Optical Dude: So how’s your vision?
Me: I can’t see crap anymore.
Optical Dude: Yeah. You are about the age for that.
Me: Should I consider progressive lenses?
Optical Dude: Yeah. A lot of people like progressive lenses these days.
Me: Would I be better off with bifocals?
Optical Dude: Yeah. A lot of people prefer them.
Me: You know. My current glasses work fine and I can still read without glasses. Maybe I should just get a pair of glasses for staring at the computer.
Optical Dude: Yeah. That would work.
Me: Let’s go with that then.
Optical Dude: Yeah.
Me: I’m just getting glasses to stare at my computer, so let’s go for the geekiest frames we can find.
Frames Lady: These are pretty geeky. And these.
Me: I like these best. How much are they?
Frames Lady: $150. Your insurance covers $150, so they’d be free.
Me: And the others?
Frames Lady: $440.
Me: Let’s go with the free ones then. They don’t look cheap?
Frames Lady: Nah. They’re fine.
