    • i hadn't heard of actual pin hole glasses before.   
    • My first choice would be the best slabbed and graded Shieldback Sovs circa 1840's I could get. My second choice would be a slabbed and graded Gothic Crown or Florin. I would be looking at keeping for at least 10 years. Like @h103efa I see PM's as protection rather than investing.
    • i worked in an Ophthalmology unit once upon a time - lasers were not as common as today but irrespective of that all the medical staff who needed glasses wore glasses.
    • i think i would get a sovereign or half sovereign. i have stacked a good deal of silver - i think if i had my time over i would concentrate on buying bullion sovereigns.  You can always find a buyer for sovereigns. Over the time i have been here there has been a lot more action with graded coins - i would not bother with these, i would go for weight of gold in sovereigns. You are getting gold in a small coin at the price of a larger coin
    • My brother had Lasik on his eyes and he experiences glare at night from headlights and reflections off wet roads. He says it's still worth it though and tells me to get mine done too. I have a friend who says it was the best thing he ever had done. Personally I would never let anyone burn the surface of my eyeball with a laser. Try the Bates Method of natural vision correction...you can get books on it. Also google Joseph Lieberman and Martin Brofman...they have books on natural vision correction. Brofman et al maintain it is stress and tension in the eye muscles that distort the eyeball and that it can be released. I use MSM and silver eye drops which soften up the eye tissues and I do the Bates eye exercises....I also wear pin hole glasses at home. Look at your diet and hydration levels as this has a huge impact. I would use reading glasses if needed but just be aware over time, like all glasses, they will make your vision worse.
