Laurie, glad you got those glasses! Yes Progressives are pricey but I think they are worth it. I picked up two pair today, 'regular' and sunglasses. My first prescription sunglasses in decades! I am really going to like those. So tired of the 'over the glasses' ones that scratched up my old glasses. I always got glasses at Costco, except the last time after my surgery...having had a problem with them making a few mistakes and finally getting my money back, I decided to try elsewhere. I found the bill for those, 2 and a half years old, and they were $432 with insurance. We had that one year where we had insurance help with eyeglasses. No more.
Went back to Costco this time, and got both pair for just over $400. So I feel like I got a bargain, high as that is, considering what it would cost elsewhere, particularly without insurance!!! (I did get Progressives for the sunglasses as well, at first I wasn't going to, as I can read fairly well without them, til it dawned that while wearing the sunglasses I wouldn't be 'without' glasses, and I wouldn't be able to read...and there are times in the car for instance when reading is rather handy.)
I'm having a bit of trouble finding what they call the 'sweet spot' in the new glasses, for reading fine print. It's there, if I move my eyes/head, it's just different than the old pair, which had smaller lenses. I'll get it. Always takes a day or so.
I figure I pay enough money for fabric for quilting, and so on...may as well pay for glasses to be able to see it all!
Terri, poor Tucker, poor you! Glad everyone is OK. As to DM, I think Linda has it right, she's probably still adjusting to all the change, the new environment, the loss of some independence, and all of that. Hopefully things will settle.
