Every year a couple of weeks after my birthday I notice my vision getting a little fuzzier. I could delay no longer and did the deed and booked an eye appointment. I wear glasses, but over the last few years struggled with a 'progressive' lense and could never find the sweet spot in the lense, driving was always miserable with them, reading impossible, so it seems I am in the small percentage of people who can't wear them.
This leaves me with little options, I now have a prescription for distance and reading = 2 pairs of glasses. I have never tried contacts bit am seriously considering this, the quirky thing would be that one lense would be for reading & the other for distance. Not sure what this will be like for riding or if it is going to completely mess up my eyeballs, but I am not going to rush into this yet. I contemplated laser surgery, but that is not in the budget right now.
I also needed to save some money because as most spectacle wearers know it is very expensive nowadays to get glasses. I decided not to get them from my optician because for the 3 pairs I needed (reading, distance & sunglasses) it was going to cost well over $1600 and change - YIKES!
I decided to give Costco a try and so far I am pretty happy with my new specs. I am waiting for the sunglasses to arrive I bought retro Rayban wayfarer style glasses. So here is the amazing part for 3 pairs of specs it was $384 all in, quite the difference from $1600. I am happy with the lense quality and frame choices.
