Trying Something New

Tuesday was my annual visit to the optometrist. And we're going to try something new. One regular contact lense in my dominant eye and one bifocal lense in my other eye. Anything is worth a shot. I tried the bifocal lenses in both eyes last year and though I could see fairly well for my close-up work, I hated how much accuity I gave up on my distance vision. Doc says I really do need correction now for close-up, but I can still read the smallest lines without my glasses on. He says I am straining too much when I do this. And I believe him. After an extended reading session I cannot focus far away at all. Can I just go and get laser surgery like DH? Please?
