I have started a new thread as I don't want to hijack Funkie Piano's thread.
Here in France I have been totally unable to convince either my ophthalmologist or my optician that my progressive lenses are pretty useless for the piano. I can't seem to get them to understand that I have difficulty in reading the music and that the combination of looking at the music and glancing down at the keyboard seems to just create fuzz. For all other activities my glasses work well. I have been met with blank stares when I have asked about glasses for musicians. Can anyone suggest
(in simple terms) what might work and what I should ask the optician to try to get? I tried explaining the distance between my eyes and the music and my eyes and the keyboard but no one seems able to say anything other than "You just need progressive lenses."
