    LOL They do say people who work on computers and such do end up with vision issues from staring at a screeen! Blame it on that! Not age! Its just a number!

    I feel your pain. All my life I had 20/20 and then age, computer, etc. happened. I can't can't read anything on paper nearly without reading glasses. Ok, I can but it's very hard. The only part I don't like of reading glasses is it's off on, off on, off on and I refuse to wear one of those granny chains.

    Lucky you went that long without needing them! I got my first pair of glasses when I was 8 years old, I am 25 now and I seriously would not be able to function without my glasses or contacts My parents blessed me with early gray hair and terrible eyes, thanks guys!

    I had to get glasses after nursing school and it has gone down hill. Before I just needed them for long distances but I quit wearing them. But now I can't see at night, mostly the lines. The dang lines fade fn the winter fade from the chemicals. I drove home the other night and my husband said it was like driving with a 90 year old grandma!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    I think I got my first pair of glasses in the 80's. They were just for reading and I never wore them, it was the 80's... who read!?!?! LOL

    I went from needing them for reading to needing them for everything BUT reading. My son and his fiance got me lasik surgery for Christmas this year. Now I can see great far away but need glasses for reading again.

    I've been wearing glasses since I was ten years old. Tried contacts as an adult but could never get one contact to stay in place despite replacing it again and again. So I had to let vanity go because I just wanna see. Seems the older I get my vision deteriorates faster and now my memory is too! Guess I'll just have to get over my pity party...

    Just last year I went from having a drawer full of fun, colorful reading glasses to TRIFOCALS. Ugh.

    So see? It can allllllllways be worse.

    I'll tell you what tho...the best investment I ever made was getting a pair that was just for the computer - so just the middle part only of the trifocal configuration. They have been a dream come true. I see without tilting my head all over the place....!
