I've heard that this can or will eventually affect both eyes. Just my
left eye is involved. I'm from the US, 49.
I would imagine having both eyes victimized would present more of a
challenge. So far glasses are OK for me. Although I need to get them checked
at least once a year or if I notice a problem.
As far as day to day stuff goes, Summertime poses more problems at dusk
for me like playing basketball or baseball with my son. Then there's the
lonley road and bright headlights.
If you read back in the archives, there's some other strange things that
could be involved. They're not as important as getting your vision
