    I am having trouble reading small print, also glare from night driving is bothering me. I was shocked when I looked up my last visit to eye Dr 4 years ago. Made a appointment before work for today. Exam took about half hour. Was told I have normal middle age eyes. He said go to CVS and find reader glass that works for me. When was the last time you had a eye exam?

    Last February. I'll go again this coming February. Eye insurance was part of my retirement package. The exam is paid for and I get a break on prescription glasses which I need.

    Click that - to learn how - my eyesight improved in one way with age.

    In your 50's, NyBoy? I was unlucky one way, lucky another.

    I suppose nothing is all one way or another. Nothing. I often wear sunglasses while driving even on cloudy days. Night driving? Hate it!

    It also seems that my eyes take an extra long time adjusting when I leave the house and am expecting to see something beyond 12 yards.

    Peripheral ... I've been wondering about. Reading glasses don't correct astigmatism.

    I go every 6 months-glaucoma. Eye exam every year. Plastic lenses scratch so easy, need new ones and you have to have a current perscription.

    How can a piece of plastic be worth $200????
