Eye problem: You MUST see an eye specialist as soon as possible. At age of 6 I broke 5 pair of glasses and have been taking new glasses for quite some time. Right now at age 72 I can only see out of my left eye but that seems to work. Remember the time period from 18 to 72 is a big change and your need for eye care will be fine. Please keep me posted.
