Hi,,everyone,,,not new here but been away awhile,,,have taken about a 3 year hiatus from tying,,personal reasons n such,,but trying to get back going again,,,in the last few years i have had to get bifocal lenses. has anyone had difficulty tying after they hav gotten the bifocals? i used to be able to tie for hours but now the old eyes bother me in half the time. I was curious if anyone else had issues? thanks B
