Last week, I had an eye appointment for new glasses. I ordered two pairs. Normally, I wear contacts during the day and glasses at night, however I have not purchased new prescription glasses in over 10 years so I thought it was time.
The new glasses are on the way. With all of the advancements in eye care treatment, I am rather old school as to how I handle my eye care needs:
- Very near-sighted
- Aging eyes (need reading glasses)
- Use computers a lot
I prefer to handle each of these issues separately rather than a single correction (contacts or glasses). The reason? The astigmatic issue, in my case- eyes are slightly off center, and at times causes dizziness and headaches depending on the type of vision wear.
I prefer contacts and over the counter reading glasses most of the time and prescription glasses without the bifocal for night time wear.
PS- Why do I have on PJs and makeup? I work from a home-office and often leave my hair pinned up, unless going out. When I have to take it out (should be every other day), sometimes I want to see if I still know how to apply makeup. I took photos because I thought my hair looked nice. Photo on the right shows the squinting issue without my reading glasses.
