There are places that will just put the lenses into frames you already own. They usually won't take responsibility for your frames though (so if they break while they have them you're shit outta luck and have to buy a new pair).

lol how are people doing their readings? in the dark? 4 hrs straight at a time? like some other posters said, dont let your eyes get fatigued by staring too closely or in dim lighting, and take small breaks every now and then

My roommate and I actually bought a professional conference table and built a light structure over it. I'm like 98.765% sure that lighting wasn't the problem haha

One guy I know never had to wear glasses until just recently. Seems to me staring at the casebook for hours on end might be causing this.


Mine got way worse. I think it's largely from staring at a laptop screen for so many hours each day. I never spent so much time looking at a laptop monitor before law school. I actually just got glasses late last year (and my vision was fine before that).

You get floaters because you are getting older, and are nearsighted. Natural process there... sorry. But, if it helps, I hate those too. You do get used to them though.
