My new safety glasses finally came in. Now all I have to do is get used to the bifocals and create my Awards entry in the next few days.

Pressure is on.

Sexy!!

Does the high contrast yellow help with improving hard to see pencil lines?

haven’t noticed
I was surprised that, on the way home, when I put them on the “grey road and sky” looked white instead of yellow.

Hi Debbie,
All you need is the fur hat, cahnge your picture to remind all of us to wear safety glasses, perhaps use Norm’s statement “and remember there is nothing more important than to wear these” (points to eyes) “your safety glasses”.

They look nice.

Lookin’ good.
I’ve tried yellow motorcycle goggles and they really seem to increase brightness in low light situations.

Cool specs Debbie. I might have to look into those in the very near future. I have noticed I reached the bifocal stage as well. I went to read a serial number on a machine and, after years of being completely blind without my glasses, I found myself blind with my specs on. Now I have to take off my glasses each time I check a cut line or view a ruler reading. It still freaks me out.

Good luck on the project….

I think I need “tri-focals” lol
I can see quite well at a distance so the top of the glasses is “normal”.
But, the close-up part didn’t help when using the bandsaw (the blade is too far away) but I can’t see it well through the top part either….......
darn.
They did work nicely for the scrollsaw though.

They look swell on you.

You’ll be glad you got bifocals, so you won’t have to be taking them off when you want to see distance.
You’ll get used to them in no time at all.

You may have to raise the height of your bandsaw, like I had to for better vision.

Nice Debbie. Don’t get discouraged. It takes a few days to get used to bifocals so be a little patient. If you don’t get used to them within a reasonable time bring them back because they’re not right!
