Maybe everyone else knows this. I didn’t and I think it is valuable information for woodworkers.
I just got a new pair of glasses. I wear progressive lenses. The top portion is for distance viewing and the bottom portion is for reading (12” – 18” inches). What I did not know is that there is a middle portion that is intended for computer use (20” – 30” inches).
Then I inquired about safety glasses and discovered that they can be very cheap. I also discovered that I could order safety glasses with the entire glass designed for computer use (20” – 30” inches). When I am in the workshop virtually everything I do is 20” – 30” from my eyes. I think these will be ideal for working in the shop. The lens cost $20 and the frame cost $23 for a total of $43 so if I break them it is not a big deal. My regular glasses cost more than $300.
This may be useful information for those who did not know this (like me).
