Today’s the day I get my glasses! John is off work, so I have a way to get there and we just have to wait until one of the girls is here to stay with Henrietta. It’s going to be wonderful to have a pair to wear all the time, because I can’t tell you how tired I am of not having the readers where I am trying to read at the moment, they’re always in another room. Or maybe it’s me that’s always in the other room, after all I am the one that’s given to roaming around the house, not them.
OK, it’s now 10:55 PM and I am home with the new glasses on. They aren’t that confusing, but I am not sure they were…”done” right. When something is right straight in front of me it is very clear, but when I have to look slightly off to one side, either way, it is blurry. I don’t mean very far either. It seems to be this way with the far away vision, the mid range and the reading, all. If I am reading a magazine and there are three columns of print, while having my head positioned looking straight at the first column the one on the far right is so blurry I can’t read it well at all. I have to move my head or the magazine. Is this asking too much of a pair of glasses. I’ve never noticed anyone reading a book having to move their head in order to read across the page.
I think they didn’t “do” the prescription all the way across.
Well, God knows I have debated about this, but here’s a damn picture:
Somehow, at this point in my life, the “smart chick” look doesn’t bother me at all. Not sure I can pull it off once I open my mouth, but up until then, I think the glasses I picked out help with the illusion.
They told me to wear them for a week and see what I think. I think I’m going to call them tomorrow and ask why I have to be laser-sighted on target and physically aimed at anything I want to see clearly.
Now, I have to find someone to do something about those chipmunk cheeks.
OH! Before I end this, I have a confession! No! Nothing juicy! No, what I did today was make it over to Lisa’s AGAIN two days in a row now and I was going to take pictures of her gutted kitchen. We went and visited and left and I forgot to take the pictures. Got my glasses and went home and then remembered I needed to take them so John and I went back over to Lisa’s house AGAIN. Got over there and looked in my purse for my trusty(?) camera and I had left it at home.
I really do think God didn’t want me to take any pictures today, cause he obviously made me very forgetful for some reason.

Ooooooh, cute! I have a pair of glasses that are similar to those – but they’re single-vision and now, unfortunately, I’m a bi-focals kinda girl.

You are one of those Lovely Ladies that has a little spark behind the eye! I think you have a bit of a surprise in there just waiting to leap out at the most unsuspecting time!! By the way, Love the glasses! I have had to wear glasses my whole life, and never had a pair that were fuzzy around the sides, that seems odd. Maybe they did something goofy, or your Smurf Ghost seeing abilities are kicking into high gear!!!

LOVE the new specs:) Are you going for the “smart girl” look, or the “naughty librarian” look?? We’ll let John be the judge of that!! You look adorable.
I think God made you forget that camera today because he wanted this post to focus on YOU for a change. It’s about time!!

The glasses look cute! But if you think they aren’t adjusted correctly you should take them back ASAP and make them fix them!

Take the glasses back and have them check them. IF they say everything is OK, ask for a copy of the prescription and take them somewhere else and ask them if the glassses are made according to the prescription. I usually wear contacts, but I got a pair for when I did not want to wear the contacts. I thought they were not correct and took them back and was told everything was OK. How can they be OK when my vision wearing them appears as if I am seven feet tall and the view from my mid-size Chevy S-10 looks like I am driving a huge full-size pickup. Also round things look oval rather than round. I believed them when they said they were OK, assuming I would “get used to them.” I didn’t and now won’t go back after 2 years. DO IT NOW! BY the way, one of the optical companies here advertises that something like 40% of glasses are made incorrectly.

Love the glasses! Um, Fisher got ahold of mine and they are LOPSIDED. That was almost 3 years ago : ) I really should do something about that!
