Can You Be My Eyes?

When I was younger, I never wore glasses. I’ve always had fantastic vision.

But something happened once I turned 42 years old.

Reading and seeing words on a page were becoming more difficult. I noticed that I needed to hold the printed page at a distance. I would take the paper and hold it in my hand, and then extend my arm as far as I could. This for some reason helped me see better.

Sarah, my wife, who has worn glasses her entire life recommended seeing an optometrist.

Once I saw the optometrist, they said I had a slight eye deficiency and would now need readers.

I keep a set of readers at work and one at home.

I never carry them with me.

So I have a tough time reading something outside of those 2 places.

One of the places that I struggle the most with, is reading menus at restaurants. The lighting is very poor and the print on the menus and receipts is very small. Many times I’ll turn to my son to read the numbers of the receipt to me.

Just last week Sarah taught me a little trick that I’d like to share with all of you.

Sarah will use her cell phone and place it in a photo setting.

Then she will point the cell phone at the receipt or anything that she is trying to read. She will then zoom in the photo to enlarge the image or words on the receipt, like a magnifier.

Brilliant!! Absolutely brilliant!

I now use my phone to help me read all the time.

Sharing is Caring!

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
