I was and am an avid reader. Back in the days when most nights were free, I can finish 2-3 books a week which really cost me money for I have to buy 3to 12 books a month. Being an architect, my nature of work also pushed me to use my eyes incessantly. Being astigmatic early on, I knew I was going to wear eyeglasses sooner or later. By age 40, I had to use reading glasses. Some years later, I had to use progressive prescription eyeglasses. My current pair of eyeglasses is 2 years old. I need new ones. My left eye is blurry even with my eyeglasses on. Gosh! I wonder how much a new pair will cost me this time.
