    Any fellow peeps here wearing reading glasses? I'm so sick of them and it really hinders my life from seeing what fuse to pull working on the car, reading fucking labels to the most common ones, checking out texts on my phone. And on top of it, I think it's getting worse.

    FYI, the Raindrop inlays was just approved by the FDA in 6/16.

    I've got me an appointment tomorrow to see if I'm a good candidate to fap glasses-free.

    Stern related because, Howie, Robin, Fred wears reading glasses.

    Good luck.

    I have glasses for when my eyes feel strained but try not to depend on them much.

    I have them for driving at night(mostly)
    but they're really for distance

    i really didn't believe my vision was getting bad as i aged
    and then i put the glasses on

    i needed glasses

    I'm the opposite. I need glasses to see tv and driving and stuff, but then I can't see my phone! :bigcry:

    I need bifocals. :depressed:

    No thanks. I'm not bothered by glasses to the point I'd be willing to shoot lasers at my eyes or have them install contacts under my eyeballs.

    I hate glasses because I always always always have red dots on either side of my nose. Anyone else have that issue?

    I only wear sunglasses cuz I'm cool. :cool:

    I had laser surgery and it was fine. I don't miss glasses or contacts at all. Couldn't wait to get rid of them. Now I was blind as a bat without them so for me, it was worth it. But if you can see pretty good without them, then maybe using glasses for the few times you need them is the way to go.

    My dad is 77, he started taking CoQ10 and stopped wearing readers a year ago. I know nothing about it at all- he has a degree in Pharmacology.
