Subject: [obol] Re: eye glasses and optics
It took me a couple of weeks of using binoculars with glasses on (and no
eye relief on the binos), but now that I've gotten used to it, I find that
it's pretty comfortable and doesn't affect my ability to use the
binoculars. I use progressive lenses on my glasses.

Getting the glasses dirty has been a recurring theme for me anyways, since
I have to wear them while looking through my camera viewfinder. I now keep
a supply of Zeiss lens wipes (highly recommended) in my pockets, and that
takes care of the glasses getting dirty.

Good birding,
