I am an old, the proof being that I have a brand spanking new pair of reading glasses. I have never had lenses of any kind before. I am mystified by them. I am just borderline in terms of needing them at all — the idea is to reduce strain rather than to resolve acuity. The thing is that I feel a little strain using them, though in the opposite direction, if that makes sense. Not being able to look up from my work to stare out the window while formulating a thought is also driving me bonkers.

Tips? Pointers? Ack!

ETA for clarity: This is a "what are new glasses supposed to feel like?" post. Also an excuse to post this photo.
