I don't wear prescription glasses.  I do not want to know what I can not see!

 I've been wearing Berkley sunglasses with cheaters for years. Get at Wal-Mart in the fishing department. I keep buying clear safety glasses with cheaters and scratching them up way to quick. Cant keep enough of them. 2.25 is hard to find.

Seeing the same,  ;D  It's just I keep mine on all the time. Get up in the morning,shut the alarm off and reach for my glasses and put them on. I always know where they are. No more putting them away,or looking over the top of them to see across the room or trying to remember where I put them down.
Get the progressive lenses and all will be good. I'm not a rich man,but my aggravation is worth something to me.  ;D

It doesn't happen with glasses around here.

With me, it's pens and pencils. Some hide in strange places, most of them I manage to redistribute among the various places I visit. Last month I visited an industrial outfit I hadn't shopped at before. The clerk handed me a pen to write down some information and when I finished I carefully handed it back to her. "Keep it," she told me, "it's got our phone number on it." I told her that I wouldn't have it for long because of my redistribution habit. With that she grinned and gave me a handful. Wouldn't you know, a month later and I still have all of them ::).

However, the pens are a small thing. With a couple of grandkids over to the house every week, the one thing guaranteed to show up (in the strangest places) is socks :D. We don't even worry about getting them back right away. Every month or so we'll hand a bagful to my daughter and she'll take them home to match up with the strays.

I have mental checklist before walking out the back door:  billfold, keys, pocket knife, sharpie pen, ink pen that writes, cell phone with ringer volume turned up.  At least half the time I have to walk back to the house to get my shop keys or my Wife will yell out the the door that my phone is in the house and ringing (usually from a guy named Joe about 4 times a day).  so much for my mental capability.   ;D

I landed on a YouTube link and watched it for a while (30 or 40 minutes).  This guy gives seminars on how you can get rid of glasses by fixing your vision all by yourself (with the help of his detailed guide ;) ).  He talk made a lot of sense.  Your vision changes because the shape of your eyeball changes (more football shaped and you need correction).  His claim is your eyeball is very flexible and is pulled by your eye muscles.  Like any muscles, if you don't stretch them, they will get stiff.  These stiff muscles will hold one side of your eyeball while the other side is trying to point it somewhere.  This deforms your eyeballs.  He devised an exercise program to loosen up the muscles and that lets your eyeball go back to normal shape.  He had testimonials like crazy.  Of course, eye professionals don't like that idea!

Any chance you remember the name of the video?

No I don't.  If you google or search in YouTube, dozens pop up.  WebMD says it doesn't work but the comments on YouTube says it does for those people.  Doesn't cost anything so might as well try it!

Correct Ray.  I have been wearing these for a few months and I am very satisfied with them.  So much so that I ordered a couple of extra pair.  They have a 1.50 bifocal.

I found bi-focal safety glasses at the WoodCraft store. The salesman told me chics dig em......

He lied.

MM,
I've got the same granite counter tops in my kitchen.

I've only got 1 pair (vari-focal) so they (pretty much) don't leave my head but I have been known to loose them.

With our old Sony TV, we ended up with 3 (large) remotes for it.  And they never left the TV room.  Guess how many times we couldn't fine ONE!  They used to gather under the couch.

Now, with the new TV, only one remote.  I keep telling my son to put it on the coffee table and you will know where it is.  Does he? NOPE.  He would rather spend 5 or 10 minutes searching for it every time he wants to watch TV.  At least he is getting exercise!
Same deal with the remotes. It was always down stairs when it was suppose to be upstairs. I put a shoe string on it and hooked it to the coffee table. Never went missing again. Redneck fix.

Ah ha, I caught them again.  5 pair gathered up this time.   :o
 

 
I know that it is a glasses conspiracy because I heard them calling for more.  There is no way of knowing where they will be next time.   ???
