うさ-p: It got all pruny in the brain water.
I don't know how long it's been since the last time I got new glasses. 4 years? Probably. I hate adjusting to new glasses, but mostly I hate the cost. $500 is a lot, mostly for the lenses. Granted, being able to see is always worth it after the fact, but it's so easy to get used to bad vision.
My current pair of glasses haven't sat well on my face for years which makes them refract wrongly, and all the anti-glare covering is peeling off and making the lenses fuzzy, and my skin chemistry is making frames half disintegrate, and, you know, I can't read license plates or street signs, and yesterday I tried to read a manga and the furigana were impossible so a replacement is long overdue. I got a $600 bonus at work today, so ... no more excuses.
Turns out that my vision has gotten worse (-7.5) after having been more or less stable for many years at -7.1 to -7.2. It will be interesting for the world to be in focus again, and probably help the headaches.
Stay tuned for adventures resulting from adequate vision!
