I can see clearly now. . .
my specs are on--to paraphrase that song from the 70's. They say that the eyes are the first thing to go. It's true. I've never "needed" glasses. I've only worn them periodically. I was horrified, after turning 50, to find that I could no longer read stuff I was used to reading on a regular basis. I bought some drug store reading glasses which were fine until I looked in the mirror. I realized that I looked like Miss Warren, my elementary school principal. I remember shuddering in fear whenever I saw her peering over the top of her glasses which sat on the end of her nose. I took corrective measures immediately and got myself some stylin' specs! These have progressive lenses which are clear on top, so I can keep them on if I need to. Now, I can read music and entertain my little darlings all day long! No longer can I blame my missed notes on poor eyesight!
