SOMETHING'S gotta give....


Previous Entry SOMETHING'S gotta give.... Nov. 15th, 2011 @ 11:24 am Next Entry
I am having LOTS more headaches. Old glasses/New glasses - it doesn't matter. Well, except that the headache starts later with my old glasses....but STILL. I'm having a heck of a time seeing the computer screen - with the iPad, it's no big deal; I take the glasses OFF and hold the tablet 4" from my nose. The laptop? Not so much. And when I embiggen the screen, I can't see the entire spreadsheet (for work), and....then I can't read the check stubs, unless I take my glasses OFF.....which makes the laptop unreadable...and....I quit. :sigh:

The pig is still AWOL, as far as I know. Haven't seen him since yesterday afternoon.....hope piggy's ok.

Tomorrow is a wash - SG's aunt is spending the day with us. Her house is being deodorized, and she can't be there during and for 15 hours after. So....we'll have a houseguest tomorrow and tomorrow evening. So - hopefully we'll get school done before she gets here so we can spend the day socializing.

I gotta round up a bag so I can take the unfinished work to Cyn's house - our contact is picking it up Thursday. :sigh: First time I haven't gotten the stuff finished...but I can't. :bangs head:

See ya!

I forget how long it is (I will check on it though) there is a certain number of hours you have to use your new glasses before your eyes adjust to the new and improved vision and the headaches go away. Just soemthing you have to work through - sorry. Your brain has been trying to compensate in one direction for a while and it has to reboot with the new program. Once your eyes and brain are on speaking terms again you will feel much better.

I know that - but, in all the years I've been wearing glasses, I've NEVER had this problem. (I got my first pair at...6, I think. I'm 42 now....)

Mild headaches for a day or so, yes - but this? Is not mild. I can't tell if it's because they screwed up the prescription (the doc said it didn't change that much - some, yes, but it wasn't a huge change - ; the "big" thing was the bifocal) or if it's because of the lack of anti-glare. :sigh:

My husband and my dad both took a LONG time to adjust to their bifocals.
My husband especially. He could NOT read with the dang things for a long time.

Joy. These aren't Bi-focals, though - they're SINGLE VISION. Because they didn't do them right...which is why we're waiting on the "new" lenses. Set #3. :sigh:
