Carson Magnifier

With my low vision, magnifiers are definitely one of those things I can never have too many of. I prefer small ones I can easily put in my pocket and take wherever I go whether it be in the house or out and about. I’ve used little cheap blue ones that Molly got me for years but over time I’ve lost some of them. I had 5 at one point but I can think of at least two times that one wound up laying in the woods while geocaching.

Bausch & Lomb Magnifier

The thing about being visually impaired like I am is magnifying glasses are one thing you can’t have too many of. I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try for a reasonable price. Sure I know they’re not the best quality but for my use that really isn’t all that important. I use them all the time and wind up loosing them or breaking them anyways. One day while searching Amazon I came across the Bausch & Lomb Coddington Magnifier.

Donegan Magnifier

Magnifying glasses are for sure one of those items I cannot have enough of. I like little fold able ones I can keep in my pocket and have handy where ever I may be whether it be to look at my gps while geocaching or read a menu when we’re out to eat. While searching on amazon I came across the Donegan V341-T Triple Folding Pocket Magnifier. These had great magnification and size and were just what I was looking for.

Die CAPTCHA Inventor DIE!

Die CAPTCHA inventer DIE! I absolutely hate captchas. It’s nice that sites try to block spammers and all but passing the responsibility on to the user in such a difficult manor isn’t the best approach. For example today I needed to enter one just to enter my google account. No problem except for the fact that the damn thing was even less legible than my hand writing. They also have an audio option.

I Want To See Again

Today I’ve been thinking that I might be willing to give a cornea transplant another shot if the opportunity ever comes up. I have had a couple and both rejected. I have no idea where this is coming from but it’s on my mind today. The most recent one was fine one day and I woke up the next morning everything was very blurry. Before that things were great. I was noticing things every day that I had never seen before.
