Forgot to say that I had an eye test at Specsavers and ordered new glasses this afternoon - fortunately nothing seems to be going wrong apart from the usual age changes, and I wouldn't have bought them for another few months if the frame of my current glasses didn't keep falling apart - on Friday one of the side pieces snapped off, and I've temporarily replaced it with one salvaged from a much older pair that doesn't match particularly well, while the the frame itself is held together with bits of paper clip and superglue. The oculist who did the test turned out to be a former student from my school, and was very interested in all of the changes that are happening.

It's worrying that (a) the cost of the glasses (varifocus lenses etc.) was slightly more than three of the microscopes I'm planning to buy for work, and that (b) they were still comparatively cheap compared to my previous optician. Suggests that I have been paying well over the odds for many years, and that Specsavers advertising is not entirely hype.
