It seems every once in awhile, I'm out hunting for a pair of new reading glasses. The older I get the stronger the strength that's required. I also now wear glasses to compute and they are, of course, different from the ones needed for reading.

I passed the drivers' license test too. No glasses needed. We are both lucky we do not need prescription glasses. Sometimes I use the lowest-power reading glasses at times.

't least ya can see what'cher buyin', lol. i've prescription specs with bifocals 'n 'm always horrified when i get a new pair 'n see 'em fer the first time...when 'tis too late 'n too much funds invested to get anew. i'd the need to giggle though - the hubs wears 2 pairs 'f readers 't times - dependin' what he's tendin'. wee blueprints require 3 pairs!
