When you last had an appointment with your eye doctor, they likely gave you the chance to buy two pairs of eyeglasses. Both pairs had an identical prescription, but the second was meant to be used as a backup.
Of course, if it’s been more than a few years since you’ve last been to the eye doctor’s, you could put on your backup pair of eyeglasses and discover your vision is still blurry or otherwise unclear.

Many of these conditions can’t be “seen” or felt until very advanced, which is why proper detection is so important
