Why do you need glasses to look in a mirror?
Just got glasses for distance seeing and this has been bugging me. Why do you have the same sight focus when both staring out into the distance, and looking into a mirror that is a couple of feet away? Why are glasses (that normally help you see objects many feet away, out of focus) required to see something that is 2 feet away (i.e. the mirror)?
