Deadman followed his own advice and had a sight test last Monday. The results were mixed; his sight is deteriorating, however, he is delighted to report that he doesn't need a reading prescription so he's saved from the varifocals for another year, not bad for a man of his age. The optician says he has excellent accommodation, he must've seen Deadman Towers. Deadman's now browsing his collection for a new pair and meanwhile I found an optician's trial frame in his drawers, he keeps them full of interesting stuff.

Also beating a path to the optometrist recently was journalist Sarah Vine; Beauty Editor for The Times. In her article Specs Appeal dated 28th February she discusses reaching a milestone in life; that of needing to wear reading glasses. (I reached it at forty two and have been reminded of it regularly ever since by Deadman.) She kindly recommends Dead Men's Spex as a good place to find a cool pair.

In the meantime, we are waiting with bated breath to see which new pair Deadman chooses; I will keep you updated when he has decided!
