I Hate My New Glasses!

Oh, they look fine. I guess I did okay choosing them, considering my eyes were dilated and I can only see about three inches without glasses on.

The problem is I can’t see very well with them. The prescription is fine. Or I suppose it is. It’s the progressive lenses that are giving me trouble and I don’t understand why. I’ve had them before. I got the same kind. They’re very similar in size to the last pair.

But it seems the zones are different. The three different ranges of transition are not proportioned as they were before. So here I am, dipping my chin like some damn bobble-head doll trying to find the right spot to peer out of. No, I can’t just move my eyes. That doesn’t work with this pair of glasses as it did with the last pair. I have to tip my whole head because otherwise all I see is blur.

Yes, I admit it. I’m whining. But, with constant migraines this time of year that interfere with my vision to begin with, this is the last thing I need. I think I’ll just go to bed now. It’s too much effort today to attempt to focus on things. Night.

I guess, nothing is the same. Even though they do look like each other, the fact that this is giving you trouble is proof of that. So, are you planning on getting a new pair or something?

I'd love to but I really can't afford to at this time.
