I understand there's an adjustment period. Wish me luck!


I'm sure its just me; but I'm 68 and been wearing them for "ever" [maybe even longer than that.] And I'm still adjusting. :pray:

hang in there ::):

I usually have to have mine redone 2-3 times - just a hair's difference in the height of where the lenses change
can make all the difference in the world.

One of my problems is that I got lenses that are just about as small as you can go with progressives. Maybe I'd be happier if I'd got a big honkin' pair.

Very true!
In fact, they never could get my last ones right in the smaller lenses - I have to get a separate pair for distance and for readers. (I had Lasik - I have monovision). The bad thing with the distance glasses is, if I use them for driving then things in the car are blurry.

Just wait a while. I'm in the middle of cataract surgery, had one eye done, and the other will be done in 2 weeks. After which I will only have to wear readers. I'm very happy about that since I've worn glasses/contacts full time since 7th grade, quite a few years ago.

Peace,
Lnda

Ah. Cataract surgery. My dh may be facing that before too long.
Hope you have success with both eyes - and get to graduate to the readers only.

The cost of a pair of glasses increases with age.
:shock:
