Re-Updating my Eyeglass Prescription Progression 2016

TODO: finish upgrading the blog software....been having problems with this one and have had to restore old databases. Alternative, continue looking at migration to another platform...

Meanwhile, I had an eye exam back on May 16, 2016....so about due for another one. But, that update should look like this.

In more recent news, while looking to use up my FSA dollars, since I wasn't going to have an FSA for 2017. I came across a site offering the option to generate full-time intermediate or readers from my prescription. Full-time intermediate being the suggested for computer work, which has been causing lots of problems when I'm wearing progressives. Finding I have to sit closer to the screen, which makes it hard to see all of its 23" or 27"....or straining to see all of it because the tiny spot that's intermediate distance is too small...

Well, the full-time intermediates I got have been great. Wondering if I should get full-time readers to help with my Kindle/iPad usage.... have until the end of April to use up the last tiny bit of my FSA rollover. (~$25.) Wonder if it's possible to get intermediate/readers lenses done? Perhaps as a bifocal.

The only downside, is I got it with a gradient tint...forgetting that it's too dark at the top for my need, probably should've gotten a light uniform tint. Though as I recall, it wasn't an option for the site I had ordered from, and trying another site didn't work as they didn't support the full-time intermediate option and generating the numbers myself couldn't be verified by an upload of my prescription...(wonder if I should ask for a formal prescription for intermediates next time....)

Updating my Eyeglass Prescription Progression

Guess I've been neglecting my blog in more ways than I thought...hadn't updated this progression since my post back in October 2013. But, have two recent prescriptions to add to the mix....one with my regular optometrist, and a second done as part of seeing a neuro-opthamologist at the Mayo Clinic as part of my ongoing quest to see if I have SCA, what it might be, and what its future holds for me....

But, anyways....

Felt like there should've been a Feb 2014 in there somewhere.....but I don't have access to all my files at the moment, something I'm going to want to do something about when I get home. But, nothing in my usual cloud places ....

But, wonder which is right and which should I get in glasses....well, actually, I had already ordered new glasses after the May eye exam. Had they been ready in about 7 days, I'd be wearing them right now. But, didn't get the call about them until yesterday. Wonder if I'd get new glasses with the latest prescription now....there is a Lenscrafters here.... or wait until I get home. The new prescription actually looks like its in the same ballpark as what I had been told....hadn't actually looked at my May prescription until just now as well...

Meanwhile...does the Spinocerebellar Ataxia quest continue...

But, first where should I go for supper tonight?


Well, I opted to not visit Lenscrafters at all, though I had several wonderful suppers at Chester's Kitchen & Bar, including once from 'Garden Patio Seating' (where I was kittycater-corner from Lenscrafters.) :wave:

When I inquired back home in Manhattan, it was explained that the prescription needed to be converted from positive scale to negative scale to compare to last month's prescription. After conversion, the difference was considered within the range of what would happen if I were to get tested every day.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
