I have an appointment coming up next week with the retina specialist. Last time I saw him he said that I might need injections in my eyes, I hope not. I know that I need new glasses and waiting for this meeting before I make up my mind. Any new glasses on the horizon for you?

I got new glasses about six months ago. Sorry to say, I like my older pair better! My eyesight is quite good.

@marlina My father was 92 years old and his eyesight was almost perfect. He only needed reading glasses.

Hopefully it's only new glasses. I haven't had any appointments for my eyes in a long time.

My eye doctor appointment isn’t until October. We will see, pardon the pun, if I need stronger reading glasses or not. Good luck!

I hope you get new glasses and not the injections in your eyes. My friend had a AVC on her eye and she had to get the retina shots in order to keep her eyesight. Unfortunately it wasn't a succes the first set of injections and she had to repeat them. I thought and think that is such a hard spot to get injections!

@marlina By now you probably know the results. Hopefully you are now wearing a new pair of glasses and have nothing else to worry about.

I think I need bigger glasses to see my future after this mess I am in, kidding. I hope you got your new glasses and that's all no need for injection, I can't figure it out - are they going to literally inject something in your eyes? I don't wanna think about it... I hope you are fine without it. God bless and enjoy your day.

My friend also wears glasses, because he often plays on his cellphone or reads books up close. I'm really sorry if I'm being rude to ask this, but is there something wrong with your eyes that you have to wear glasses?

Hope u don't need injection. If I remember correctly the ayes are the only organ that actually don't have pain receptors. But everything else around it dose, that's way we feel those nagging aybrows small insects.. I'm pushing 40s and already have -3 at both ays, mostly cuz I ignored the issue for some years

You must be having macular degeneration. I have heard of those injections but not much success as reported by those who have had them.
