Clear Vision

For months now--yes I do mean several months!--my glasses have seemed cloudy to me. I kept thinking they just needed to be cleaned, but they would never really get better. My sweet husband kept telling me I needed to go get new ones. I knew it had been over two years since my last opthomologist appointment. ( I see my retinal surgeon every month for my macular degeneration, but he doesn't deal with eye glasses.). I knew if I took them in asking for new glasses they would want me to see the Dr. so I made an appointment.

My actual prescription didn't change much--they did improve it just very slightly.

When I went to order my glasses, she said the reason they were cloudy is because the anti-reflective coating was coming off. She said that can happen after 2 years, although she assured me the coating they now have is much better and more scratch resistant.

When I went to pick up my new glasses I couldn't believe the difference! I could actually see so much better, and the lenses were so clear. When I got home and started working on my computer I told my hubby, "Oh my goodness! My computer screen is so clear and bright--it's amazing!" He was very happy for me, but couldn't resist adding "I've been telling you to get those taken care of".

I couldn't help but think about that verse in I Corinthians 13:12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.

I'm very excited that my physical sight is so much clearer. And although we now can only get a glimpse of our Savior through descriptions in His Word, I know it will be so thrilling and wonderful when we are able to see our Lord and Savior face to face!

I don't have prescription glasses, but recently had to buy more simple reading glasses. The old ones had minute scratches from age. Makes life better, doesn't it Donna?

Hubby told me yesterday I need to get to an eye doctor because I can barely read anything without my drug store reading glasses! I'm just not ready for bifocals.

Good for you! (This motivates me to get mine taken care of.) You should listen to your husband more often!

Well hopefully by then, you'll have gone through a few more pairs of glasses! I seem to have to get new ones every other year.
I am glad to hear that you can see us now Donna! See I am waving hello to you ☺ !!!! Love Di ♥

Do we look better to you?

Thankfully it was the glasses that was causing your sight to be cloudy.
