So I went for a check-up at the eye doctor because my vision has gotten so wonky. I see better without my glasses and I didn't know why. That's because my vision is once again 20/20. Do you believe it? All these years I've worn glasses and now they are back to normal. They are blaming the cataracts. I guess it changes your eyes for the better sometimes. Not often, but I don't care. My cataracts aren't bad enough for surgery yet, so now we just play the waiting game. But I did have to pick up some readers. (Glasses for reading.) I still can't see close up. :) That's an age thing, I believe he guessed. No more glasses. Yay. Well, except when I read. :) I'm so thrilled it was nothing weird like a tumor or something. Hee hee. I was afraid there was one on my eyes and they had changed everything. Proves you shouldn't worry about things. Wait to worry when you have something legitimate to worry about. Have a good Tuesday.

I think it's awesome! Yay for only needing reading glasses!

My eyesight has actually improved a little. My optician commented on that the last two times I had my vision checked. It'd be great if I got to the stage of not needing ordinary glasses, but I doubt it'll happen for me. I've been short-sighted since my teens.

I'm glad your worry turned out to be completely unfounded. :o)

That's great!

A couple of years ago the optician discovered that my left eye had improved quite markedly - unfortunately the right eye is losing acuity, possibly because of cataract.

But I don't need glasses for reading, just for distance.

It's normal to get gradually more longsighted as you get old(er) so if you start out short sighted that does mean your eyesight would improve. It's unusual for it to normalise but logically it must happen sometimes. You got lucky!
