh! they look fab!
I know what you mean about the clarity. I don’t have a very strong prescription, but when I first got my reading glasses it was as though someone had cleaned my eyes with windex.
I just bought a second pair to use at home (I have a horrible habit of leaving mine at work). It really is amazing how you can have no idea that your vision needs a little boost and how wonderful and surprising it is that everything is so sharp.
They look great on you!
Wow. You look really handsome in those. ;-)
Thanks Peter, Carol and DR for your nice comments. And nice to meet you DR.
I also received some nice comments on Facebook….
So it looks like the choice was a good one. What a relief!!
Yeah, neat glasses. You look like a businessman. Wait, is that good thing?
You’re supposed to say I look hot, not “you look like a businessman”. Sheesh. Actually wearing my second pair right now, as I forget to bring my proper ones home. The second pair aren’t as sexy, though.
Uh yeah, sure, ‘hot.’
They look really good on you James…nice choice! But I must agree, you do look like a businessman with them…but I do think that’s a good thing! :-)
