Getting older -- blurry vision, night blindnessPage 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I can relate. I had lazik 3 or 4 yrs ago. It was a miracle for two yrs. It is getting worse rapidly now. Night blindness has always been bad, seems to be getting worse as well.
I wear glasses for up close and medium vision now.
My sight gets blurry, especially in the morning when I wake up. Scary driving.
My nerves are edgy too. Noises, loud talkers startles me. I am so sensitive to sounds now. Cant sleep as easily. The charms of getting older!!!! yikes.

This is a public service announcement. Don't use your bold lights all the time. I will be 45 soon (March) and wear glasses for my nearsightedness and driving at night too. Nothing is more distracting than driving a country back road and getting blinded by the light! I will have to do some research about getting yellow glasses I'm so blinded daily by people who think they are the only people on the road.

Jez, I live in the country, and have found that the problem on back roads is not so much the other driver using high beams, as the fact that they are often in trucks and I'm in an Escort. The truck's simply higher off the ground than I am. Averting your eyes to the right as they pass is a big help.

Age, phooey. I started wearing glasses because I was nearsighted in second grade, and looking back, I should have had them at least a year sooner. I got my first bifocals before I was out of grade school, got my first contacts at 15, had cataract surgery at 41 - on both eyes - and now I have virtually no periipheral vision, astigmatism, and my corneas are slowly disintegrating. But until about 10 years ago, I had no trouble seeing anything day or night, everything was remediable one way or another. Now I just try not to think much about it and cross my fingers, hoping that one of these days modern medicine will find a way to repair widespread cornea damage.

I would just love to have problems with driving at night. It would mean I'd still be able to drive during the day.

I'll have you know that I am happy when a guy complains about his vision. There are silver linings in most clouds....

Turn the lights on low, take away his glasses and I look just as good naked as I did when I was 20 something!

Wow, I thought it was just me! All my friends at work are much younger, they want me to go meet them at night and I hate admitting that I can't see a darn thing at night anymore. The line in my forehead from squinting is creating a uni-brow and I can't say how many times people have apparently waved at me and until they are two feet from me I have no clue who they are!
