So glad there is an off-topic section here! So, as an aging designer, I am starting to encounter presbyopia (needing reading glasses) for small print. I already have messed up distance vision and have been wearing contacts for as long as I can remember.
So far my option has been to buy readers (I have several pairs at home, in car, at my desk), but it sucks; makes me feel and look old.
I am considering getting Progressives that have the upper part for distance with no magnification (clear part); so that I can see distance with my contact lenses and only magnification on the bottom part; if that makes sense. My plan is to wear the Progressive eyewear only during the daytime; mostly at work, M-F.
Does anyone currently wear progressive eyeglasses full-time to resolve their presbyopia but don't need them for distance (either you have perfect distance vision naturally or from Lasik OR you wear corrective contact lenses for distance)? What have your experiences been; positive and negative?
Please don't suggest readers (have them and hate them... and have to keep them on the tip of my nose and look up in order to see distance) or multifocal contacts (tried them twice; didn't work for me, no vision correction whatsoever).
Thank you in advance!
