Benn there and got the tee shirt. They call that "modified monovision"
and it works just as you described.

The long time optician we worked with told us that at least one of the
big box firms locally came to him with difficult requirements -- they at
least knew what they couldn't do well. Given our high refraction
requirements, we really appreciate the extra care (and special sourcing)
our optician regularly did -- my glasses (more than -10) do not look
like coke bottles -- they look like 'normal' glasses, rimless even.

When the time comes for the next prescription -- I really hope the
optician who has taken over the practice has truly come up to speed
regarding special prescription needs -- I do NOT want to train him.

Yeah, I thought so. Thing is I probably do need to tell them at the DMV
when I renew my license next year. I made the mistake last time of
closing the eye that's weak on close focus and missed an entire line of
letters.

They asked about it, and I opened my eye and read it OK, but I had to
work at it.

Heh, my monitor is about 3 feet away from my chair.

But now I'm back to an 8 point font size, makes for more room on the
screen. 🙂

Michael,

DMV = Dept of Motor Vehicles.
Driver licenses in the US expire every few years and have to be
renewed.

In the US you have to get a new drivers' license every few years. 5
years, I think, here in Utah.

You don't have to retake your exam, just pass a quick vision check and
give the state some money.

I'd have thought that was proof of the opposite. 🙂

That she chose to be your wife and STILL IS means that you are special
(we take it as a given that she is special).

That would probably help. 🙂 Been feeling a little unwell the last
couple days, and consequently not sleeping well either.

Must be the glasses -- did you forget to specify the rose color tint to
the lens??
