A few weeks ago I noticed it was getting a little difficult to read the newspaper, books and magazines. The words were blurry! Could it be that I needed glasses?
Like everyone I’m getting older, but I’m not ready for Depends, dentures or a Camry. I shouldn’t feel badly….I’ve known people who have worn glasses since childhood. Once a man turns 40, your eyesight can change. That’s according to one of our neighbors, Stan Zyskowski whose family owns Central Optica in West Hartford. “It happened to me, too, Dennis,” Stan told me. We are not alone. Stan says a decline in eyesight can happen suddenly once you hit the big 4-0.
Anyway, he referred me to an optometrist. Until my checkup, I’s using a cheap pair of reading glasses from the drug store. I’ll keep you posted.
