See that ugly mug up there? Notice anything different about him? I’ll give you a minute to think about it….
Can you tell he’s wearing glasses? Yep, I had to break down and get them. I’ve actually been blind as a bat since I was about 12 years old. Exactly ten years ago, I had Lasik surgery, and man, what a life changing experience. No more glasses! When I had the Lasik, I went into it with the attitude that if I could make do without glasses for a couple of years, I would be very happy. Well, I made it nearly 10 years before things in the distance started to get fuzzy again.
I figured that the new prescription was not so strong that I wouldn’t mind not wearing them when I ride, so I could use my cycling sunglasses. After a few rides, however, I decided that I liked the nice crisp vision the new glasses provided, so I’ve been riding with them instead of sunglasses.
The problem is, that there are times when sunglasses are just about necessary. Tonight was one of those evenings!
Actually, I decided last week while on vacation that I would go ahead and order a pair of prescription sunglasses. I went in yesterday and got them ordered, so I should be back to cycling in shades within a couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to that!
