    I was born with pretty bad eyes. I got my first glasses at age 8, but I really needed them before KG. At some point an eye doctor informed me that I was legally blind if I didn’t wear glasses.

    Then several years ago, I got zapped. I am at about 20/25 now, which is awesome. I’ve been warned that reading glasses are around the corner, but I plan to resist that as long as I can. Let me enjoy my freedom for a while!

    I asked the question because my kid’s eyes have been on my mind. She has a pretty strong prescription and also has some eye muscle issues. We’re going in on Friday for an evaluation for vision therapy. In researching this, I couldn’t help wondering if half the people in my family wouldn’t have benefited from it. Not so much me as my brothers and sister with ambliopia / strabismus and my dad who is severely dyslexic. Even my mom, who can no longer read much for some reason that I cannot understand. I just couldn’t imagine being unable to read. I hope they can help my kid to keep up with her peers.

      I really hope everything with her eyes will turn out okay. It’s simply amazing what can be accomplished medically now. Keep us posted on this.

    Shitty. Excuse the language, but it’s so bad! I wouldn’t be able to read my computer screen right now without my contacts!

    I’m pretty near-sighted, so I wear contacts daily. Up until last year, when my eyes went completely haywire (thank you so much, age 40. Yet another “gift” you’ve given me), I could put them in and forget it… I could drive, read, whatever, without noticing a difference. Now, though, the contacts interfere with my ability to read for any amount of time, so if it’s more than just basic reading stuff, or if the print is too tiny, I have to wear “1 power” reading glasses. Fortunately, they’re about 7 bucks at Wal-mart…

    I have pretty good eyes. I’ll find out how good next week, my work offered free eye exams for everyone.

    I need reading glasses for some things but I’m mostly pretty good. I just buy the ones from the Dollar Store.

    I don’t think I have that great of vision. I wear contacts but the eye dr. said that it’s not that horrible that I could even go without…(I don’t think so!!) I have an astigmatism in 1 eye. I finally got new contacts about a month ago, took about 3 years to get new ones. Boy do they make a differece! I can see now!! heheh 😀

    I have had glasses since I was 16 due to being near-sighted. I have worn contacts since my late twenties but now I am having the Old Age problem where I can’t read with my contacts in. I can read just fine without my glasses. I am thinking of forgetting about the contacts and just go back to wearing glasses all the time!

    I should wear my glasses. Ive never needed glasses so it’s hard for me to get use to them. I wore them for a couple of weeks and that was it. Guess I should try again. It basicaly crisps things up and helps me read. Hmmm ;+)

    I’ve had glasses since jr high. I’m near sighted. I also got “old age syndrome” around 45 and it was bad enough to add the prescription to my glasses.

    Mines pretty crappy these days, I use those cheater glasses to read the fine print. I guess im getting what Joy called “old age syndrome” ugh! lol
