my new glasses

don't work as well.

They hurt my eyes and don't focus as well.

I thought this was maybe just a mental trick, walking back with them (oy, it took forever for my eyes to adjust back to the monitor!), but then I swapped back and forth between my old ones, and my old ones are just _focused_.

The new ones are a slight notch stronger, and apparently are correcting for a slight astigmatism. I don't know which of these two things is to blame.

Fucking hell.

And I was so looking forward to having them.

They do _wear_ nicely.

Will take them back this evening or Monday depending on if they're open when I stop by.
