I finally got my eyes officially tested, and I was right: I do need glasses. In fact, I have the same condotion my father has: I need glasses for both far away and reading, however the lenses in my eyes have adapted to this so that I can still see sharp most of the time. How I found out I probably needed glasses was when I noticed my eyes would hurt when I tried to read and the letters would begin dancing in front of my eyes, this was because my lenses were trying to correct my vision so that I wouldn't see blurry but were getting incredibly tired in the process.
I had to have a special kind of liquid (I don't know what it's called) put in my eyes that would result in my lenses not being able to work for a while, so that they could see what kind of glasses I would need. Turned out my sight was worse than we'd expected.
However, because I'm still pretty young I don't need to have glasses for looking far away yet. My lenses will correct that for me, and it's not too hard so I won't even notice. For reading, however, I'll need glasses.
And thank god I don't need glasses for both reading and normal, because those things are expensive as hell! I might need them in the future, but that will probably be years. My father got his when he was fourty, so the same might happen to me.
Luckily, glasses don't look so bad on me.
They make me look smarter.
