Got my new glasses yesterday. Varifocals.

Bottom bit is for reading.. middle bit is for computer.. top bit is for distance.

Far left and middle is blurred.... !


Weird.

And of course I keep misplacing them but where are they usually hiding.. on top of my head!

How long did it take you to get used to your glasses folks?

The real question is, do they look good on you? :)

I for one do not wear glasses as they look horrible on me :(

I was trying to look at her pics but the music was giving me a freaking headache! Let me shut off the volume and see them again.

Hi Dee-I have multifocus contacts. They are the bomb! I hate wearing glasses. The contacts take no getting used to-vision for
Normal, computer and reading just all kind of meld together seamlessly. Highly recommend

But don't you have scratches on your eyelids now Julie?

I hate the thought of touching eyes and feet.. hence no contacts yet.. nor do I do people's feet :P

Those were caused from monovision colored lenses. Thr color is applied to Thr lens and sits on the eye-can cause scratches and irritation. I am known to wear lenses far too long during the day. The cockatoo hates glasses and it's sometimes dangerous to be around a bird who cam strike and take offa nose lol.

Lol at the bird attacks!

I can imagine them trying to perch on the glasses!

I am a glasses noob.. so will need time to progress to lenses... but I can see it happen if my eyesight deteriorates :)

thanks Julie!

I feel for you! LOL I can't see with my glasses on/can't see with them off! Can only imagine trying to acclimate to three different prescriptions! :(

My sister wears those type of glasses, Dee.

Me, I'm very nearsighted and can't see more than twenty feet in front of me without doing a Clint Eastwood expression. I'm also half-blind in my right eye, the result of an accident when I was a kid. I tried contact lenses once and couldn't stand the feel of them in my eyes. If I look like a nerd with my specs on, so be it.:D

I still cannot see out of the bottom (reading) bit. Distance part works fine. My eye doc says I am hopeless. :o

I like you. :)

I think eyeglasses make me look intelligent... I need all the help I can get in that department!

I have the Varilux lenses and they were really easy to get used to. The current pair of glasses, the computer part is a bit too high, but that's what I get for going with a shallower lens.
