For more than ten years I have worn the same pair of eye glasses.   There were changes in my prescription but they were minor and I was happy with the quality of my vision.  This year the doctor felt I really should update so in February I got new glasses.

It's more than two months now and I'm still very unhappy with them.  The distance part of the progressive lens works fine but I cannot clearly see the items on the grocery shelf or the computer screen with any part of the lenses.   I never wear my glasses for reading anyway so I don't know why I bother with the (expensive) progressive lenses.   The result is that I wear the new glasses when I'm leaving home but around the apartment I wear my old glasses.

The other issue I have is with the transitional lenses.   They told me they no longer make clip on sunglasses to match the frames so I agreed to the transitional lenses since I did not want to have an entirely separate pair of prescription sun glasses.   They're OK for outside but when I go inside they take a very long time to go clear again and I find that so very annoying.  Aside from seeing clearly I think people look stupid wearing dark glasses when they're inside.

So many hundreds of dollars later I have new glasses that I don't like.

This seems to happen to me a lot lately.  I buy something new and I'm disappointed in it and it is less functional than what I bought it to replace.

Or maybe I'm just old.
