It´s official: I´m getting old.
#1
Ok, I´ve had glasses since I was 18 because I was myopic (short-sighted). Lately I´ve noticed that my arms seem to be getting too short to read anything.
Turns out now I need reading glasses too! Great. What´s next? Felt slippers? Plaids for watching TV? Should I start stacking adhesive cream? When will nose hair trimmers be on sale?
Dodgy

I´m too young to get old!!! Angry

I'm trying to get the VA to pay for mine, waiting to hear back. Hearing test shows I need them, agreed with what my wife's been telling me Confused

Mike, we are the same age. I can still read at a normal distance but my low light reading abilities are shot. i used to be able to see (and read even) in dim light. Now I need good lighting conditions to read.

I remember getting glasses when I was 9. Time sure passes quickly. OK, who's the oldest here? I think we need a really cool senior citizen icon here Smile

Oddly enough, I was prescribed glasses for near-sightedness when I was 10 "for reading and watching TV." Well, when I wore them I noticed I couldn't see sh!t long distance for about an hour after reading or watching TV and wearing the glasses - so I just kept wearing them all the time. When I hit high school, I'd had enough of the glasses (too cool for them, I guess), and surprisingly, my eyes actually got better.

My eyes are kind of weird. Some days, I'm 20/20-ish... and others I'm 20/30, to 20/40 - depending on how much rest I get. I'm also slightly red-green color blind, which might explain why a good set of polarized sun-glasses seems to improve my vision as well.

"Age" for me comes in the form of achy joints and blown-out knees.
