I got my new glasses last Saturday. It all started about a year ago when I realized that I could see better to read without my glasses. My eye doctor had been warning me for years that this was coming, so I wasn't shocked. I gave him a call to schedule our yearly appointments and much to my disappointment they no longer took our insurance. This is a real bummer because the whole family likes him - he's great with the kids, his office people are wonderful. Sadness all around on our part.
I decide that I will wait until our friend from church who is an eye doctor opens his new place and then go see him. In the mean time I stop wearing my glasses and I get very used to that. The office opens and I start to say "I need to call and schedule my eye exam." This goes on for months. Then we buy our business. Then I say it some more. Sigh....
Finally I make the appointment and go in. This is the result.
Glasses once more, with a progressive lens. They were relatively easy to adjust too. I am now officially old.
This is my epic pose...do I look noble?
This is me laughing after the "epic" pose!
Here you can see all my fine lines...and the cute sides of my "Sophia Loren" frames.
Now I am seeing well, and it is scary. I liked looking at myself with my own 'soft filter' of bad eyesight!
So now confession time to make me feel better...how many of you have a bifocal?
