Well, as happens with most entering their mid-40's, my near vision is going...quickly! I've been wearing contacts for far correction for decades, and the correction is not too bad, -2.25 left and -2.75 right. I ride my motorcycle almost daily, and enjoy using the contacts as I wear a full face helmet, and also to allow me to use available safety sunglasses in combination. (hot days in the southeast sometimes require me to ride with the shield up, thus the need for safety glasses with side shields) But, my close reading ability is degrading rapidly, so I am using some reading glasses at work with the contacts, but that doesn't work real well in the plane. I'd have to take them on/off, and then there is the juggle with sunglasses as well. I'm considering three options: 1.) Have bi-focals made for flying, having both the near and far correction, in photo gray for sunglasses use as well. Just don't wear the contacts on flying days. 2.) Have bi-focals made for flying, but made to work with the contacts. IE, no far correction, just near correction for reading charts, plates, etc., again in photo gray. 3.) There are supposedly bi-focal contacts available, but that doesn't seem so appealing. I know others have been down this road, and am looking for advice. Also, should I cross-post this to hangar talk to get more response?
