read 'em and weep

well, i am finally getting to the point of needing reading glasses.

i recently had my contact prescription adjusted to re-calibrate one eye handling objects less than arm's length and the other focusing at a distance. the focal lengths left a big transition between the two. the adjustment shortened that gap.

the result is a decent, unaided distance focus, but the cost seems to be my reading the closer things. of course, my age plays a factor in this too. i am not dismissing that. i think even if i stopped wearing the lenses at night, i wouldn't regain enough of my near-sightedness to avoid the readers.

as such, i have purchased reading glasses which are compact enough for the case to fit in my pocket. unlike some colleagues, i have no problem accepting this sort of thing in my life. if i need them, i need them.

here's the amazon like to what i picked up:

Reading Glasses 2 Pair Black and Gunmetal Readers Compact Folding Glasses for Reading for Men and Women Case Included +1.25 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DKW5P9U?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
nice and compact!

i knew it was coming. gotta learn to adjust.
