TruFocals Go Blurry

Well, I tried. After many months of enjoying, or trying to, my nifty little and very expensive TruFocals glasses I finally had to throw in the towel. The concept is sound but, for me, the execution lacks. Tragic incident number 1 was when my then 2 year-old-daughter pulled a book off the bathroom counter and knocked the glasses to a tile floor. One of the two magnetically attached lenses took the brunt of the impact and cracked. In addition, one of the fluid chambers burst and the transparent liquid that refracts incoming light for focusing leaked out. The second incident was my fault. The stems were slightly off so I attempted to adjust them by bending the frame. That threw the focusing off on the just-repaired lens. So, back to the shop. The final straw happened last week. I slid the focusing adjustment for reading and sproink the left lens went blurry. Busted.

So, I’m done experimenting. It’s back to my visually cumbersome progressive glasses for now. Maybe... LASIK?
