  1. 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 got used to bifocals pretty quickly, they really aren't that bad.  Mine seem to be "far" and "medium" though. I often look under my glasses to read or see things close up.  It's way easier than having two sets of glasses, imho.  Worth a try, imho, I like them.

      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...
