  •  Sorry, FloridaSNMOM, I didn't know you were (9+ / 0-)

    feeling bad, or I would have sent my biggest get well wishes immediately.

    I'm glad to hear you got the no-line glasses. I think you'll like them once you get used to them.

    Here's hoping the nausea is gone by the time you read this!

    •  Gall bladder issues. (11+ / 0-)

      I was in the hospital for a couple of days, but they say it's not bad enough to take it out yet. It's a lot better than it was, but I'm still having my moments.

      As to the glasses, yeah, once I get used to them. I'm looking forward to being able to read things on the TV screen again (like the TV guide or the ice skating scores). Doesn't help that things being out of focus has always made me feel queasy.

      •  just a note, Florida--those lineless bifocals can (5+ / 0-)

        be very difficult to get used to.  It's an "advancement" of sorts, but going with the distance corrective lenses and taking them off for close vision is not the worst thing in the world--even if it's not on the cutting edge of technology--assuming you have trouble with the lineless bi-focals.

        I'm going to look into this "Superfocus" thing--which apparently allows you to adjust your lenses for distance, medium and close range with a little slide on top. Expensive, but could solve a lot of problems.

          Though apparently my left eye has correction for all three ranges, though the close is very minimal. The right has just distance and just the little for close which he said is mostly a refocusing issue after the distance.
