I am now 50 years old. Dang. My eyes are not working as well. I have always had glasses but now I need to start using reading and regular glasses for clearly seeing things at a distance. The last few glasses I’ve had were ‘progressive’ lenses. The idea here is that the top portion is for your far distance prescription and then they transition gradually to a reading prescription. In general, they work but I find they make too many compromises.
I have tried two manufacturers of these lenses, and both were the same. Reasonably sharp down the middle but a mess of sharpness on the peripherals. In the end, I really do not like them. I am going back to single focal length glasses. Maybe in the future, if I find that solution is not working anymore, I will try bifocals. Even though they look like old people’s glasses, I do not care. Clear vision is more important to me.
Also, had to go to the doctor for some reason and as soon as he noticed I was 50, he seemed a little cheery about handing me a form with all sorts of tests. “Oh, they will be taking samples from all sorts of places.” Ugh. Currently fasting for 12 hours because one of the tests requires it. Only water until tomorrow at 1 pm. Swell.
