Are you going to be changing your screen name from Uncle Dave to "coke bottles" ? All kidding aside, I am right there with you but just don't want to see the eye doctor and admit it. I could not see a damn thing on the last eye chart I tried to read (on my own) while I was in the doctors office for something else.

I'll be 43 in August and I need to get my ees checked. Ihave always had great vision but lately things are a little tough to see. Maybe it's all the beers I will say one thing, since I've turned 40 I've seen the doctor more than I saw him in the previous 20 years. Forty def is the begining.
Yep Rex, there all Rookies! 43 that's nothin' Wait till every damn particle of your body just screams out in pain 24 hours a day. It is all down hill after about 25 or so
Cataracts are far worse then just needing glasses.
had surgery, on one eye, Jan 3rd, before that I was LEAGLY BLIND. Boating was all but impossible last year.
Also drove 30k+ miles in 2010, had sunglasses on at night just to drive.
Turned 41 in Jan
At least I can still see.
You guys are all amateurs at this old age shit geezus.

Eyes shot, hair gone,... Thank god #3 is still working as designed
I almost thought it was time for glasses just two days ago. Was in some meetings with Powerpoint presentations. I could barely read the crap up there. Never had issues like that before. Then at the next days meeting everything was clear again.
I realized then I was half(more like 3/4) asleep like 85% of the other people on day one
bifocals... hell, just a rookie.
next, it'll be tri-focals.
and when ya get tired of that, or pukin 5 or 6 times a day is too much for ya, there's lasik so you can go to just readers.
and several years after that, the lasik isn't doing what it did before, so you go back to bi-focals, and it starts all over again.
then, just when ya think you have it dialed, the glaucoma kicks in. they got laser surgery for that too, with a 90% success rate.
of course, you fall into the 10%. so you get to use 2 different drops twice a day for the rest of your life. it's all good, 'cuz you can still see.
and they got stuff for #2 and 3 too...
Crap I need glasses and LOT of light... Can no longer go into a resturant for lunch wearing my prescriptive sun glasses and see the bill......
Aging is not for the meek.... But hey got lots hair....
