Yesterday I finally found my computer glasses.
The past few months have been awkward (I love fitting that adjective in) while working on the computer as I have to take OFF my glasses and increase the font on all pages. The distance to monitor is too close for my trifocals yet a little too far for naked eyes. The red computer glasses are just right!
My handy dandy optometrist said I need cataract removal on the left eye in a few months. Which poses the question of having a permanent contact lens inserted. She also suggested that I have distance lens in one eye and reading lens in the other eye. This just sounds pretty awkward to me! Do any of you do this? Is it possible that your eyes will work together in this way?
In the meantime, IF I have the permanent lens in one eye, the right eye has another year or more before it is bad enough for insurance to pay. SO ... does this mean I have glasses with just one lens? Or do I try (for the umpteenth time) to wear a contact in the other eye?
Mr. Ralph had one eye done with the permanent contact lens. He had worn contacts for 40 years, so wearing just one wasn't a problem for him. Except when it came to reading in bed. He needed reading glasses for just one eye!
My snorkel mask is optically adjusted. I will need to get a plain one after the surgery .... or maybe a computer-distance prescription? Goodness ... it's always something!
