Time to get glasses?

Just got my first eye prescription for mild farsightedness. The optometrist said my eyes could still focus on things fine so I didn't need glasses, but if I noticed eyestrain or headaches, then I could fix those problems with glasses. I don't notice eyestrain and only get headaches when I'm low on coffee. Is there any reason to go ahead and get glasses? Do glasses accelerate or slow any futher eye degeneration? [more inside]

Help find SeeFold folding glasses.

Please help me find these folding glasses. I bought a pair of inexpensive plastic folding reading glasses by SeeFold, but I can't remember where and I can't find them (a drugstore or grocery store I think). They are perfect for my purposes, and I want to get some more. (I've tried other folding glasses and none were as good). A Google search generates various references that send me to www.seefold.com, but it doesn't exist. Anyone seen these glasses, or have ideas on how to search for them?

Buying glasses online

I'm thinking of buying my next pair of glasses online. Does anybody have any online glasses retailers they would recommend (or recommend against)? And is there any thing else I should know before buying glasses online? I live in the UK but have frequent visitors from the US who can easily carry a pair of glasses, so places that ship to either country would be fine.
