Could pupil dilation be the cause of my inaccurate eyeglass prescription

How old were you when you got bifocals?

1. How old were you when you got bifocal lenses? 2. How difficult was it to adjust to them, particularly if you got contact lenses? 3. How many different pairs or combinations of lenses did you have to try before finding something that worked? 4. Are there new options in recent years that a near-sighted person with worsening close-up vision should know about? Thanks for helping me go to my eye doctor with good questions ready.

Myopia reduction with age?

Today's eye exam for this 40-something woman (a multifocal contact lenses wearer) showed a slight improvement in myopia versus what another optometrist recorded two years ago. My new optometrist was very thorough, caught some retinal thinning and other issues my previous optometrist had missed, and just seemed very sharp and trustworthy. But should I worry about the decreased myopia values and get my eyes checked again? [more inside]

Getting optimal vision with or without bifocals

Can I get by without bifocals, or am I fooling myself? I hate my Bausch and Lomb multi-focal soft lenses, but have hopes that glasses can be made to work. [more inside]
