So recently I've been having issues with my eyes aching... I know its because I need glasses but I've been in denial for a really long time now. However, just reading my 'blogs I follow' each morning has been causing me pain now for a couple of months. Recently, it has been bad enough that I booked an appointment with the local optometrist here on the island.
While my eyes are not 'bad', they are out of wack. I have been (mostly) using 1.50 reading glasses circa Walmart for several years now but that just hasn't been enough. So the optometrist tells me I'm a 2.00 which explains why Brad's 1.75-2.00's have been working better for me. However while the optometrist says my eyes are 'unremarkable', it seems the ache is coming from the strain of adjusting from near to far...
With prescription in hand off I went to the local eyeglass shop. I knew with the amount of time I spend on the computer/laptop/ipad/iphone that I needed a blue screen filter on my lenses and I also wanted sunglass tinting and obviously progressive lenses too to help with the near/far focus adjustment.
The very first pair I picked out are the ones I ended up with. I was in the shop for maybe 20 minutes and only because I sent pics back to Brad for his input and he also chose the first pair I picked out...
Here are the options I picked to choose from:
I had narrowed it down to 2: #3 and #5
In the end I chose #3
