Back in 2008 I posted a photo of my eyeglasses prescription in this space, something that, the following year, stood me in good stead when I was away and needed to purchase a replacement pair of eyeglasses. In that spirit, here’s my latest prescription. If you compare to the four year old one you’ll see that I’ve moved into “progressive” lens, which I understand to be “bifocals without all the downsides.” And there are prisms and bumped up strength in one eye. In other words, it’s getting worse. But my optometrist assures me that, even if the trend continues, there’s no point at which my vision will tip beyond the ability to be corrected.
