New Phase of my Life....Ready or Not!!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Boise Idaho SP20114

I have worn glasses since I was just starting the first grade

For those of you who are counting....that would be for

more than 40 years....

I have a very bad astigmatism...I have kept this under control with gas permeable contacts since I was 16 years old.  We have tried soft lenses but they just don't correct my vision the way I would like.   Reader Glasses

The past year or so I have noticed a big change in my eyes

Not sure if it is all of the computer work I have been doing....

or just old age...

At any rate the Optometrist today gave me the news I have been dreading...

To much of a disparity between my close up and my distance vision..,,,

So I got these new lenses to see if we can decide if we can correct the vision with "readers" 

So here we go...a new phase in my life...Ready or Not!!!

I too have worn glasses since 3rd grade before getting my first contact lenses in 9th grade. It changed my life and I became one of the popular girls. Now, I still wear contact lenses but also reading glasses when I am working on the computer or reading a book. Your eyes do change over time and I guess we have to just flow with the changes. Life is still good.

Deborah, think of the glasses as a fashion accessory, at least that is what I tell myself!

You know Deborah, glasses are actually very stylish, and less trouble than contact lenses.  Also, I truly believe that the small font sizes we are glued to daily is destroying our collective eyesight.  Good luck with the new eyes.

I hear ya girlfriend.  I have to wear glasses for distance.  I take them off to look at menus and eat or read.  Now they are saying the computer is straining my eyes, so I got some new "working on the computer" glasses.  they have fancy flowers on the side.  Hey if I have to be a four eyes, at least I can have fun.  Its all good.

I have to keep several pair of readers around the house, in the car, and in my purse. I am always misplacing them, and I can't see anything close up without them. I like to have lots of spares!

Hey Deb, I guess I have been lucky for lots of years but now it is catching up with me. I have readers but think between my sugar problem and aging I need more.

Belinda....I got bling on my regular glasses but the stem broke after 2 weeks and they are discontinued so I had to choose new frames....not as blingy...but pretty stylish!  LOL 

Rose...I am sure I will be the same way...I am so forgetful about things like that!   LOL

Will....get that sugar under control...I hate that age catches up with us!  

Thanks Tom...I will adjust one way or another...hate admitting it is age though!  LOL

Debbie, I,too,  have noticed more and more trips to the optomotrist with stronger and stronger glasses.  Oh well, at least I can be sure I'm keeping up with fashion, LOL.

Deborah   Sarah Palin move over!  I started with 4 eyes in the 6th grade.  When I turned 50 I had Lasik eye surgery.  That was about the time of life when I was going to start with reading glasses.  The surgery guaranteed reading glasses and I have several pairs.  But, I don't have to put on glasses to get out of bed or answer the phone.  Did I say Move over, Sarah?  Enjoy the day!
