I've never heard of anyone having cataracts at such a young
age. You are quite the anomaly.

Back in those days, wearing glasses had a sigma. Now, vanity
is quite the factor for looking good in the right frames!

Try a blu-blocker pair. They can also be available in
prescription - but you might end up paying throug the nose.
However, there are some online options that can produce a blu-
blocker prescription version for much less money than from a
local brick'n'mortar office.
