I am near sighted and I have been wearing glasses or contact lenses for years. I am finding now, that I am getting older that when I have my glasses on, I need to remove them in order to read close up and if I have contacts on, I need reading glasses! Weird...

Yes, I am nearsighted. I have it since I studied in the high school. Because of the heavy study pressure, I became to have the nearsighted eyesight. It seems it's common to be nearsighted. My husband works in the IT field, however, his eyesight is perfect. It's not fair:) I think if children are allowed to have more outdoor activities and have less study pressure and homework, this situation will change. I love China

i've been nearsighted since i was in second year high school. at first my teacher moved me to the front of the class but i was too tall so my mom decided to have my eyes checked. my eyes are 500 grade on the right and 250 on the left.
