Vintage eyes can’t stop me from pursuing a passion for genealogy, stemming from a real interest in family history, and nostalgia and wonder from discovering those long lost photos, family stories, etc.
Finding old correspondence between husbands and wives (i.e. David Coon, a civil war soldier and casualty) is eye-opening. Seeing such correspondence and knowing Valentines Day is just around the corner makes me realize just how important relationships have been through time. As much as things have changed since the civil war, we all still seek love and companionship.
I can’t imagine what it would be like if I couldn’t see (or at the very least focus) to examine the inscrutable, miniscule, unclear records one finds. I make a point of ensuring my best vision possible – especially since I have over-40 eyesight causing me to require bifocals. This is especially important since I’m a migraine sufferer and eyestrain is a well known trigger.
I have been checking out the zennioptical.com site and have tried to order new $6.95 prescription eyeglasses through them. My optometrist, however, was unable to locate my subscription and since it’s pretty old anyway, I intend to get in for an examination as soon as possible.
Once I do, I will be ordering new glasses – then I WILL get much more enjoyment from finding more amazing and interesting photos to look at and correspondence to read.
