The eyewear saga continues.... I picked up my new glasses from the Eye Doc last week and absolutely hated them. I went with Progressive Lenses. I should know better than to trust anything labeled as "Progressive".
Big on wonderful promises, very expensive, and ultimately disappointing in actual practical application.
Near vision was good, for small print up close, which was nice. However, my distance vision sucked even worse than it did before. I could see better with my non-dominant left eye but my right eye was worse with the glasses than without. When you add in the blurriness of everything not directly in line with your nose and it was double suck.
I went back to the Doc and it seems that I have natural monovision, meaning that one of my eyes wants to focus on stuff at distance and the other only wants to focus on nearby stuff. They have a surgery that they do to bring this about intentionally, but my eyes do it all on their own. The solution to my vision woes is a new set of glasses, prescription altered for the right eye, and sans Progressive lenses. I'm going with regular old bifocals this time for (hopefully) a wider clear field of vision.
I don't care a flip about the bifocal line.... I have sufficient grey hair that vanity over a line on my glasses isn't really a factor :).
