Yesterday was my annual eye exam. I mentioned that I’d been getting some eye strain when using the computer and when she pulled out an eye chart I’d never seen before in all my years of going to the eye doctor, I knew the jig was up: bifocals. Or, rather, computer glasses with progressive lenses which cost a small fortune. I think this makes me officially an Old.
Have a great weekend!
