Eye sight getting worse after holding steady for 5+years
I started to use reading glasses roughly 12 years ago, moving from low magnification up to 3.0. And held there. And was quite capable to still read most print without glasses the longer time went on…. better vision in latter years. I read that it may be a side effect of cataracts, where vision improves for a while before going downhill. It’s going softly down-slope now. I can still read most average print type for a short while as in instructions, etc. as opposed to reading books for hours, but I noticed that I’ve got trouble making sure I got the last little bit of garlic skin off before chopping. So I guess I’m heading for cataract surgery? Maybe? Have had night halos for 8 years or more, have limited night driving. Also, have never seen an eye doctor – only optometrists. So – what type of eye professional should I start out seeing?
