I wore contacts for about 30 yrs and then started with the bifocals. I could never see well with the bifocal lenses and finally just went with glasses. I have now had cataract surgery on one eye and am wearing a lens in the other eye until I have surgery on it in a few weeks.
I hated wearing glasses and could never see well up close unless I looked over the top of my glasses, even though they were progressive lenses.
Getting older is not for sissies!!
