Without my glasses or contacts I can see clearly about a foot in front of my face. Anything beyond that point is a big blur. I think I was born with this near sighted condition because I knew I could not see well, but I thought that was the way everyone viewed the world. When I was seven years old my second grade teacher, Miss Irene, realized I could not see the chalkboard. She reported this to my parents and they immediately took me for glasses. I remember how clear they made the world and how excited I was to see new things! As a teenager I changed to contact lens. Thankfully my vision was able to be corrected and for many years I enjoyed the 20/20 sight that other people took for granted. Then, fifty happened and that close vision which was all I had began to diminish! It happens to all of us. So today as I type this I have my contacts in my eyes and my reading glasses on my nose. It takes both of them to correct my close vision now! The upside to this sad situation is I get a lot of exercise walking around looking for my glasses! Has anyone seen my glasses?
