Dr. Ryan Stybel: Far away or close? Lisa: Mostly for reading, maybe with a little book now. Dr. Ryan Stybel: I’m going to check your vision up first and what I’ll do is I’ll find your prescription. I’ll make sure the eyes are healthy from front to back. And we’re going to talk about after it. Try to read the second from the top line. Lisa: L, H, N, I don’t -- I really can’t see.
