One of the smarter things I’ve done in the last year is to buy a special pair of glasses that I use just for working on a computer. They’re large, almost as large as those shown in this photo of James Garner from The Rockford Files. This is nice, because I barely see the rims while I’m working, and that’s a big win. I have another pair of “progressive lens” (bifocal) glasses I use for everything else, but my biggie glasses are specially tuned to give me perfect focus in the 18-36” range, which is perfect for programming. I debated for quite some time about whether it was worth buying two pairs of glasses, but now I wouldn’t live without them.
