    Does anyone know if there's a place where I could by over-the-counter bifocal glasses that are about 2.00 on the top and 3.50 on the bottom?

      Woodburner, Thanks for responding.
      I've searched Amazon without much success. Do you remember what you searched for ? We're they similar to my description?

                I need readers when I wear my contacts...don't need them when I don't. I recently picked up these at Cabelas:

                I bought them for fly fishing, but they work very well for carving as well! I got the 2.25X model...I couldn't go wrong for $10.00.

                  Just an update. I received the glasses I referred to above from Amazon. They are progressive lenses. I can watch a YouTube video or have a book open and do close up work on the carving without changing my glasses. Two pair for $16.00. They were just what I was looking for and work great ( takes little while to get used to them.) I think they'll work for what I needed.

                    Thanks for all the info. I just had my second cataract surgery a couple weeks ago, and have not received my new glasses yet. I can see great to drive without glasses, but need them to read. My wife suggested I try a pair of her cheapo reading glasses (2.25, I think she said) and they work great! I can once again read while I wait for my new glasses to be finished.

                      Claude, I had both of my eyes "refurbished" and have about eight pairs of 2.50s around the house in every conceivable place...then they seem to end up in bunches as I tend to walk around with a pair perched on the end of my nose and take them off and lay them down. I also have a folding pair in a case that I keep in my car for emergency use.

                      Doc said I just needed "dime store" readers. I think that term dated us both, him for using it and me for understanding him!

                        LOL - I'm well acquainted with the term "dime store". We had the 5&10 cent store in the small town where I grew up. My new glasses on order are the kind I don't have to take off - Progressive curvature lenses, UV protected, Photo-Grey, etc. Cost a bunch, but they work for me. Have had this kind for last 40 years, and don't want to be without...

                          Cataract surgery is my next dance with the doctors. I have put it off about as long I can. I have a few things I need to finish in the shop before I am side lined for a few weeks.

                            Randy, the laser surgery is really just an inconvenience, and well worth the trouble. Go for it!

                              My brother had to get his eyes "done." His response was: "I have not been able to see like this since I was 15."
