My eyes are getting worse and worse



I swear the day I turned 40 my eye sight started to decline. I've worn glasses my whole life for distance but I find myself holding books at a totally different distance than I used to. Moving food items closer to my face to read the labels, then maybe back a bit further………hunting for a place I can actually see the small print.

Do you find your vision changing as you get older? 

What do you do to make it less of a struggle?

I've worn glasses/contacts since I was in the 4th grade, but the switch to bifocals has been challenging. It's so odd that at times I have to remove my glasses to see close work more clearly! I hope it's teaching me compassion for others.

Sorry to hear about your eyesight! Mine's still pretty okay but I remember my mom getting new glasses and experiencing miracles with it...:)

I've had glasses since 7th grade. I have a stigmatism in one eye so I have not always had that great of eyesight. But I think my eyesight has changed some as I have gotten older.

It can be so frustrating, right? I have had eye problems my whole life... having eye surgeries as a teenager to save my sight. Now that I am in my 40s, reading glasses in addition to my contacts are a must... it reminds me not to take all the seeing of all the glorious things for granted! Stopping by from our 31Dayers fb group! Have a blessed weekend!

I've definitely noticed that my contacts don't help as much as they used to and more and more I don't like driving at night!
