    thank you all for the wb's

    the very BEST part of all this was that the surgery and all follow ups and tests were done free of charge by a local clinic that is famous for their skill AND their generosity.

    i was told the same thing, but i have always been light sensitive, sunglasses always have been a requirement on all but the cloudiest of days. made a mistake recently tho, used the yellow shooting glasses of a friend while at the range.... when i took them off it was like looking into a blizzard, bright white for a few minutes afterward.... not fun at all

    Both Jean and I use photochromic lenses, that automatically darken in sunlight.
    It works well for her...and for me too, of course.
    We get the darker of the two possibilities.

    You can't get polycarbonate photochromic lenses, so our glasses are not as absolutely fragment-protective as would otherwise be possible, but they seem good enough to use when shooting.
    Our optometrist has reassured us about this.

    Anyway, the point is that our sunglasses and our regular prescription glasses are the same. No need to carry two pairs. It's very convenient.
    (Jean's glasses are bifocals: uncorrected at the larger top, and corrected for reading at the bottom.)

    I wear trifocals, and my sunglasses and regular glasses are the same also.............I usually live in my sunglasses, due to light sensitivity...wear them until dusk.
