New glasses

After nearly THREE MONTHS of waiting, my new glasses FINALLY came in.

They are "At Last" lenses and supposed to be a better progressive for me because of my balance issues. I need distance and I need close up, but need the close up more so I was sacrificing the distance. I have reading glasses all over the house, at work, and in my purse.

These will take some getting used to because there is still a line of sorts. It's got sort of a bubble in the close-up vision area and then there is a mid-range area, and finally, the distance. It's not too bad.

They had come in to the optical department at my doctor's office at least three other times but they were so scratched up that they wouldn't send them out to me. They did end up giving me the lenses FOR FREE! They accepted insurance assignment and didn't charge me for the balance, which was substantial considering they're progressing (tri)bifocals.

What do you think?

Taken with my computer's web cam so not great pictures.

Very stylish. My next pair are going to have to be tri. The distance to computer monitor is different than my reading and distance lenses now. Fun to get old isn't it?

They look very nice Teresa - I like the sides. I actually ordered a new pair of glasses yesterday, but hope they don't take so long as yours!! I have vari-focals and, for the first time, I have ordered them with reactalight lenses, as it's such a pain always having to carry my prescription sunglasses around with me. Hope you get on with yours okay. It might take a little while.

ooooh I am jealous. You look so great in glasses! Ever notice I take mine off for pics, heehee.

Perhaps I wouldn't if I could look as great as you.

Nice job Tee.

Hooray for your new glasses! You look tres hip.
Bummer about your burned hand, though. Ouch.

Yes, indeed! Very stylish. There is nothing as sweet as a new pair of "scratch free" glasses! Don't ever use tissue or paper as it scratches the lens. I learned this the hard way...only special cloth from glass guy, or a soft tee shirt. Aaaaaahhhh, I LOVE being able to see. Whole new perspective on life.
