I've delayed this as long as I can. After pretty much a lifetime of being severely near-sighted, my vision has gone wonky. I've been having problems focusing for months, and the edges of pretty much everything are hazy which makes it difficult to read, sew, or do anything else detailed and close up. I've had a LOT of headaches and twitchy eyes from eye strain and, sometimes, I take my glasses off to thread a needle. The last time I got my eyes checked (last two times, actually) bifocals were mentioned but I was resistant. I don't think I have much choice now.
I really don't want them and it bugs me that I'm so... scared. I have never been bothered with the ever-increasing signs of getting older - the wrinkles, gray hairs, even birthdays. Ever. And it's always perplexed me how so many people - especially women - get all upset over turning 30 or 40 or OMG! a gray hair?!?!
But this sure-to-be-bifocal thing kinda freaks me out.
My eye appointment is today. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
