stand distance. Last new glasses. my optician raised the top of the
bifocal higher than normal. As a result I don't have to crane my neck
to work on the computeror read music. My only question to him was
why he didn't do it earlier. He said he had never set a pair of lenses
up this way, so he wanted to try it.
