Thoughts While Driving

View DetailsI was driving home from a visit to Barnes and Noble and somehow got to thinking about eyeglasses and how views (no pun) on them had changed over the past forty years or so. Not how fashionable the frames were, the lenses themselves.

When I was a child, and even into my twenties, the popular thought was that when the yearly prescription was due for a tweaking, the optician didn’t correct the lenses to what the eye doctor had determined would be optimal for seeing. They were afraid that your eyes would be lazy and your eyesight would become poorer. My adolescence went by in a blur. Literally.

In any case, things have changed. I’m very glad the view is much sharper now, personally speaking.

If you have any used eyeglasses, consider donating them. Optical stores often have a bin where you can drop off your old glasses.

See you later!
