    Does Janis mean a third unnamed pair has joined the coffee table pair? If it was Friday we could cue Rod Sterling.

    This happens all the time I have a pair on my desk and a pair in a kitchen drawer to read mail and they get laid down and misplaced all the time.

    A pair in the kitchen,a pair in the TV room,a pair by the Computer,a pair on the bed table and a pair in the car. At least one is not where its supposed to be.

    I had been nearsighted and wearing glasses nearly every waking moment since third grade until I had cataract surgery at the age of 65. I got implants and became farsighted and tried using reading glasses, but like Arlo and Janis, I kept setting them down and forgetting where. I finally got a prescription for lenses I could wear all the time, just as before. Now if I could just keep track of my sunglasses.

    I keep a pair in each room and it’s amazng how often two or more end up in the same place. I think they’re in collusion with escaped socks from the dryer

    I’m near sighted and wear contacts. Years ago my eye doctor gave me two different prescriptions so that I could see to drive and still be able to read without arm extensions. The two different focal lengths gave me terrible headaches so now I’m corrected for distance vision and carry small (2 cm high) reading glasses that have a metal case which I always keep on my person. So I can’t relate.

    I have varilens glasses I wear all the time during the day. I have a pair of readers in the bedroom for reading in bed. They tend to stay where they belong.

    My wife is lucky, because her reading correction is the same for both eyes, so she can have a half dozen pairs scattered about. I spent $4k getting monovison LASIK and don’t need glasses indoors any more. I wear driving glasses to correct my right eye for distance.

    I use these amazing things called “bifocals.” I put them on in the AM, take them off before I go to bed. I always find them on the nightstand the next morning.

    They’ll have to put on their bifocals in order to find the reading glasses.

    I really don’t think it means there are two sets in the same place, just one set that isn’t in its usual place (could be anywhere)…

    My wife keeps four or five pair (at $12–15 per pair) lying around and redistributes them when several end up in the same place. I keep usable pieces of broken ones so I can Dr. Frankenstein together a pair out of parts.

    I bought many pairs of reading glasses so there has to be one in place when I need to wear them. They’re all over the house.

    Janis has to keep an eye on them, or they’ll breed and there will be little glasses everywhere.

    I watch friends & strangers that ’don’t’ wear glasses, the faces they make trying to see something is hilarious, {sometimes ugly}. My glasses go on my face before my feet hit the floor in the morn, last thing off when I turn out the lite at night. SAVES a whole bunch of looking, swearing, squinting, just a whole lot of shit. Get over it, you need glasses.

    We had almost the same conversation yesterday when I misplaced my reading glasses by my chair and had to go upstairs and get the pair out of my office. I also have a pair in my car.

    I’ve thought about using stations. Bedroom, bathroom, chair? I clip mine in the neckline of my shirt. Always there when I need them. I have about 6 cheapo reading glasses in my dresser drawer if if misplace a pair.

    And this is exactly why I bought bifocal readers, +1.75 readers on a clear no-prescription lens. I use them for everyday activities since my cataract surgery, and from the .com reading glass website, I think the cost $15 shipped.

    I have three pairs, just in case.

    I started wearing distance glasses in second grade. Went to hard contact lenses (only ones back then) and back to eyeglasses. My eyes change very little year to year and I have accumulated an assortment of eyeglasses. I currently have (all prescription glasses) -

    A pair with Progressive lenses which are my main glasses when outside the house.

    A pair with Progressive lenses which also change color in the sun.

    A pair of distance glasses – so I can watch TV lying down in bed.

    A pair of distance glasses in our car. (We were out, long before Covid, one night as I waited for husband to meet to go home I wiped off my glasses with my shirt- only to realize that I had a lens in one hand and the rest in the other hand – had I been there alone, I would not be able to get home without glasses.)

    A pair of prescription sunglasses – also kept in the car.

    My older pair of prescription near distance glasses – kept in kitchen and I tend to wear walking around the house – wearing them as on laptop in kitchen.

    My somewhat newer pair of prescription of near distance glasses (prescriptions vary slightly) which are kept in our home office at my computer in case I am not wearing the kitchen pair when I come to work in the office.

    A pair of prescription glasses in fairly small lens wire framed glasses – used as my first for 18th c reenacting and also for some 19th c reenacting – currently used when need them for some reason.

    Ditto in sunglasses which I keep in our van for use as sunglasses as well as if I forget to bring the sunglasses listed below with me when we go to a 18th century reenactment event (much more often than 19th century which is maybe a once a year).

    Actual reproduction 18th century spectacles with clear lenses.

    Actual reproduction 18th century spectacles with “color lenses” (sunglasses).

    And when I read – I do so without any glasses or spectacles.

    Hope my prescription does not change drastically.
