Glass-wearing cunts: any of you use varifocals? Had a long overdue eye test today. Basically, my distance vision is pretty solid but the close vision / reading thing has gone to shit in the last year. Where I particularly struggle is in meetings / presentations where I'm switching between papers and say a powerpoint at a distance and I'm constantly taking my current reading glasses on and off, and the optician recommended varifocals.
But I don't like the sound of the 'blurry bit' in the bottom corners which I'll apparently 'get used to'. Any experience of this?

My distance vision still OK (but no longer perfect) but the key factor was that my close vision (for reading under the nose eg supermarket labels) now quite different from intermediate reading eg computer screen). Although I can still cope with just reading glasses I figured better get used to MFs now rather than waiting till they're essential with little time to adapt. Initial impressions are that long distance feels OK and reading under the nose much better - but the intermediate for computer screens now much harder even though that worked better with the old reading glasses. Also, feels a bit dizzy when I take themselves off. Any tips?

None of this really happened, did it Bobby? What drugs have they been giving you this afternoon?
