I have been to a few different doctors over the past several months in an attempt to find a way to improve my vision. I have 20/40 vision in my right eye and 20/30 in my left. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a way. No prescription for glasses or contacts can improve my vision, though reading glasses offer a small improvement when viewing text or a computer screen. At my most recent appointment I inquired about eye surgery but was told that there could be no improvement. From how they describe my problem it seems as if there is nothing wrong with my eyes at all but only that I have less acuity. What is most interesting to me though is that my vision has improved tremendously on its own, with no corrective measures. When I was a child I was nearly blind with 20/200 and 20/100 vision. Two years ago, when I was 22, my vision was 20/60 and 20/50. I was hoping somone could offer some insight into my problem and perhaps suggest another method for improving my eyesight, which must be either 20/20 or correctable to 20/20, in order for me to peruse my career.View Thread
