I’ve worn glasses since I was in third grade. I don’t know what the definition of legally blind is, but without my glasses, I have a feeling I’d fall into that group. If I’m awake, I’m wearing my glasses. Now that I’m older and wiser, I have progressive lenses that allow me to read and see things close up. Every year I go to my optometrist for an exam to see if I need to change my prescription. When I was younger, my eyes changed quite a bit and my strong prescription translated into expensive lenses. Luckily my eyes are pretty stable now, but I used to wish for a pair of glasses that could be adjusted like a camera or pair of binoculars. Adlens glasses have that ability! The glasses feature a dial on each temple that instantly adjusts each lens for near, intermediate and distance vision. Each lens has two wave-shaped plates which slide across one another as you turn the dials to change the power of the lens from -6 to +3 diopter. The Adlens glasses are available in a variety of frame colors and are priced very reasonably at $29.99. The only caveat is that they won’t work if you have an astigmatism. Adlens also offer sunglasses and glasses for digital eye strain. For more info visit adlens.com
