February Donation Results

Donation Goal: $700
Donations Received: $746.00

Woohoo! 3dsmile

For the final time, all February donors have received a small amount of extra special access time as a way to celebrate.  From this point forward, when the donation goal is reached, ONE donor will receive six months of special access time on top of whatever they've already received.  (To help understand this, most donors were receiving a 1-month award for the celebration gift, so this is significantly larger.)

Thank you very much to everyone who donated.  We have to buy new eyeglasses for both Keeshaba and myself, and this will certainly help out.  (But at least my eye pressure numbers were normal... a concern, as glaucoma runs in my family...)

PS:  When I say "have to" buy new eyeglasses, I mean that both of us are currently wearing prescriptions sufficiently incorrect to significantly impact our vision.

Re: February Donation Results

I did not know about them... surprised that they are capable of handling my prescription (I have VERY poor eyesight...)

But how did you obtain all the necessary measurement numbers to pick the right frame size?  Okay, they describe how to get pupilary distance, but how do you figure out frame width, bridge width, etc.?

(And I'm not sure I'd want to try to figure out my own PD... I have nystagmus, which would make doing such a measurement without the right tools... "problematic".)

Thank you, though, for the info.  They may save me much money in the future.

Re: February Donation Results

PD, ask the eye doctor, if they dont already have it in your chart, i would be suprised. Just by asking the question they will know you are thinking of buying online.

The other measurements could be taken from your current glasses.

Is it my imagination or are RPG's coming back in style?

Re: February Donation Results

RPG?  What have rocket propelled grenades got to do with glasses? 

...

What?  You weren't talking about ordnance?  So you meant role-playing games?

...

What do you mean, no?  What the hell's an RPG, then???

PS:  Crusader: my eye dr. already knows they're not getting my business for glasses, because when I asked them if they had the kind of frames I want, they said no.  But getting the other measurements from your current glasses isn't as easy as it sounds.  For instance, "bridge width": where, exactly, is that measured from and to?  Top side of the bridge, or bottom?  It seems inconsequential, but the numbers involved are millimeters, and you could conceivably be off by 1 or 2 if you measure it the wrong way.  And 1 or 2 millimeters could be the difference between glasses that fit properly, and glasses that don't.
