Seeing things more clearly (literally)

20 03 2010

Today, I am discovering that the best way to get used to my new glasses prescription – in particular, the middle-distance focal length of my new progressive lenses – is to play a lot of video games. Win!

And it took me a while to get used to reading with my new glasses on, until I realized that the trick was to hold the book (or iPhone) farther away than I was used to. When I finally figured it out, my first thought was, “You’re kidding. People read from that far away?”

And it was a revelation when I got off the subway today, exited from Broadview station, and looked off in the distance. Whoa. Depth perception.
