I was about eight years old when I first noticed that, unlike me, other kids could see the blackboard without squinting. I didn’t want to get glasses so I didn’t tell my parents that I had a slight vision problem.
When I was eleven, the school sponsored a vision screening for students. My mother was horrified to receive a report along the lines of, ‘Did you know your daughter can’t see an arm’s length past her face?’ So much for avoiding glasses.
How about you? Do you wear glasses? When did you get your first pair?
