I owe all of you an apology for using bold all the time. My old lady noticed me doing it and suggested (she's an md, a pediatrician) that I get an eye exam. I did at times wish that you'd use bold. I got a new eyeglass prescription and now can easily read non-bold text. I admit my obligation to not allow my physical condition to unduly irritate or potentially irritate other folk. So I will in the future use bold for emphasis only. Peace and happy new year, 5767.

I have to admit that sometimes (after reading the 50th post late at night) I wish that everyone would use bold, but have found that just increasing the browser's text size seems to work quite well.
Congratulations on getting glasses!

Shalom & L'Shanah Tovah 5767 to you also there saint satin stain.

Welcome to the BC!

I don't know what browser you are using, but I use FireFox and can increase the
page font by holding the shift key and rotating the mouse wheel.
That sure helps late at night, or when I've misplaced my specs.
The only easy day was yesterday.

Yes, I've noticed that updating your glasses prescription definitely helps! *visually challenged person speaking here :thumbsup: * Especially when you are trying to read what the professor is writing on the board in the classroom!!!

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

I've had to have regular eye tests for the last couple of years.... my father had glaucoma,
so did his 3 sisters......
so yes... regular eye tests are a must, even if you don't want them.
My normal sight is very good.... but i can't read a paper or small print without my glasses.
Hey!!!! glasses look good :thumbsup:
