I was in Taiwan last year and I lost my precious prescription glasses traveling – OMG! So, I walked down the sidewalk and purchased a $5.00 pair of 1.5+ magnification reading glasses as a temporary solution from a friendly street vendor.
But, what I quickly realized is that these 1.5’s were actually better then my precious $500.00 prescription glasses. This realization has indeed changed my life. No longer am I constantly papering my once every two year prescription reading glasses. Being very careful not to scratch them. Having to remember where I put them all the time. These days, I dont care about my glasses anymore. I even abuse them, drop them, lose them… forget about them, leave them in the car – all the time now. I have glasses everywhere.
Its gets even better, now I buy $10.00 glasses in three packs from Amazon.com. In all different styles, colors and magnifications. One for the garage working on my bikes, another 2+ magnification for close up reading in bed, one to dress up, one pair to try and look cool. I am so happy.
What a joke I have been living thinking I needed ‘prescription’ glasses all these years. I am now free at last to see how I want to see.
