I’m officially old…

I had my first eye exam in 20 years. He gave me a (mild) prescription to counter my growing nearsightedness. Mom says I’m a freak, that I’m supposed to be getting more farsighted, not nearsighted. I think that its weird that calling my inability to see clearly at distances is “more” anything. I would think that the appropriate term would be unable to see far off… Anyway, he thinks that the glasses would help when watching movies (he doesn’t know me very well does he) or driving, especially at night. He also confirmed my fear that I should go and get glasses with really nice lenses like Zeiss or Pentax because the “cheap” ones would likely drive me crazy. Ah, the perils of being an optics snob… I’ve only found one optician in the area that sells Zeiss lenses and they’re in Reston town center and old town Alexandria, sounds expensive. The trouble is that I can’t figure out how to do this over the web, I need to see the frames on me. I’m not sure if I should get a regular set of glasses or just a pair of sun glasses. I won’t be driving in the near future and I need some sunglasses. I’ll have to look at the prices and see what makes sense.
