I wear glasses. Which probably confuses some people who see my white cane first and my glasses second. Newsflash: not every cane user is fully blind. Actually, most visually impaired people have some form of sight whether it’s central, peripheral, or just light perception. It’s a gray area.
Anyway, I used to have progressive bifocals, but that wasn’t working for me. I spent too much time wondering if I was missing the sweet spot of the lens, or if I was just too sightless to see things. I decided to go back to traditional bifocals.
It’s a whole new world. Why didn’t I do this sooner? I’m more efficient with scanning things now. Whether you rock the white cane or not, if you struggle with the progressive lenses, consider going retro.
Let me know your preference. Do you wear glasses? Feel free to share your thoughts.
