Staving Off Inevitability

I got reading glasses, well, progressive lenses, put it off as long as I possibly could, can make due with regular glasses, but easier at the computer and duh, reading, with these. Turning my head from left to right and right to left and everything is warping. I guess sooner or later, I'm gonna be the guy with the glasses in the straps hanging from my neck, and tilting my head down, looking at people when I talk.

Sigh.

I couldn't get used to progressive lenses. I wear regular bifocals most of the time and have a pair for just computer work that has mid-range and reading focal settings.

Don't wear them golfing Steve!

I don't have problems with bifocals golfing.   I know there is a thread already about the subject but the progressive lenses have never been an issue for me.  I do believe I'm one of the exceptions to the norm.

I've played with them, but didn't really like it except being able to read the scorecard.

You don't need to read the scorecard, that's what the seeing eye dog is for!  :whistle:

It's amazing the price differential. I priced a pair at Warby Parker's, it was well over 500 USD although I did opt for all the extras. And not all stores let me fill in the prescription, there are more restrictions when opting for progressive lenses. I already bought a monofocus pair from WP, always have backup I say, so shopped around. Found a pair w/progressive lenses for 150 USD at another online store. I didn't want to go all out on my first pair as not sure how I will take to them and I am buying all these glasses. So far I think they did a good job with the lenses, the turnaround time was much longer, 10 days as opposed to like 2 for WP, but not in a rush. So now I have progressive, monofocus, prescription sunglasses and regular sunglasses. Jeez. 

PSA: Shop around, there is a lot of price variability. 

Also, don't get plastic frames that have a thin body around the lenses. More apt to break. This was a backup pair I got last year. Gorilla Glued it and used it at home but that kind of sucks.

Yeah.....I’ve had to resort to readers myself. I use them when I have to do procedures as well; suturing, I&D’s...getting old isn’t fun. Nope.
