Today, we often can meet people who already have problems with their eyesight at early age. We get used to the fact that in the markets, underground passages and simply on the streets are selling glasses, the variety and quantity of which are simply impressive. Glasses try on even children, not knowing that these pose a serious danger, neglect visiting a doctor-ophthalmologist.
