had my final eye appointment today, and the verdict is that i don't quite have 20/20 vision. i can read the 20/20 line, but it isn't perfectly clear. it's a huge difference from my previous 20/400+, i don't need glasses, and the only time i notice is when i try to read small print on a lighted surface from a distance. i'm not sure if i will be required to wear glasses to drive or not. it's also possible that my eyes will continue to improve a bit. we'll see. i'm free of glasses for everyday life, regardless, and that's wonderful! reading glasses are no big deal.
