Maybe my lenses aren't progressive
I've been thinking about it and I might have no line bifocals.

Once upon a time, long, long ago I had glasses made that were just for working at the computer terminal where I sat for 8 hrs. inputting library records for the Washington State Library. That 2nd pair of glasses saved my neck and back and prevented more than a few headaches.

The frame arms are a little too tight so I need to get them adjusted so they don't give me a headache. Being sick hasn't helped me get used to them either. It's hard to know whether my eyes are watering and strained from fatigue and my cold or the glasses. Sigh.

the last three times I have been to the eye doctor for a new prescription, I have asked for line-free lenses and they have told me, "you won't like them..."
How do I know if they won't even let me try? Can they read my mind?
Maybe they get a lot of people who don't like them at that office, I don't know, but then I hear of a lot of people who really do - like all of you here!
I think I need to find another doctor and try again.

Been meaning to update this thread. I've finally gotten pretty used to them now. It's taken a good 3-4 weeks of wearing them to adjust where I'm not always aware of them...they just are.

I occasionally find little annoyances when reading and at some point I may want to get reading glasses. I definitely need sunglasses as well.

Monidew..that's not right. I wonder if they just don't want to remake them if you find you don't like them? I would find someone new. You may end up agreeing with the original doctor, but at least you'll know. If you do make sure to give yourself lots of time to get used to them.
