Though my eye doctor said I was on the border of needing bifocals, I find myself choosing to move my glasses to the top if my head whilst reading or playing on my phone. This means I spend good bits of time on the bus with no far vision.

It reminds me of when I was a child, refusing to wear my glasses and hoping it would force my vision to improve; of waking up ever hopeful that when I opened my eyes, the world would snap into focus.

It generally leaves me insecure, this feeling of not being able to see, and so it's odd that I am comfortable with my uncorrected nearsightedness now, in public, where I am vulnerable.

Age is weird.

Come to the bifocal side...just make sure you get "no line" ones.

Will try. This is vaguely maddening.

That's a nice photo!

I resisted progressives (don't get the lines if you can afford progressives) for a while, but I'm glad I have them now. My vision is so much clearer with them, and I didn't need any time to adjust.

My dreams were more nightmares -- that I'd go completely blind. :(

oh damn. :(

I feel like I'm already wearing the lined ones because I so often wear readers over my regular glasses..

Sounds uncomfortable! :(

I was able to put off progressives until I was over 50 due to my myopia, almost -11 in one eye and -10 in the other. But I finally had to do it and it was worth it. I'm not sure why I fought it other than not wanting to admit my age. :)

I was mortified when my eye doctor told me I needed bifocals, but you know what? I LOVE THEM! I can READ again! So fucking awesome!

I kinda wanna go back and say 'no no give them to meeee' but I might just try to get a pair through Zenni Optical and see how that goes.

I've been wearing bifocals since 5th grade (the same time I started wearing glasses). To me it's no big deal wearing them all the time. As long as you get glasses that compliment your cuteness (like your current one does) you're good to go.
