Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

There is nothing that you need to do or can do to keep "really good vision" ie: not needing glasses. Already, by getting good genes from your parents you already have an very good chance of keeping excellent vision just like they have.


Ok, understood. Thank you :)

Dr. Rick :

I would be that they only use glasses to read with......presbyopia is a natural thing that was designed by whoever is in charge to sell glasses to old folks! lol.

Dr. Rick :

My pleasure.
