portents

I'm old, part 2

So, as I pretty much expected, since my glasses were unbreakable they are not repairable. *facepalm*

I have a regular appointment for the end of the month. That should give me time to get used to wearing my last prescription before they give me a totally new one. And, since my current glasses are not being made anymore (part of the repair problem - omg! 2 years old! Ancient!) I will also undoubtedly have a new shaped lens with my varilux change in a new place altogether. (That's bifocals to you young whippersnappers, though in my case it's only one correction - I can see fine close up or to read print with my glasses off, but I no longer have the elasticity to get there through my distance correction. I still have a tendency to take my glasses off to read anything.)
