Egrets Reading

Clear Vision

Today I had an eye appointment and it went better than I expected. Somehow I had convinced myself that I was going to need reading glasses or they’d want to give me bifocals and monovision for my contact lenses. It turns out that my eyes are already doing a bit of monovision…i.e. I can read small letters in a book with my right eye and see perfect long distance with the left one (only with the contact lenses in, of course!!!). Instead of correcting the change in the right eye for distance, they suggested leaving it so that I can continue to do well at short distances without reading glasses.
