New Glasses

After more than 10 years, I finally decided to get me a new pair of eyeglasses...prescription eyeglasses that is. My old ones are about 13 years old....teenagers in other words. I don't really wear glasses on a daily basis, only when I travel or when I have a headache due to my astigmatism. But I noticed about a year ago that I can no longer read fine prints as well as I used to even when I was wearing the old pair so I asked my eye doctor to prescribe me a new pair last year. He said my eyes are not that bad yet so he recommended to use the over the counter reading glasses. I did just that and they helped but I got tired switching glasses so I asked him to prescribe me a new pair again last time I was there. I told him I'm tired of switching glasses and the old ones need to 'retire' already...so he did.

What can I say? Prescription eye glasses are e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e! I almost backed out the last minute because they're running by the hundreds of $$$ a pair. CRAZY!! The over the counter reading glasses are $10 a pair but I knew I needed new prescription glasses so I went ahead ordered a new pair...against my will I must say. And yesterday...we picked them up from the store. I'm still trying to get used to them since they are progressive glasses. They made me dizzy yesterday but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I probably won't be wearing them daily...just when I need to. Hopefully I won't need a new pair in another, 13 years, maybe?
