I'm officially "OLD"

Today I was fitted for bifocals!

I was tired of taking my glasses off to do a massage, and on again to read the charts, and off again to do this, and on again to do that....so I went today for an eye exam. The good thing is...I've got disposable bifocal contacts! And they feel SO great!

The bad thing is....I also have to have bifocal glasses for reading at night....not that the glasses in themselves are bad, because it is so GREAT to see clearly, but the price was (*&@#$&* and I know DH is going to freak. I went with the next-to-the-least-expensive frames, but I definately wanted the no-glare-no-line-scratch-resistant lenses...and just the lenses themselves without the frames were $145 at WALMART!

I think the eye strain has had alot to do with my headaches lately too, and while reading I would get these blurry spots in the words where some of the letters seemed to disappear, spotty vision. Hopefully this is all solved now!

You're not old, you're visually challenged.
