Oh boy. I'm going to the eye doctor just now because my left eye has been acting all sorts of weird lately.

We can be ocular defect buddies.

Ah, the beauty of terrible vision invariably leading to terrible posture.

One of us. One of us.

 

I reccomend getting a set of prescription sunglasses aswell as prescription glasses. It works better than those transitions lenses.

I recommend the transitions for two reasons:

1) Far cheaper than buying two sets of frames and two sets of lenses.

2) You don't have to worry about forgetting, losing, or even breaking the other pair of glasses.  Nothing like taking a road trip acorss country and realising you left your (expensive) prescription sunglasses at the truck stop 3 states back.  Or, forgetting you put your regular glasses in your front shirt pocket as you lean over a bridge to get a better look at the base jumpers.

Honestly, I enjoy my transitions.  They are far smoother and quicker than they old photo gray I grew up with that would take several minutes to go from clear to dark and back.

One diddy,

The moment you sit in a car, they don't work. Transies are dependant on UV, and lo and behold, nearly all cars these days have a UV filter in the windshield.

This is really odd. My left eye is messed up too, or at least worse off than my right eye. How many people like this are there in the world?

My right eye is -1.5 and my left is -3. Apparently that's weird according to my other friends that wear vision correcting devices (I was unaware of this until one of them tried on my glasses and about went cross-eyed).

My eyes are off the chart on their differences, I SWEAR they're from two different people. Left has near perfect vision, having some astigmatism while the other is over -6.00. Optometrist doesn't know why. D:

Oh you poor thing, Jam!

 

I don't remember the exact shade, but if you get some yellow-tinted lenses for work they should keep your vision from getting any worse than it already is. (assuming you already haven't). Your optometrist should know.

 

They won't be prescription, but I've heard very good things about Gunnar Glasses

(http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/miscellaneous/c411/) - I plan on ordering a pair for myself when we get back to the 'states.

Huh! That's interesting... but they can't be prescription...?

I went to the company site and Gunnars themselves do not do prescription lenses. Though they do make frames that are lare enough to wear over wire-frame glasses or that can take common prescription inserts, though they recommend using contacts. The prices are also a bit steep, after some research.

All About Vision did a pretty intensive study into what has been titled "Computer Vision Syndrome" (http://www.allaboutvision.com/cvs/computer_glasses.htm). My mother and sister both wear glasses (and my father is getting there. The future looks dim for me... hah), and according to my dad just wearing his amber-tinted anti-reflective coated night driving glasses has helped reduce eyestrain a lot for him when he has to spend all day in front of the computer.

PRIO (http://www.prio.com/) seems to have the most experience dealing with CVS (the eye problem, not the pharmacy chain), but they're U.S. based so I don't know how much that helps you.

After everythig I've seen it looks like there are two solid options. 1) Buy an off-the-rack pair of 'computer glasses' at an office supply store or from a similar vendor/dealer - 2) Talk to your optometrist about getting computer glasses for work.

Hope that helps, Jam.

It's not that bad xD really, you just end up getting used to them.

Also they have sex appeal and you can look cooler/smart xDD

Glasses are fun! I've had them for about 7 years now, and you don't really notice them after a while. Though you'll want to get contacts for your dirtbiking escapades :P

Aye seconded.

Hay Jam! How strong a perscription do you have? I'll tell you this right now, contacts are not nearly as precise as glasses.

I personally HAAAAATE and DESPISE contacts...

Maybe it has to do with the fact that I've had glasses for ever...literally...

Don't worry! It just means your inner eyes are hardening with age! (sometimes with dehydration in youth through alcohol) Otherwise, enjoy your new glasses!

Hint: Don't match them with your hair, try to match them with your skintone and personality, like prodesign denmark: these could be yours!http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3503/3259397833_f9f743d4c1.jpg OR:
