A few weeks ago, my daughter came to me and told me she thought she might need glasses. I’m not sure why that surprised me but it did. I started wearing glasses when I was three and wore them all the time until I was about 13. At that point, the doctor told me I wouldn’t need them any more. Like any teenager, I was thrilled not to have to wear glasses any longer and promptly stopped thinking about my eye health. I didn’t give it any more thought until later in life as an adult. I started noticing that I was having a problem seeing things that were far away. Seeing street signs while I was driving and watching television started being more difficult. After visiting an eye doctor, I started wearing glasses for driving and watching television.
