Amazing Grace
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.
