Diet Glasses

Thursday, October 11, 2012

This is going to be a strange post..I used to wear glasses for distance..they were as thick as pop bottle bottoms...and was almost considered legally blind..I had RK surgery when in my late 30's and got them fixed. I still have some bends in the curves of my eyes which make it hard to focus sometimes especially at night so I rarely drive at night now..but it has been like a miracle being able to see distance especially to read a clock at night with out fumbling for my glasses. I have gradually gone to the drug store readers..and try to buy mine at the dollar tree. I still go in occasionally for an eye exam and think now one is needed.. I've had to go to stronger and stronger readers and the other day I even drove with them think my eyes are now getting bad again. And also found myself eating with my glasses on this morning..didn't realize it until I had finished and went back to my rug hooking..Also when I went to get my license renewed this year, I wasn't sure I could use my readers so almost didn't pass the sister told me later I could have used the readers..Anyway I'm thankful for what I can see and not having to wear those heavy pop bottle bottoms.

    I know what you mean about going stronger and stronger on the readers. I wear bifocals, but when I am doing any needle work, I have to use the cheaters that are a higher magnification or I can't see the work.

I hope you can get in soon to see your eye doctor.

    Loved the cartoon and I also love the fact that you do not need those pop bottle glasses anymore.
