Re: You'll gradually adjust to the lines.....

Steve Kniffen
I've had bifocals with lines for about 10 years now. I got them when I couldn't clearly read the scores of a basketball game on my 48" TV. Took me a while to get used to them, but I finally did. Going down stairs was the worst thing. What I found was that almost everything I need to clearly focus on for detail is about an arm's length away from my face: speedometer, car radio, GPS unit, computer screen, and lathe. I had my optometrist adjust the reading lenses so they focus at arm's length. Now everything comes in clearly. I also bit the bullet and got prescription safety glasses. I wear them every day so I don't forget them when I go to the shop. Now my eyes are protected, I can see clearly, and I don't have to mess with goggles over my prescription glasses. The weight difference between safety frames/glasses and regular ones is negligible. They fit well under my face shield, too.
