Re: Another OT

I tried contacts many years ago and never could get them in.  No, wait, I
did get one in and the dr had to use a tweezer to get it out and grumbled
about how 6 yr olds could do it, why couldn't I?  I'm near sighted, so I
really only need the glasses to drive or see a movie, so why bother?  Over
time there have been changes and I decided to try trifocals for
close-computer-distance viewing.  But the teensy amount of space on a lens
for each was annoying.  Similar with bifocals.  So I am now back to plain
old glasses for distance.  But distance now includes TV.  Some fine print is
getting harder to read so I keep a magnifier handy, but otherwise, for the
time being glasses are fine.
