Did you go to an optometrist (OD) or ophthalmologist (MD)?Did he prescribe new glasses?
I have been to optometrist and had my eyes examined and my eye sight has not changed enough to change glass.
Well, I'm surprised that your prescription did not change enough to get new glasses. Your ability to read now versus before indicates you had a change in prescription.
I couldn't read anything without glasses until about 6 months ago now I can't read with the glasses but can read fine without them
When was your eye exam?
I just recently had one about a month ago Have been two times to him for this but he says he has no answer.
The phenomenon you describe is commonly described as second sight. This is related to early cataracts which often does not change the clarity of vision but may change the prescription and allow you to read better without glasses.
That is why I am surprised your prescription was not different.
So I should have a MD l check for cataracts forming is that what you are saying.
Well, both and MD or OD can check for cataracts.
Your eyes should be dilated to get a good look at the cataract however.
You may consider seeing another doctor for a second opinion, MD or OD.
I know this sounds strange because the OD said the eye sight had not changed enough to change glasses but I can't read with them but read great without them
Yes, I agree with your that the prescription is likely different since your reading ability has changed.
