GLASSES + NEW TABLE


Is anyone else like me and hates their glasses.
My eyes are now requiring three different strength of lenses.
One pair for distance.  One pair for the computer and another pair for close work.
And so I am constantly putting them on and taking them off  and its driving me mad.


I think I may consider some varifocals next time I am tested but probably will still require a pair for my close work.


Here's the new small table that we bought from ikea, I thought I would keep our library books on the bottom shelf but Rupert had other thoughts and settled down quite nicely thankyou. lol

  2. Yes, get varifocals, I've had them for years. Although I hate specs they are a necessary evil. When I do close work I take them off and hold the sewing closer to my face. Or if I am painting I have my work on the table and lean over to get closer to it. Works fine for me.

  3. I have prescription glasses that I only wear when Im driving. Then I have readers for reading and anything too small. I have about 6 pairs of readers that I try to keep in certain places and it drives me nuts when I set them down s9mewhere else and spend forever trying to find them

  4. I only wear my glasses now and again thank goodness. I only have a problem with one eye. So I wear one contact lens most of the time which means I have perfect near and far eyesight and better than glasses. Although I do need some new ones.

  6. I need to get new glasses. I thought my eyes wouldn't need a different Rx after I had my cataract surgery, but no, the old glasses need to be changed out. I play the game of several pair, but walking around, I can get by without. (Unless I am looking for something specific - then I'm blind as a bat.)

  7. Looks like instead of books, you will be putting a cushion on that table shelf! YES!! I have bifocals, and another pair of glasses for the computer. BUT after a couple years, I only need my bottom bifocal for the computer. So now I have bifocals and had the bottom part made into an entire lens for the computer. Still two pairs of glasses, but only two lens types. I know this sounds so confusing!

  9. Yes, I have three pairs the same as you, reading, distance and computer. I was told by an Optician that I shouldn't have bi-focals or vari-focals because of my balance problems. I don't know if I would have wanted them anyway.

  12. I have vari-focals and reading glasses, the only thing I find is having to be careful decending stairs, making sure to look through the right place lol. Love the way furries just have to check out anything new xcx

  13. I love my glasses. Otherwise I couldn't see! Ha-ha! But yes, I need different ones for the same reasons and it is a pain. Also have trouble judging distance when walking down stairs and trying to see what's right in front of my feet.
    We should write a book, 'Decorating With Cats'. He looks so right sitting under there. The perfect piece of art for that particular place.

  14. I bet your opticians would have some ideas for bi- or tri-focals. But I'm sure they won't come cheap! I only use glasses for reading and even that is enough to drive me bonkers -- they're never at hand when I need them!

  15. Verifocals are a good idea...Rupert has found a new nest, LOL!

  16. HAHA....looks like that table is being used for just what it needs to be used for! I love it...glasses. I really don't like wearing glasses. I have a pair for my distance and others for crafts and reading small print. I really don't need them for the computer. But I also have my distance prescribe sunglasses.

  17. Clearly, this is a problem for a lot of us, and all the comments make sense in individual situations. Personally, I think tri-focals are most efficient, but they do take getting used to; as someone said, walking down stairs and off curbs can be challenging until you've adapted. But in my experience, that didn't take too long, and was less of an inconvenience than having to shift through several pairs of specs (that of course, I didn't have handy when I needed them). If you decide to try bi or tri-focals, I would caution you against a mistake I made when quite small lenses seemed to be in fashion. The lenses were so small that the correction for reading was an extremely tiny dot at the bottom of the lenses! So buy your glasses from someone old enough to understand that you are more interested in vision than fashion. Good luck.
