Dilemma of New Glasses with MS

Looking through the glasses at eye chartSitting in the optometrist’s chair I wonder to myself, “Why do I even waste my time? I have a stack of glasses at home that don’t work. When I am in the doctor’s chair they can get my vision perfect. By the time the glasses arrive, my vision has changed and I never wear them.” Sound familiar?

MS plays tricks on my vision. Not only am I dealing with age-related changes in my vision but I also have MS changes based on how well I am doing at any given time. Double and blurry vision comes and goes. The correction for the vision varies too.

I stick it out, order the glasses and hope for the best. Sometimes they help, and, sometimes they don’t.
