Yesterday I completed the expensive business of getting new lenses put in my glasses. Now I can more safely drive when I don’t happen to be wearing the contacts. It’s a sorry fact that once your eyes start (and they probably were always bad – I blame the genes) that they really only get worse. Mine are down to a shocking -6.0 and -6.5. If I could afford laser treatment I probably would – but who has a spare $4,000 or so lying around?
