The optometrist checked my eyes and only found a slight correction in my right eye, which has been the case for several years. I do wear reading glasses and have for years, but now I can't even adjust to reading without them.
I remember when my husband turned 50. Every doctor he went to started every sentence with "At your age..." Although I appreciate that the doctor didn't use that phrase when she was explaining the age-related issues we have with vision transition, I know what she meant. I'm in my mid-40's (okay, almost late 40's) and don't feel like I should be dealing with age-related issues yet.
She has prescribed transition lenses which sound really old to me, but she feels they will help me go from reading to distance and distance to reading a lot better. I've also got anti-glare which I hope will allow me to drive at night.
Apparently, there is a learning curve to theses types of lenses, which is frightening to me. Other people seem to manage it, so I'll give it a shot. No matter how I feel about getting older, I'm not going to get any younger either. I may as well embrace it without squinting.
