    I’m going with 1 diopter (1 meter). This doctor seems legit from reviews and word of mouth so..... Also Weld dr agrees, so gotta may be right on, right?

    I got my first glasses when I was 7; those huge black frame things they issue soldiers and their dependents in the Army. Ugggggllllyyyyyyy!!! Coke bottle lenses so heavy they made you want chin crutches.

    So soon I’ll have 20/20 distance and a need for close in, reading glasses.

    Anyone got any recommendations on what lens technology to get? Is one material or coating or whatever better for looking through when welding?

    I’ve been welding with glasses with all the anti-glare, scratch resistance, etc. for years and it works but I never tried to find out if there was a better way to go.

    Maybe just cheater lenses will work. Won’t know till after surgery.

    I tried to contact that Tom Waters optical on the web but I can’t get them on the phone or e-mail.

    Y’all’s thought will be appreciated!
    I have my optometrist spec my safety glasses with the bifocal (bottom) extra high for welding at the bench (GTAW) and the top half is an intermediate distance (arms length) for stick welding elsewhere.
    Works great.

    Thanks for bringing that option up! Gonna have to think about that more now. I’ve worn single vision distance for several years. Just got tired of bi-focals. I’ll have to talk to him about how far is distance in this context. If distance is from 2 feet to infinity I’ll probably have to opt for reading glasses. Would be nice to have close for welding and reading but I spend more time out of the hood than in it.

    Good luck on the surgery i just had it done my doc did my vision so i can see up close and i can tell you how happy i am. Going in in the next week for glasses i went for close up because of what i do at work. just make sure you have a long conversation with your doctor before you make your final option on up close or distance.
