I finally succomb to old age and got my first pair of bifocals (progressive lenses). After 2 years of fighting with not being able to read with or without glasses and fighting to see stitches and having to peer over the top of my glasses in order to read patterns or count stitches or fix mistakes I decided it was time to admit that I needed a different prescription at the bottom. (sigh)
So I got them on Saturday and I’m SO frustrated with them. I can’t find the right distance to hold my work at so I can see and I have NO periferal vision. If I’m not looking right on something it is blurry. Is this right?? The optometrist said it would take a day or two to get used to them, but I’m wondering if I’m supposed to get used to NOT SEEING! I had to back knit last night to fix a counting error and I ended up having to yank my glasses off to see what the stitches were doing. I just want to be able to see again!
