Looking is seeing

Richard:  we're talking about going to the optician's.

Jackie:  Yeah, cos I've just been and spent rather a lot of money. We both wear glasses.

Richard: Yes

Jackie:  When did you start wearing yours?

Richard: I started wearing mine in my mid-thirties, I think.

Jackie:  Right and, and is that because you needed it... you needed them for reading?

Richard: Well, I can remember it specifically actually. It was, one day it was around dusk, the sun was going down and you know the light fades and I realised I couldn't read street signs, so then I decided to get my eyes tested and the optician said, yep, you need glasses. Not strong, but I just needed them.

Jackie:  So the glasses that you have now they're just normal single vision glasses, aren't they?

Richard: Single vision glasses, not very strong, minus one they are.

Jackie:  Oh right, for seeing things in the distance.           

Richard: Exactly, yes and for driving.

Jackie:  Right. They are reactions as well, aren't they?

Richard: They are, they go dark in sunlight so I use them as my sunglasses. They're great, just what I need.

Jackie:  I, unfortunately... well, the same as you, I was in my thirties when I realised I needed them for seeing things in the distance but now I also need them for reading as well.

Richard: You're a bit strange, Jackie, aren't you? Because both of your eyes are different as well as being short and long-sighted.

Jackie:  Yeah, one of them is really much better for seeing things in the distance and one... one of them for close up. Anyway, as a result I have to wear varifocals.

Richard: Which are much more expensive, aren't they?

Jackie:  Horrendously expensive. And I don't really like going to the opticians not only because I have to fork out a load of money but also, I have a very small head [Richard: Yes] so it's actually quite difficult, isn't it, to find frames that suit me.

Richard: Yes, I remember the last set of frames you had, weren't they supposed to be for children?

Jackie:  No [laughs] no, I think they were adults' ones but they were... I think the problem is that frames, like many things, have fashionable shapes and they don't always suit everyone.

Richard: Mmmm, round shapes or oval or square. Yes, so the optician has to be a scientist but they also have to help you with your um... fashion sense as well, I suppose.

Jackie:  And also I don't like it because you have this set price but then there's all these extras, extra decisions to make about whether you want anti-glare or anti-scratch and I always feel really bad that I'm not paying even more on top of everything to have the full package really.

Richard: Yes, I don't know why the designer glasses are so much more expensive.

Jackie:  The designer frames.

Richard: The designer frames. They seem to be made in exactly the same way as the cheaper ones.

Jackie:  So you wear glasses, Richard, aren't you tempted by contact lenses?

Richard: I did wear contact lenses rather than glasses because I was bothered by the glasses but the contact lenses didn't last very long.

Jackie:  Oh, what happened?

Richard: I went swimming.

Jackie:  Oh, with the contact lenses in?

Richard: And I forgot they were in, and I opened my eyes and they were gone.

Jackie:  Oh, so you're in the water and you can't see anything.

Richard: [laughs] Yes. And taking them out every night and washing them, that was more hassle than just wearing glasses so I've stuck to glasses since then.

Jackie:  You do go through quite a few pairs though, Richard.

Richard: Yes. I sit on them, I stand on them, I lose them.

Jackie:  You leave them on the bus.

Richard: I left them on the bus, yes.

Jackie:  Yes, yes, yes. Anyway, what about you the listeners? Do you wear glasses?

Richard: Do you like wearing glasses?

Jackie:  We'd love to hear from you.
