For a moment my poor eyesight misread your age as 72.. Now I see in optical terms it must be 12. Enjoy in good health as I sometimes see written here!While not directly related to the NL, there has been discussion of older eyes. Eyesight is as varied as individuals, and assuming older eyes are always at a disadvantage can be incorrect. I'm 72. My eyes dilate to 7.1mm, I have no sign of cataract, glaucoma, or macular degeneration (something that plagued my father when he was my age). The Ophthalmologist also said he sees none of any sort of symptom that normally causes older folks to need glasses. My eyes are generally healthier than most 30 year olds. While I did not go to the Dr. for a typical eye exam, I can read two lines below 20/20 on the eye chart. I turned out to have a slight retinal occlusion in the bottom of my right eye vision, which does not bother me with binoculars. The only thing I need is reading glasses (non pescription over the counter type) for anything closer than about 4 feet.
