June 13th I went to my eye appointment. I have been having some problems reading small print. It's official I need reading glasses. I don't have to wear them all the time only for reading. I used to have 20/20. I guess it's part of getting older. My mom said she started needing glasses when she turned 40. So, I'm following in her footsteps. Who else needs glasses for reading and when did you start needing them? '

For reading I really should NOT be wearing my glasses because I suffer from near sightedness which means up close I can see but far away, it is fuzzy . . .

@MoonMaa if I am not mistaken this is something that is inherited through the gene pool BUT can be corrected with the proper eye exams

@MoonMaa I guess I need to anticipate the usage when reaching this age.

@Shavkat Just be on the lookout for it but you might don't need them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

For some reason, not me. Not sure why, but many in our family (including those over 60) don't need glasses.

I thought I was never going to need them either, but eventually it caught up with me.

Wow! That's great! I wish I didn't need them either. I was hoping that I wouldn't. I only need them for reading when the print is real small.

I wore glasses from the age of 2 years as had a squint. It was corrected by surgery when I was a child but my vision in one eye is not good. From the age of 14-45 I did not wear them as vanity took over but I have to wear them now I am in my 60s.

I started needing them when I was well past 50. Now I need glasses for everything!! TV, driving, reading. But I am used to them and got glasses that have progressive lenses so I don't have to change them for reading or for distance.
