Needing glasses

Needing glasses When I woke today it took me what seemed like forever to be able to see and read my texts on my phone, ever harder to write one. After a little time I was ok but it got me thinking, so while I was in town I got myself some reading glasses. Ok I guess I need to have a proper check-up really and I due to have one soon. The joys of getting older.

I sort of need far distance driving for night time. But I don't drive at night and I didn't want to pay the co-pay , glasses of like $100 so I'll wait until I actually need it. My optometrist didn't really recommend the glasses just yet either because it is very slightly, not a difference yet.

So maybe soon you will then again maybe not. You could go a few more years before you do need them.

@kevin1877uk And, I think it's because I don't drive at night so it's more weak at night. I hope to go a few years without needing glasses. My optometrist says my vision is at perfect just that slight far distance only but nothing to be concerned as of right now. I hope you get your proper check up soon!

My husband's sight is never the best in the mornings but comes better after a while. For him, it's to do with his diabetes.

Interesting. I've noticed it a few times, maybe it was because I had just woken, next month check-up appointment and go from there.

oh yes, it is hard. I am experiencing that also especially nowadays that I read a lot of ebooks. At night, it makes it harder for me to read and need to adjust the font
