Well I wear bifocals in general I never used to wear them playing pool I just played and shot at the fuzzy balls. When I got glasses I had no idea they would make that much difference. I designed them myself for playing pool.
You can see how the ear pieces are angled and the extra padding on the nose so they sit high up on my nose. When I bend down over the shot the glasses are essentially perpendicular in front of my eyes so I'm not looking through the lens at an angle, but straight at the object ball. When I'm just standing around not shooting I can actually almost look underneath the lenses.
This was not very expensive at all. The frames are an old titanium set I had from a long time ago and a single vision lenses for like $40 to have installed.
It's not an original idea I've seen English snooker players use almost an identical frame setup.
For me it was all the difference in the world I could play again.
I was thinking about just having two glasses done, one with bifocals for general use, one standard for sharper table length focus, but the hassle of carrying around two glasses is a bit blah to me.
Laser eye surgery is something I keep thinking about, but have not talked about that with an eye doctor yet.
