Glasses Update: When I brought back my new progressives to have them adjusted, I also brought along a music score to illustrate the problem, and an old pair of frames in case I decided to go with old-fashioned bifocals. The result?
$235 for new glasses with progressive frames.
$80 to have FT-35 lenses put in my old frames.
$?? when I decide to replace the progressive lenses with regular distance lenses.
Bottom line: I could have spent only $80. But I love the new frames, and I absolutely adore the people who work at Optical 88, 116 Mott Street. They didn’t try to talk me into anything, by the way. I wanted those new frames, and it was all my friends told me to try the progressives. This place was a steal, and the people were wonderful.
This is walking down Broadway, always a mixed-bag for me. I love how over the top it is and I enjoy looking around, but I’m a terror on the sidewalk.
People simply will not progress down the sidewalk the way I would like to them to.
A line. I just remembered I wanted to a series of photographs of people on lines. This was a really incredible one. Long and un-moving.
