there's good news and bad news
I went to the optometrist,
because this ^ happened, so I chose new frames and discovered I had to have a new eye test because my old prescriptions are almost three years old. I decided I might as well get new reading/computer glasses as well, so chose another pair of frames. Is pair correct? Same style as the first choice but in a different colour.
The eye test discovered that my bifocal prescription hadn't needed changing, but the reading/computer glasses were actually too strong, yet they'd been fine in the beginning.
On to the next step, which is the eye health check, this is voluntary, $60 and not covered by medicare.
Now comes the bad news: I have the beginnings of cataracts in both eyes 😢
The good news? We no longer live in the 1700s when people just went blind. We now have surgery available to fix this 😀 which is a very good thing because I would be a very cranky River if I could no longer read or watch TV!
New glasses will be ready in 2-3 weeks. In the meantime, to watch TV, I'm wearing my sunglasses, which are also bifocal.
