Went for a vision test for the first time in 5 years. My near vision's been getting bad the last couple years (I will be 49 this year). My regular prescription (nearsighted, astigmatism) hasn't changed much -- just the near vision.
I don't want bifocals, so I asked for 2 scripts -- one for regular and one for reading, so I will be switching glasses back and forth. Are bifocals that bad? Or do you get used to them? Maybe I will get a pair to see (pardon the pun) if they work.
I have "Progressives" (like bifocals whereby one lens fades to the next...) They seem to be great for looking forward or into the distance (Driving for instance, which I do for a living), but up close reading I do have to tilt my head back just a tiny bit more than I'd like...I did get used to them pretty quickly though. Maybe I should try reading glasses sometimes and see if it's easier...
