Abstract

Wearing glasses is an emotional subject for a lot of people with a lot of myth masquerading as fact. It is true that vision changes as we age and, in many cases, the changes can be gradual and creep up on us. Vision develops and changes throughout childhood, and eyesight stabilises for most people as an adult and then starts to change again when we reach the mid-forties when reading starts to be an issue.
