  •  PS: Reading glasses are cheap (8+ / 0-)

    and you can get them at your local pharmacy.  They come in different strengths.  Take a newspaper or book you have trouble reading and try some on.  It could be as simple as that.

    My problem is more severe: I've been wearing glasses since third grade and one eye is much worse than the other.  Also, I can see whatever's close up -- I can read without my glasses -- but can't see very far away.

    Why I'm afraid I need trifocals: I'm having trouble reading the NYT through my bifocals, but am using the bifocals to make dkos come into focus.  (Terrible strain on my neck muscles, btw.  The things we do for love of this place...)

    •  Yup. Dr. Walgreen was my dad's (7+ / 0-)

      favorite.  He went through reading glasses like crazy.  Now, you can pick them up everywhere, including the grocery store and dollar stores.  Most of my choir members have a cheap pair in their music drawers, another at work, in their pocket or purse, etc.

      I agree about the light.  As much as I like a bright, sunny day, going outdoors can be almost painful.  I'm sure staring at this screen isn't exactly great for my eyes, either.  :-)

    •  After my eyeglasses self-destructed in '11 (0+ / 0-)

      I got a pair of reading glasses at a Flying J/Pilot store -- $10. With a nice little metal case to keep them in!

      Being me, what I want is a pair of safety glasses that wrap-around and incorporate my Rx lenses.
