I had Lasik surgery on my eyes in 2006 and was very happy to be able to go without glasses. Especially since I had worn them (or contacts) full time since I was eight years old. Starting about two years ago, I began to have to struggle to read smaller text and figured it was just because I was getting older and needing reading glasses. I’ve been using magnifying glasses off and on as needed and found the last few months that they don’t seem to help as much as they used to.
I finally broke down and had a vision exam yesterday. The ‘good news’ is that my vision is still 20/20. The ‘bad news’ is that my astigmatism has come back and my up close vision is blurry from that. I ended up ordering some bifocals for computer/reading and will be using them. They will hopefully reduce the eye strain I am experiencing at work. And – no need for glasses for driving, running, distance work, etc.
