Well I must of been blind, but now I see! I had lost my glasses over a year ago walking my brothers dog. And had been using the ol $10 reading glasses you buy at the drug store. Do you know what you get when you buy $10 reading glasses? You get $3 reading glasses! I guess my eye's had gotten a little worse over the last three years, I went from a 1.25 to a 1.50 But I do see up close so much better.
