I now have to wear glasses to see - progressives at that. They've saved me on several occassions - twigs hitting my face in the woods, brass ejected at the range and more. 15 years ago (before wearing glasses) I had a tiny piece of pine bark (perfectly curved) land on my right eye. It happened on the weekend so I had to go to the ER for removal, numbing, etc. Never again!
Here's a suggestion for those who just have to use reading glasses. My neighbor only needs glasses to read. He had 20/20 make him a set of progressive bifocals with the reading Rx on the bottom and straight non-Rx for the rest of the lens. He has his reading specs when needed and full-time eye protection all the time. If I didn't need correction near and far, I'd do what he did.
