I've been wearing reading glasses since I was in college. It's been no big deal...I put them on when I'm reading or stitching...or when my eyes would feel tired. But lately, I noticed that I was putting them on more often and leaving them on longer. So when Mckenzie needed her eyes checked, I thought it would be a good time for me to go in as well. (it'd been 5 years since I'd seen my eye doctor). Well, he nicely informed me that I'd hit that stage of life when lenses dry out and eyes become less elastic and he went on about my prescription needs having changed...really it was all downhill from there. So I got these new glasses.
