Something odd happened at the eye doctor today. I thought a long time about whether or not I wanted new glasses or I wanted to switch to contacts. They had an interesting idea. Since I need bifocals, they opted to make my dominant eye the one which can see far away, giving me a contact lens with the correct prescription, -4.25. The other eye will be the eye that reads close-up, so it got a reading glass prescription of -3.0 (normally -4.5ish).
It’s an adjustment. Sometimes my eyes get confused as to what they are supposed to be looking at (close up or far away) and I have to close them and reopen them to get back to normal. A couple of hours into the new process, I think I’m doing pretty good.
At first, I have to admit, I thought, “No freaking way!”, but after the doctor suggested that I should try it because I would have no need for reading glasses, I opted to try it for a week. Then I could really read AND I could really see far away… Wow!
