I need bifocals. I’ve needed them for quite some time. I’m not happy about it at all. I don’t want the expense or the hassle. I’m nervous about how I’ll adjust (or not) to having a line in the middle of my lenses. I don’t think I’ll get what they call “progression” lenses due to the blurred effect they have in the peripheral areas. I need my peripheral vision – all of the help I can get. Did I mention that I have scarring in my eyes (especially one of my retinas)? Yep? Blank spots. So …no. They will not take my peripheral vision from me.
