Shortly after I turned 40 (the year the warranty ran out on my body), all needed when I got my first glasses were readers but I didn't want to horse around taking them on and off nor waste time looking for them so my doctor set me up with bifocals that a minimal correction in the main lens (so the insurance I had back then would pay for them) and the necessary correction in the lower lens. I just kept those glasses on my face all day long. Mayhap your ex could benefit from something like that.

For those on a budget. Great place online to buy prescription glasses. Hundreds of frame choices. Mine cost $8. I have 5 pairs scattered about so I can always find a pair. And I have a pair of prescription sunglasses

DW and I had the same procedure 6 years ago and have been very happy with it.

No glasses needed for reading OR distance. It took a little getting used to but the brain seems to adjust to almost anything.

Many years back, I worked with a Boeing training pilot who had double tri-focals. The bottom half of the lenses were tri-focals for looking at the main instrument panels in front of him and a bit down. The upper half were for looking up at the overhead instrument panel.

I could never understand why he still had a pilot's license, but he was one of the best instructors we had. The 747 used to talk to him somehow.

When I wore contacts, I had mono-vision. One lens for close-up and one for distant. Easy to get used to. I had my optometrist write me a script so when I was doing close up work, both eyes were the same focus.

A great place to get readers is at the 99 cent store.

If you have older glasses that have fine scratches, use some Pledge spray wax on them. You would be amazed how much it helps. I have some I use in the shop and at times, it's hard to tell the difference from my good glasses.

I am so blind that my glasses go on in the morning and off at night, keep them on the night stand. DH is always looking for his glasses. I am of the mind that have to be waring glasses to find glasses. So glad to see [ no pund intented] others have the same problem!!
