In a rare bout of vision insurance coverage this year, I had my eyes checked and my glasses prescription got oh so slightly stronger. I hooked up some new glasses and set about wearing them. It makes seeing easier, but the boundaries are narrower. My close vision is going soft. I have to take these new glasses off to see things close up and I can't see them as close as I used to. On the bright side, I can see things I would normally need to hold close to my face more clearly at arms length. Costs and benefits, I suppose.
