Hello everyone. For the past days I am actually having a hard time reading and typing especially using phones. I lost my reading glasses. Yep. I used to hate it and I am in denial of using it but have come at peace with it. I accepted the fact that my eyes need the help from the glasses but only for reading. I used to have two pairs of it but the other one broke so I throw it already. Now the other one I cannot find. And I am trusting auto correct of iPhone to work this out. So forgive me for some typo errors in some comments. Do you use eye glasses/ reading glasses?

@rakski so, if you cannot find it anymore, will you visit your optometrist and have another pair of specs?

@ridingbet I think so. This afternoon, I tried the readiy to wear reading glasses you can buy in optical shops. There is no available for my grade. I just tried 2 grades higher than mine but also trying the shape of the frame which looks like a half circle, lo and behold, it gave me a much better eyesight. So I might as well visit first the my ophtha or maybe the optometrist for a new lens grade

Why don't you buy the glasses that hangs around the neck? I just forgot the name of that type of glasses but I'm sure you can find one in the optical clinic/shop. It has a magnet eitheir in-between the two glass frames or at the back of the neck area.

I use reading glasses and, above all, glasses to watch TV. I have broken a couple of pairs by falling asleep with the glasses on. Now I buy sturdy frames.

@rakski When I do a lot of reading, I have reading glasses. When I'm writing, I'm on the computer, so I have computer glasses. Those are the ones I wear 90% of the time, because I'm on the computer more than I'm doing anything else.

How long before you get a new pair? I am in need of them as well. The funny thing is I tend to wear them even when walking away from the computer. I often laugh but i truly think i have just fallen in love with wearing them. I am getting another pair in a few weeks. I am going to pick out a nice lavender frame. I can't believe I love these glasses.

There was a point before I got glasses that I couldn't read anything unless it was on the phone or computer where I could resize the text to something bigger. Otherwise it was just a blurry smudge.
