Glasses

I am not so much with the liking of the glasses. Not yet anyway.

1. My vision at a distance is worse through the glasses. My left eye is fine. My right eye is far-sighted. With the glasses anything at a distance becomes fuzzier.

2. I have a splitting headache, much as if I drank too much caffeine. Of course, this headache could be from too much caffeine, as I've had a bunch today.

3. I can't focus. The doc wrote prism into my prescription because I was getting double vision when she was figuring out the other parts. The prism is supposed to correct for double-vision. Unfortunately, it seems to be off, particularly at the top of the glasses. I'm getting lots of doubling there. Elsewhere my vision isn't doubling, but focusing with glasses is definitely not a natural thing. I'm not sure if this is normal and I will adjust over time, or if something is wrong. We'll find out in a few weeks.

4. My peripheral vision is fucked.

I will wear them for a couple of weeks to adjust, then go back in if necessary.

On the plus side, I do think I look pretty good in them.
