    He’s not wearing progressive type lenses? They work better if they are good, if they have a good reading channel. You never see lined bifocals anymore.

    Impressive way of using your Principal’s glasses little girl.

    comicsssfan: I still use them. Lower, reading. Upper, general seeing. Remove: computer, bookshelves, music. Because of cataracts, my eyeballs can’t focus.

    The problem with cataracts is they grow and “ripen” and then have to be removed. Even at that, I still have to use progressive lenses.

    On his salary? He upgrades them when they break.

    Okay, so this brat gets in trouble. Punishment is doled out (or at least suggested). The brat says, “If only you could see things from my point of view, Mr. Spaetzle …” And Spaetzle offers the brat his bifocals. To teach the brat … what, exactly?

    First of all there is nothing that says anyone is in trouble.. thats just your imagination.
    Next its the principal’s point of view that is in question, nowhere is it even suggested that she said the words you put in her mouth. Why do you have to go so far away from the actual strip to find things to whine and complain about? Once more I ask why do you even read this strip ? No one wants to hear your silly points of imaginary debate.

    Please note this is America and you have the right to own opinions, I would not and have never said you can’t have them. Just why do you inflict them on the rest of us other than to be a complainer? Didn’t anyone ever tell you that no one likes a complainer?

    But they are way more expensive.

    What a perceptive comment on our attempts to communicate with others. Even if we put on their spectacles or walk in their shoes, we can never really grasp the complexities of their lives that shape who they are today. Just a serious thought….

    @Redkaycei Repoc

    Let’s back up a little, RR. Have you noted Mallett’s use of italics? Spaetzle is obviously (to everyone but you) replying to something the girl has said. Unlike you, I don’t pretend to know everything. I only wondered what led him to reply — and that IS what he is doing, replying — in the way he has here.

    Put away your ridiculous antagonism; re-read the strip; re-read my comment. And then you’ll see what I mean. Or not. Trust me, though. Every other reader, apart from you, will get it.

    rekam: Despite the problem of fixed focus requiring different lens for different distances, I rejoice that I had the surgery. With the cataracts, I was about three degrees from needing a dog, even with bottle-bottom lenses. For awhile, I even had the first time in my life with a driver’s license with no restrictions. Even though shingles damaged my left eye enough to be back with that restriction, my right works well without, even at distance.
