I never noticed that my fibro has anything to do with my vision. It's more about how much reading and computer work I do than anything else--plus, not only am I diabetic with retinopathy issues to watch for, I have dry eye syndrome AND the beginning of cataracts, so I'm not sure what I could say here that would help any! LOL

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

I have progressive lenses for mine and get along well. My FM is in the back, neck, hips and arms, pretty much all over. If I can't tilt my head, I can slide my glasses up/down my nose a little and it seems to work for me. I had gone between 2 pair of glasses and it was a difficult thing for me, switching back & forth, finding where I put the one pair I needed at that moment. That was the 1st I needed different strengths. Good luck in finding something that works for you!


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Hi all,

I just found out I need to have a separate reading prescription from my distance prescription. My fibromyalgia started in my neck and usually is worst there. I was reminded about pain from adjusting my neck yesterday while dealing with off kilter glasses (I broke them on the bridge and had to hold them together there with adhesive for a few hours til I could get to my spare ones). Instead of bifocals, I requested separate reading glasses. Can anyone tell me about any problems they have had with bifocals and neck issues from the fibro, or how you can avoid additional neck pain and possible effects from them?

Thanks emoticon
