I can see clearly, now

You would think better vision would be a blessing but to me it's just worrisome. I've worn glasses with bifocals for the last ten years.; my reading vision being the worst. I can't read anything on the TV screen without my glasses but watching TV in bed I rarely wear them. The other night I noticed I could read the "crawl", that nasty little ticker tape of a message on the bottom of most news shows, without my glasses. I thought nothing of it. The next morning I could read some larger print items that the day before I would surely have needed my glasses.

After all day at my watercolor/drawing classes my near vision was back to abnormal but my distance vision is still somewhat improved. I could read street signs sans the glasses. It seems my better vision present is melting away like the witch in the Wizard of Oz. I really don't know who to thank for that "tender mercy."

Now I wish someone would let me understand this current administration, if only for a few days.

  1. seester, seester, seester at about your age the same thing happened to me and then the better vision lasted about a year. Then one day it went back to awful, like someone turned on or off a switch. I only wish I could read in bed w/out me specs.
