Can I see clearly now?

My annual eye exam is coming up.  I've had a years-long string of not-quite-right corrective lenses.   What can I do to get an accurate prescription this time? [more inside]

Driving from MA to MT, suggestions for stops along the way

Recently divorced, 39, and moving from MA to MT in early Sept. I was planning on driving along the I-90. I'm trying to figure out what is worth visiting, and also where to stop/camp along the way. This is about a 3000 mile drive. And I'm hoping to drive around 600 miles a day, but this is adjustable to some extent. I wouldn't mind spending extra days in some locations if its worthwhile. One stop I plan to make will be Niagra Falls. (I also have both USA and Canadian Passports, so I can cross the border ok.) I hope to camp most of the way. I also have a large 80lb doberman-mix, which complicates things slightly. I'd be willing to get off the I-90 to see some things if its worth it. I'm not in a rush.. I'm more interested in things found in nature rather than city-life type stuff. But stopping in some big cities for some notable food or sites wouldn't be rejected outright.

Who knows what darkness likes in the heart of my left eye?

One of my eyes adjusts to darkness much faster than the other. In fact, I'm pretty much blind in one eye for at least half an hour after the lights go out. I've always had this and assumed it was just me. But it turns out my mother has this as well. I'm not worried about it, but what is it? [more inside]

A glass darkly

When and why did it become the convention that blind people would wear dark glasses? Would the purpose be to hide the eyes or to act as a signifier of blindness? Is it something that is done less these days and what are the reasons why?
