My new glasses arrived, and they are not bifocals. Now I can see what I am doing again. I very rarely needed the near vision; it just got in my way constantly.
But again I had to choose between various non-flattering colors for the frames, and I ended up with one that is much too dark. In the past, I have painted frames with nail polish; it is hard to apply evenly because it dries so fast, but it wears well. So I am thinking of painting a pattern rather than a single color. The problem is to find the intersection between what I can paint, and what I actually would want to wear on my face all the time.
