Maybe every line does not apply to you, but for many of you with moderate to advanced difficulty with near-focusing, the first sentence seems close, you feel like suddenly your visual world has many limitations. Maybe you feel like you are confined by your new glasses. Personally, I do not like my progressives in a house, at work, during sports. I only like them when they are sitting on a shelf. Perhaps I'm being a little harsh; when I was younger and only had mild near-focusing problems my progressives performed the way I needed them to.
