Hi There..... Would you like to hear a stupid joke about eyeglasses?
No? Too bad, I am telling it anyway. It’s a joke my uncle told me a long time ago. 😉
A man goes to the ophthalmologist and says, Doctor, I think I need reading glasses. Yes, the doctor says, what seems to be the problem. The man says, I almost have to stretch my arms fully to read my book. The doctor says, come back again when your arms become too short. 😁
I know, it’s a stupid but still fun joke. Maybe not that fun for me anymore, because I have the same problem now. I read on Wikipedia that many extreme presbyopes complain their arms have become too short to hold reading material at a comfortable distance. 😦
They say that the first symptoms that you need reading eyeglasses start after the age of 40. What most people notice is difficulty reading the fine print, especially in low light conditions. They also have problems with eyestrain when reading for long periods, blurring of near objects, or temporarily blurred vision when changing the viewing distance. 😫
I have just passed 40, and it pains me to say that it’s true. Ok, maybe I passed 40 a tad longer than just, but that’s not the point at the moment. 😏
What would you say if I said that I discovered a great online eyeglasses shop where you can find a huge choice in all kinds of glasses? Ooh, you caught me on a lie. I haven’t found them. They found me. 😊
A few weeks ago EYEKEEPER reached out to me, asking if I would consider writing a blog for them. They offered me a pair of reading glasses from them to try out, and they also wanted me to try out their computer glasses with a blue light filter. Now how could I say no to that? 😎
