Too Good To Be Left Unsaid

Out of the blue, the Cheeseburger asked me a question today.

"Do you wear contacts Heather?"

Hulloooo...Lady Looney spent a very vocal hour searching for contact solution for me last Thursday. You were there! "Yup, I do."

"Are they better than glasses?"

"Not for me. I can't see as well, but I don't like wearing glasses. I've been wearing contacts since I was 16."

"Oh. Do they make them with bifocals?"

"Nooo...I don't think they can do that."

"Oh. Do they make them so they turn dark in the sunlight? Like those glasses that turn dark...what are they called. Transition glasses?"


"No, I don't think they make them that way."

"Oh. Huh. Maybe I'll get me a pair. If they make them with bifocals."

Bifocals, yeah. Dad tried them but couldn't get the right correction. But I guess not for astigmatism. They said I would have to wear the gas permeable lenses and wear readers. Nope. Not gonna do that.

I kind of thought they could do it, but I wondered why? And yeah, when I think of contacts, I think of spinning on my eyeballs and I couldn't imagine having to blink like I had tourettes every time I needed my bifocals.

But Transition contacts?
