Broken Glasses

I've been getting due for a new pair of glasses soon, but because I don't spend as much time in the Bay Area as I used to do, it's harder to book an appointment with my optometrist down there. I already have two medical appointments booked (same day, afternoon, to minimize impact on my 6-to-3 job hours) next week. Thus yesterday, when the right temple piece of my glasses broke, it was a minor crisis. I am very grateful that Lisa has managed to bodge together a fix with tape and wire (and I can't fold my glasses anymore because of it) that will keep me going for a while, but now I really need to bite the bullet and decide whether I need to go to a local optometrist instead of the one I've been seeing for many years in the Bay Area. As much as I like Dr. Rita Fong, I suspect that I'm going to have to go local, particularly inasmuch as there is an optometrist that accepts my vision care insurance within walking distance of my house in Fernley.
