Life with Bifocals

One knows one is growing old when one gets bifocals!

I got mine this week. It has been a couple days since I have been using them, and it hasn’t been easy adjusting with them.  I guess I will have to get used to life with them. The alternative of switching between two pairs of glasses isn’t exactly appealing. Given my high number (-10 and -12 in the two eyes), there aren’t too many other options.

I got specs when I was 10 years old. (I am now 42.)  I hope the bifocals don’t limit my ability to read and work on the computer — two tasks which are the cornerstone of my life. For now, the reading vision has definitely improved, but the computer working isn’t easy for now. I guess I will get used to the bifocals in the days to come.
