I’m 55 getting close to 56 and near sighted as I use single vision distance only glasses. I hate using them but I use them at sporting events, playing golf, movies, while driving, etc.
I do not use reading glasses. After my son got lasik 5-6 years ago, I went for a consultation. The good news, I was indeed a candidate. The bad, I would need reading glasses if I got it done. I chose to not trade one for the other. They did offer to do only one eye. One eye would be for reading, one for distance but I didn’t go that route either.
I still dont need readers but …. I do feel as if it’s getting a little harder so I’m thinking of doing another consultation. I’m not sure it’s a good idea going on 56.
I do use my transitions glasses on the course as well as golf dark prescription Oakleys. They work but I’d prefer (as anyone would) to not require prescription glasses. As a matter of note, I do have to remove my glasses or look under the lenses when I read.
My #’s are on the mild side and hadn’t really changed in 20+ years. That stated, I do find myself wearing them more than ever.
