Well, I haven't been working on minis lately because I'm in the middle of getting contact lens. I had contacts in the late 1960s when I was in high school. They were the hard lenses that were absolutely painful, but vanity demanded that I wear them no matter that my eyes were always red and weepy. High school ended and so did the contacts.
I got them again in the 1980s, but since I have astigmatism, they were semi-hard and also painful. The worst part was the best the doctor said he could do was 20/50 vision. Not a choice for someone like me who likes to see and read. Another slam dunk into oblivion for them.
Now I'm trying soft lenses which are unbelievable. I barely know they are in my eyes - except that I can't see! I'm trying the plan that calls for one eye with far vision correction and one eye with near vision correction. The far vision correction is perfect, but I can't read or see with the near vision correction so far.
So until I can see - even if I have to have magnifiers with the contacts - I won't be doing minis. Fortunately, I can see enough to read if I concentrate really hard on the print. Not fun, but gets the books read and emails written.
