Im getting glasses

Thanks, I am getting regular glasses for nearsightedness. I have seen well without glasses for near distances, but my vision for ranged distance has progressively gotten worse. This will be my very first pair of glasses so I am still unfamiliar with the topic.

I am in the other camp. For years I was nearsighted and could barely see across the room without glasses or contact lenses. Suddenly around age 45 my distance vision improved dramatically, and the eye doctor ha d no idea why! Now I have to wear glasses to see anything close. . But they have to be prescription because the 2 eyes are very different and I have astigmatism (wavy eyeballs according to my brother). So I have a collection of cool "cheaters" in a rainbow of colors. In every room, my purse, toolbox, garden bucket and both cars. I get the first pair at the eye Dr to make sure the Rx is correct, then order online. Waiting for my appt in 2 weeks because this current Rx isn't working well.
As kids we hated wearing glasses and my Mom understood, so we were always allowed to choose frames we liked. (At one point, 5 of us had glasses and we were on a first name basis with everyone in the optical shop.)
Pick something fun.
PS I could not adjust to bifocals so I hed distance and near glasses.
