Was provided PRK in 2005 and have had wonderful 20/20 or better vision since...still, hit 45+ and suddenly had to hold books at arms length to read. I must read! Books are my drug of choice. So, I buy and maintain every type of reading glasses I can find cheaply. Did you know Teddy Roosevelt had 7 pairs on his person when he rode of San Juan Hill? It's true; he was nearly blind. Mostly, my issue is falling asleep and breaking off the right side so I keep every pair and piece in a box so that I can cannibalize to create a working pair. There is a pair in my vehicle, my bags, 3 in travel load out, night stand, a crude pair with an elastic band I designed just for fishing, sling pack, computer bag, briefcase, etc., and etc. You get the idea. I don't model them; they are for practical use.

Do you want to know what is inside all these books?
Insanity.

Sorry that my point may have not been clear. People tend to look for a panacea, an elixir, remedy, THE BEST ONE, which one can lean toward as the sole answer to every problem. Seldom is this the answer. A really good Swiss Army knife may be all that one needs for just just about anything -there are exceptions- but perhaps you should just save any and every version of glasses you wear. In a pinch, you'll find a way to use them.
