It is something I have heard before and usually has a simple explanation. You see as folks get older, their prescription becomes a bit more nearsighted. In fact people who normally cant read without reading glasses sometimes can read again without glasses, this is often referred to as second sight. The reason this happens is that the eye becomes a bit more nearsighted due to a cataract starting to form (even if it is not ripe enough yet). This in turn leads to occasional symptoms as you describe. If your eyes were beginning to cross, you would actually see two images of things that you are looking at. This is a common condition people have, and usually is not a cause for alarm, I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
Thank you so much. I feel like you have informed me enough that I can address the issue with my Ophthalmologist.
