I had my eyes tested today, and got the totally unsurprising news that my distance vision ain't what it used to be and my close up vision is worse than it was.
My choices are two pairs of glasses or one pair of these progressive lens things. I already spend a good 2 hours a day looking for my reading glasses (don't tell ME they don't teleport), so the prospect of a second set of timewasters is not attractive.
However, I understand that with progressive lenses you have to learn to read moving your head more than your eyes, because the appropriate focus area in the lenses is quite small.
Books and reading are an enormous part of my life; I love to read and I love printed books. I'm accustomed to reading fast, which means that I generally use only 2 or 3 eye movements for a line of text and read phrases, rather than words. I'm a bit desperate at the thought of messing with that ability.
Anyone got any relevant experiences? Suggestions?
