There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
I have new glasses

I'm trying to decide if they actually make me look old, or if it's just that knowing they're progressives is making me feel old.

Not that I'm opposed to getting older. Especially when you consider the alternative. It's just... progressive lenses, y'know?

Photos to follow.

gridlore expects he'll come out of his next eyecare appointment with a bifocal scrip. So yeah, I get it.

[Dammit, I am getting really tired of LJ eating my comments...]

Overall, yeah. My eyes don't seem as tired at the end of the day as they used to — I used to take them off at the end of the day and just hold my book up close to my nose, but I haven't needed to do that with the new ones.

The blurry peripheral vision think is a little annoying, though.

I just went for a half-strength pair for use at work. Progressive lenses would confuse me. I like my reality blurry, but would prefer it to be at a consistent level of blurriness.

I figured, based on my father's experience (and I seem to take after him, eyesight-wise) that progressives are in my future, so I might as well start now and get used to them. All the articles I've read say it's best to start when the difference between the corrections is small, to minimize problems.

Overall, I think I'm adapting to them okay. Being hypersense-girl, I may need to take them back to say "everything's fine, except for the reflection I'm getting off the edge of the lenses, inside the frame. My optical benefits are supposed to cover having the edges polished matte, so... howzabout it?"
