I had Lasix, I have better than 20/20 vision, however, I still need reading glasses; it's unavoidable around 40ish ...
You know I wanted to ask about that. I can see well at certain distances, I really don't even know what 20-20 means, I guess it's based on some perception of normal vision at 20 feet.
But what I wanted to ask about is focus? At some times I can focus my eyes to see stuff (mainly text) that is otherwise to blurry to recognize. But by shifting my position to even only a few inches closer makes it much easier to read. The problem with getting older is in otherwise healthy persons not a lack of being able to see something at a given distance but in the elasticity allowing your eyes to actually focus on objects at varying distances.
So the Lasix helped with your normal vision much as glasses would but did it help at all with the focusing aspect.
That's the thing that's getting me, I can see perfectly well but things far away and things really close are now lost to me without optical aids. And even then I have to switch back and forth between the two extreme.
Because focusing has been reduced to a smaller amount when compared to being younger.
