Boomer Vision--Sharp as it Ever Was?
I wear glasses with transition lenses these days--three sections--distance, mid-distance, and close-up. The distance part works as well as can be expected, the middle-distance part works depending on what you consider 'middle,' but the close-up is marginally better than blindness. How often do you see boomers hitching their glasses up to their foreheads to read a map, a label, the newspaper?
Apparently there's a new procedure available called "CK" - conductive keratoplasty--which may be able to correct changes to our aging eyes. While it is supposed to correct far-sightedness, it may not be you for if you're also nearsighted. It sure would be nice though, not to have to carry a miner's light and a magnifying glass every time you want to read the menu.
