With luck, I’ll be the owner of a new pair of glasses soon. If my husband and I can get appointments today, we’ll be on our way to clearer vision. My eyesight gets noticeably worse every year. I’ve had to resort to adding a pair of reading glasses to my progressives on bad days and, as always, my myopia is also worse. My astigmatism makes every night a starry night, but it seems to have stabilized a long time ago. In short, without my glasses, I can’t see any better than Plato’s cave dwellers.
