NEW YORK—For many people, having their vision corrected for the first time can be a profoundly life-changing experience. In my case, though, there was no “wow” moment. I only began wearing glasses in my mid-30s, and looking through the lenses felt strange for the first few weeks. I recall being conscious of the frame, a solid object that now circumscribed my view. But within a month the sensations went away, and soon the glasses felt natural.

It was 30 years ago this week that I first walked into the offices of Vision Monday, which was then a scrappy start-up whose mission was to cover optical industry business news. I’ve never left.

I was in London recently to visit Moorfields Eye Hospital. Although it’s the oldest eye hospital in the world, there is nothing antique about it.

Until recently, I never thought Jennifer Aniston and I had much in common. In fact, we are a study in contrasts. She’s a superstar actress and mega-celebrity. I edit optical magazines. She’s blonde and beautiful. I’m silver haired. She was once married to Brad Pitt. The closest I’ll ever come to Brad Pitt is seeing him on the silver screen.
