Well, it's unanimous.
I have middle aged eyes.
The last time I got new spectacles I was very deliberate about getting a pair that were narrow enough and that sat high enough on my nose so I could look under them.
For reading the fine print without having to push them up on my forehead in public.
Then I started to notice that things like playing the piano or reading music from a music stand was awkward.
I couldn't see the notes.
With glasses ON, it was a little too close, and things were fuzzy. With glasses OFF it was a little too far and things were fuzzy.
Last night Hillary was using my laptop, so I went to check email on the desktop computer downstairs.
GOOD GRIEF, Charlie Brown.
Could I see?
The monitor, at the back of the computer desk, was at that frustrating distance that makes it impossible to read. Especially when I was sitting a sliding- keyboard- tray- length away from the desk.
I've thought it before, but it was certainly driven home last night when I was looking under my glasses to see the keyboard, then trying to focus over or through my glasses to see the monitor...
That if I had a desk job I would SO be in progressive lenses by now.
Hysterectomy... old eyes... aching bones...
I feel very a-ged since last week at this time...
