Was that happiness immediately preceded by frantic searching for the missing two pieces? ;)

LOL!!! Almost! When taking inventory of the 12 large piece I needed to varnish I only 11 where where they should have been. The 12th was some where else. Found it but it was not not directly in front of me so it was a bit hard to locate, it was over 2 feet and back 8 feet The piece was about 16"x 39".

A tiny little thing, probably hidden by your bifocal line, huh?

Until 25 years ago I wore no glasses. The my arms got too short,and I got reading glasses. When they became insufficient, I graduated to graduated focus glasses. Optician said to try them (real hard, but I did) and if I couldn't get used to them in 10-14 days, he'd take them back. It was indeed hard, but within a week it "clicked" and they work fine for me. Only thing is that I have difficulty sighting down a board to see whether it is straight. It always seems a little off ...

Graduated focus? Would that also be know as Progressive? If so, you never used bi-focal? I have been tempted to go to a progressive lens and most all makers will let you trade them back in for bi-focals but with no price difference credit.

I got screwed for a couple hundred when the damned progressives didn't turn out to be in any way usable by me. 80% of the lens has no prescription, so I couldn't even see what was in my rear view mirrors (side or middle) without physically turning my head. Ditto stairs and slopes. It just sucked the big one. I've never minded the little bifocal line anyway.

Well my eye doctor wanted to put me in trifocals on the last visit....I see that as having to move my head a lot more than I do now. Thinking I would give the progressive a try. BUT from what I have heard, if you go straight to progressive you get used to them fast. Go to them fro a bi-focal and you have a harder time.

I have a different astigmatism in each eye. Progressive lenses left me half blind when I went to them because my prescription was no longer _there_. People who have only a focus problem might be able to use them, but active folks have a lot of trouble, as do all those with astigmatism. It's a "one size fits a few" kludge IMO.

I was fine "bare-eyed" until 45 or so. Then at first reading glasses etc. Never had bifocals. You have a week (more or less) of painfull adjustment, but if you persist and do NOT go back and forth to othger glasses, chances are the progresives will suddenly "click". Of course there is no sound, but it was indeed a very sudden change from awkward seeing to seeing perfectly.
As always, YMMV, but I have heard this from many people.

Yeah, people with focal problems ONLY seem to be able to adjust. I'm both far and nearsighted, plus dual astigmatism. I curse the day that office manager talked me into progressives, cursed her for about 10 days, then cursed the optometrist for not allowing me to pay the extra for bifocal reading glasses when the progressives were found to be shit. I almost took a sign down to stand in protest in front of that bastard's office over that one, I was so mad.

I have a bit of all that too. The worst is that I can't read things without the glasses

It was painful for (I think) about 6 days, then it vclicked, for me ...

Also, because of a first time very good experience, which generally has stood with many subsequent visits, I always go to a Lenscrafters for optician's stuff. I have also gone to Cornell ophthalmologists for checkups, and they confirmed the Lenscrafters' doctor's utterances. Some lLenscrafters locations have given me more satisfying results than others, so YMMV ...

Yes, progressive is another name. I just about got a headache at first, but as the guy said, it suddenly "clicked" and now I have been using them for years. I'm at least on my 3rd set.

I thought the look of a progressive set was a bit less 'ol' fogey, so I went for them. Never had actual bi-focals before so I became used to them almost immediately. A few times they made me stub my toes, but other than that, no prob...well...almost no prob. The improved look was certainly a big feature as chicks started hitting on me like crazy.... till I discovered I was just running into them.

The thing I like about them is you can get the location and width of the progression varied (within limits). I've increased the reading-strength area w/ each new set as I've gotten older (don't know how that keeps going along with it, but it seems to... :( )
