Been a while since someone invited me down an ally.

Might take you up on it.

Doesn't Ortho-K require to wear hard contact lenses all night while you sleep?

Sure, you don't really have to worry about losing contact lenses while swimming and so on, but you still have to wear contact lenses every night and if you stop wearing them, your vision will revert to its previous level.

Get scripted goggles. Refractive surgery is a good thought but comes with it's risks and consequences...
Good advice - iSurg - I 'm not up with the research but I have lots of anecdotal tales of people who got the surgery and a few months later it all reverted. The complications/side effects are also massively undersold.

People should also wear sunnies more frequently.

fwiw I have 5 pairs on a current script, 4 bifocals and one set of readers only.
I don't use the readers-only much at all. I find the bifocals fine - I only really need specs for reading. I got bi-focals because I cant stand taking glasses on and off and or losing them or sitting on them. Also in meetings with just readers I would have to take off the glasses to see the people around the table. And put them back on to read papers etc. I have the readers with HUGE lenses so I can read fast. I like to scan very fast and big lenses save waving the head around. I only use a couple of different pairs of clip-ons for shades so I always have script behind them. I save old glasses for out in the shed and such.

And Firmin's suggesting about donating to Rotary is the thing to do - help someone easily.

Just make sure he doesn't lace your drink with an upper and make you buckle over. If you polish it, you might end up with a tear in the calf and feeling like a horse's arse. I hope you're not easily suede.

Surgically, any contact lens wear be it soft or hard lenses has a measurable effect on corneal curvature as evidenced by keratometry (Pentacam, orbscan, wavefront). This is why refractive surgeons will ask you to abstain from CL wear before surgery and before deciding how much to ablate. Regarding orthoK lenses, although they are presumably high oxygen permeability, I still think the cornea is hypoxic at night, so it wouldn't be something I would do personally.

Didn't get the herringbone email. Are the suits on sale? Was hoping to snap up the glen check in grey suit

As someone whose never liked wearing glasses, I've been in two minds about it.

OTOH, I have a family friend whose husband went blind from the procedure. On the other, I know of a lot of people who say it was the best thing they ever did.

Ciao Gianni, I like your coat, are those pagota shoulders?  Unfortunately, you are not very Australian. But this is not necessarily a bad thing. I suggest you watch 'They're a Weird Mob', starring Walter Chiari. You'll understand after that.

Thank you for your comment and for your kind words, really. I know I am very Australian =) ... what colors you normally use them? The shoulder of my dress is called shoulder saddled. Thanks again for everything.

On a scale of stylishness it is about a 10. Bravo.

Thank you very much for your kind reply. Agree with happiness for your answer. I want to understand more Australian style. What colors dominate in Australia? One day I want to come because I love it and so I have to be up =)
