My eyes are getting worse by the day. I’m okay, but the day is coming when it’s going to be a struggle. I tried to use this blog to figure out when I got my current glasses and it failed me. It failed because I was searching for either two broad a keyword, or the wrong keyword.
“New glasses” got me a ton of hits, mostly posts concerning the kids getting their first pairs of glasses. Bifocals got a hit from sometime in 2016 with me speculating that I needed them. I needed to search for “Progressive Lenses”. That would have brought me to the right post, but I didn’t think of that.
Instead I went to Flickr. I started in Spring of 2018, thinking it’s probably been two years or so. I scrolled back in time until I found a picture of myself without glasses on, and then scrolled forward and there it was.
September 11, 2017. Not only an anniversary of tragedy, but also the day I got my first pair of non-reading glasses. My first pair of always on’s.
Once the COVID-CRAZY ends, I have to get myself to an eye doctor and get my prescription updated. Maybe I can get some frames that are less likely to slide down my nose… unlikely given the size of that nose. Yikes.
