Trufocals pt 2

I've been wearing them for five days now and the manual-focussing thing has become pretty much second nature.  There are really only about four modes I need to worry about - driving (focusing tab all the way to the left), slouched down working on the desktop computer (tab about 1/3 over), sitting upright working on the laptop (tab in the middle), and reading a book (tab about 2/3ds over).  Sliding the tab all the way to the left gives me perfect focus at a distance of about 4", but I've never needed this.  The mechanism was a little stiff at first but smoothed out in about two days.

The biggest feature of these glasses, however, is the lack of nausea that I was getting with my progressives.

Trufocals

I've been having problems with nausea ever since I got my bifocals a year and a half ago.  I was about to break down and get four pairs of glasses (night driving, day driving, short-reading, and mid-range for programming) when I found out about a new company called Trufocals that makes adjustable-focus eyeglasses that use a fluid lens to control the focus.  The front element can be popped out so you can swap out tinted and untinted lenses.  Placed my order a few days ago for the specs and both types of front lenses, and just got an email from them that the glasses will be shipping next week.  Hopefully they'll work as well as they promise.
