    :mad: I guess I am at the age where I can't get too close to do any detailing and I can't do detailing without getting close to the mount. What a pain in the ass, Reading glasses work all right, but I still have a hard time getting too close. I normally wear contacts, when I wear my normal glasses I have to take them off, put them on, I hate it.

    Thanks For letting me vent

  2. They have some lighted detail glasses for taxi work, WASCO has them I think. Take a look, might be what you need. ;) McKenzie has one called the opti-visor that is similar.

  4. I feel your pain. Pisses me off all day. Reading glasses are not the answer just gives me a headache. Eye doctor says all I need are reading glasses. Not in this business, I need to see. Thanks for the post I needed it. 44

    47 next month. Man, I am there. Let us know what you find.
     
  7. The optivisor is expensive but the best thing out there if you want to do real fine detail work. There are different lenses and I use the 2X only. Sucks to get old, Steve

    Optivisor is what I use even though I don't need them.I just like to see the detail close it works for me.

    I should try those things my dentist wears once. Those magnifying things that look like they are glued to the glasess. My wife is a dental assistant and might be able to get me a deal on them.

    Well, those optivisors arn't that expensive. I am going to have to get one, I like the light option it has also. I have been using my head light to get the inner noze and eye detail. Thanks for the input.

    Funny, in my head I don't feel old at all, just when I try to do things.

    Ya, I know we aren't old yet, but when these things start happening to everyday things, it is irritating.

  18. My optician talked me into the progressives and I can't even wear them hunting. I resort to my old style for sitting in a tree otherwise I get dizzy and sick to my stomach. And looking at fine detail gets me too. I have one of those dental lights with the round lighted lens and still find it to be a pain. I am going to look into the optivisor.

    I use the optivisor and love it. It really helps for the fine details and if it looks good looking thru the optivisor, then it looks even better when you look at it without them,LOL!!
