Okay, that might have been clickbait. Obviously, I can read but over the past month, I have noticed that I physically can’t read the words on a page anymore. I would love to be able to just walk into Target and pick up a pair of readers off the shelf but that isn’t possible for my prescription. I need a negative number and readers are essentially just magnifiers and don’t do squat for me. That means I need to dig out the insurance card, find out what providers are in the network, and make a freaking eye appointment. I need bifocals. I don’t really want to buy the expensive eyeglasses in the store like I’ve always done so I need to grow a backbone and say just give me the prescription, please. My husband had success ordering glasses online for work so I’m going to go the same route this time. I want to have multiple pairs of glasses, bifocals for work, a set pair of readers, and maybe a pair without the bifocals for distance while driving, while we are at it I might pick up a pair of prescription dark sunglasses.
In the meanwhile, I will continue with audiobooks and play my new game, Sims 4. Hopefully, I will have new glasses soon and be able to enjoy reading again.
