My vision got worse very slowly
Back then I started to gradually notice a number of different things, like that I couldn’t really read inscriptions on old buildings anymore, or that it was difficult to make out signs that had white letters on a brown background. I was very sensitive to bright light too. Colors were no longer as intense. I didn’t realize all of this consciously, because it was a gradual process and my vision got worse very slowly.
After a while my doctor said that it was time to do something about my cataracts. She advised me to get both of my lenses replaced.
