|Eye glasses - frame brand is Michael Kors|
Back in May of 2012, I had intra-occular lenses implanted onto my eyes. I was actually planning to just have laser correction of my eyes - but the doctor found cataract in my eyes - so she recommended that I just replace my eyes' lenses with artificial ones.
Getting the operation was the best thing that I ever did for myself. I wore glasses since I was seven - and I started wearing contact lenses when I was 18. So for most of my life - I needed either eye glasses or contact lenses to see clearly. I still am amazed when I wake up in the morning and I can see clearly without any help.
However - even with the operation, my vision is not perfect. I've actually reached that age - when I need correction for distance and for reading. The doctor said that this happens as you get older because the eyes could not focus on shorter distances. There are existing intra-occular lenses which can do both. Unfortunately - my eyes could not handle that - so I can only get those lenses that provides distance correction. The solution that my doctor recommended is for me to setup mono-vision. My right eye ( which is my dominant eye ) is configured to see long distances. My left eye is what I will use for reading. The human brain works wonderfully and it just knows which eye to use for what purpose.
This is almost perfect for most occasions. What I found out though is that it doesn't work well when I'm driving fast at night. I noticed that in my last visit to the US - I will miss exits because I couldn't see signs clearly. So when I got home - I went to my doctor and asked if I can actually have eyeglasses that I can use for driving. So the doctor gave me a prescription that I will be using as my "driving" eye glasses.
The eye glasses are pictured above. I was looking for Rayban-Wayfarer frames but they were not available in Baguio - so I settled for something that looks similar. The frames are from Michael Kors fitted with transition lenses ( the ones that go dark when bright sunlight hits it ).
