The Slice

When did you know you needed glasses?

There's a tendency to think that people get their first eyeglasses when they are little kids or when they are old.

But sometimes the need first arises when a person is a young adult.

I was in my 20s and in a movie theater watching the credits after “Kramer vs. Kramer” when I realized I needed corrective lenses.

I had noted that the images on the screen were out of focus. And my companion suggested that the problem wasn't with the projector.

When did you realize your vision wasn't all that it should be?
