I had an eye exam a couple weeks ago. It had been a couple years and my eyesight had gotten old since the last visit. My regular prescription for a tidge of near-sightedness was still the same, with one eye being worse than the other. My near vision has continued to degrade with age.
One of the things that had prompted me to get my eyes checked was my need for reading glasses for computer use. This is a fairly new phenomena for me, but it had been getting hard to read my computer for awhile - the ctrl/+ command was getting heavy use. I was only using cheap reading glasses though. They're fine for a bit of reading here and there, but an hour session gaming and my eyes felt like imploding.
So anyways, the point of this here thread is that I took my prescription and ordered a pair of perscription computer glasses from eyebuydirect. They were less than twenty bucks with shipping. I love them. They're perfect. My eye doc said the difference in vision between right and left eye was probably the biggest cause of eye strain from using drug store reading glasses. That's taken care of, but also these are made to my focal length and to fit my other measurements. They have thin glass lenses and are really lightweight. I'm so far impressed - specially when I think of the cost of my 'progressives' that I mostly only use for driving.
Anyone else order prescription glasses via the interwebs?
