20/20 BLOGGING VISION….I’m back. My distance vision is a notch worse than last time, but my reading (and blogging) vision continues its age-defying perfection. Which, really, is a good thing since I spend a lot more time using my near vision than my distance vision.

Plus, it turns out that science has marched on in the past few years. My new lenses, I’m told, will come with an antireflective coating so miraculous that it practically repels dirt and smudges atomically. We’ll see.
