They might have suggested "occupational glasses", but said they really aren't appropriate becaue my near sight doesn't warrant it.
Suggestion was to go back to normal lenses for long distance and buy a pair of cheap reading glasses for the few occasions I can't read super small print.
I've had a very large credit that I'm planning to spend on sunglasses. It really is the bright summer light that causes me the most problems.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I'd offer to buy a round with the pile of cash I got back, but those Maui Jim's are calling.
monovision is great - that's one eye is set for intermediate, the other for distance, and (as long as its not way different) the brain works it all out and you can see near and far nice and sharp. Its pretty peculiar, but it works. However, you can't get it in glasses (something to do with different magnification) but you can with contacts. Or, of course, laser surgery.
And if you're really keen on fixing it, these days you can get cataract surgery to replace your lens (inside the eye) so they're flexible again.
