It's Official -- I am old

I just picked up my first pair of bifocals (now called Progressives to make them more palatable to all the "I'm not old!!!" folks).

I feel your pain! My eyes went bad as soon as I turned 40--one pair of glasses for reading and one pair for distance...every year they get worse!

I hope I'll never have to wear bifocals. Although I've been wearing glasses since I was 11.

Came across this thread...I have had students teetering towards bifocals in their adolescence. If it makes you feel better, I have been wearing glasses since I have been 6 and half years old...almost 30 years. I am doomed for bifocals. Both my parents wear them now.

I spent a ton on progressives just so I can pretend I am wearing just regular glasses for nearly blind people, instead of nearly blind people who squint at the computer and hold the newspaper half a block away.
