I know when you get old your eye sight dims, but is it normal to get so bad so quickly?
When I turned 43 I, all of the sudden couldn’t read a phone book anymore. Since I’m the youngest of my friends I was the last one to be able to see that well without glasses.
Over the last 5 years it has rapidly gotten worse. Now even distance vision is fuzzy.
I got new glasses in January and already I can’t read small print. I feel like if this doesn’t slow down I will be totally blind by the time I’m 60.
Is this how normal age related vision loss goes?
My eye sight is way worse than my husbands and started loosing his vision before me and he’s 11 years older than me.
I have a whole new empathy for the visually impaired!
