Apologies for the previous rant!!
I recently had to go to the opticians as my eyes were causing me problems with close vision. They suggested varifocals which I duly ordered and started to wear. All was fine til I went out shopping in Hexham. Slightly unfamiliar territory sent my senses into overdrive when i was faced with some stairs. You see with the MS I'm never 100% sure where my feet are and tend to have to look down to make sure I know where I'm stepping. Consequently going downstairs caused a BIG problem. When I was looking down to see where my feet were, I was looking through the reading part of the specs meaning everything was blurred. Very dangerous for someone in my position, so I've had to resort to distance specs and a pair for reading and craft work.
But...I was so in love with the frames I had chosen I HAD to get them made into just distance specs and used a pair of frames I already had to use as reading glasses.
So these are my new specs. For those of you who know me, they're totally me, don't ya think?!
