    Over the last 5 years my eyesight has gone really bad for seeing up close. I finally reached my end today and went for an eye exam.

    Seeing distance ~ 20/20
    Up close ~ 20/200
    Getting bifocals for reading, writing, and seeing the computer

    I was impressed with our new insurance, cost me $35.00. Ten for the exam, $25 for the lens, and insurance covered the $139 for the frames.

    Anybody else go blind after 40?

    Been blind since 5th grade, getting worse as I get older. My vision is about 20/400 or worse. I can see up real close without any glasses, but need reading glasses for the computer screen.

    When I was about 45 I tried to thread a needle after not having tried for several months. Suddenly it was almost impossible! I haven't had an eye exam, but DH and I started wearing reading glasses about the same time and have pairs all over the house.

    My dad says he's blind in one eye, and can't see out the other.
    He refuses to get glasses because he believes the myth that you'll become dependent on them and your eyesight will worsten because of them.

    Guess nobody told him that his eyes are getting worse ANYWAY, so why not see clearly in the meantime?? [​IMG]



    I'm only 23 and even though I'm nearsighted, I have already noticed that I really appreciate good lighting when I'm trying to work on that itty bitty up close stuff.
    [​IMG] I hope it doesn't get worse TOO fast!!!![​IMG]
