optometrist appointment

Today I had an optometrists appointment. Its been two years since my last visit and my eyes have gone down hill.
I cannot see street signs until I am almost past them, and at night its considerably worse.
So it was no surprise that I need glasses to drive with. I also needed to change the script in my reading glasses. So a new script for my glasses, plus another pair for driving, plus one pair of perscription sunglasses and the bill came to over $900.00. I was gobsmacked. I rang hubby and told him and he said just get them as its cheaper than burying me. So I did and now wait for a week to get them. Thank goodness its only once every two years I have to go. I have been assured by the nice lady at the counter that my glasses for driving will not need to be changed for about 4 years although my reading glasses will probably get worse every time. Its part of getting older, thanks!
so its a good thing that I dont buy designer clothes, or smoke or party hard. I couldnt affort to do all that and get new glasses.
I will post pics with my new eyes when I get them. You will have to be honest and tell me how I look.
see ya

I get reading glasses from the dollar store when I go to St. Louis. And they are only $1. I can not keep hold of them. So I get as many as I can find. I asked my Mom to look and send me some. But now that I need 3+ to read they are harder to find. I do not ware ant to see. But Night vision is not good. I can not see good with out light.

Yes they are not a cheap item to buy and getting older is getting costly :0( You will be able to see so much better...well I could.
