Also have your eyes checked for cataracts. The graying out of newsprint, etc., is one of the symptoms.
Speaking of cataracts, 4 years ago, I had this condition in both eyes. My natural lenses were removed
and replaced with soft acrylic(plastic) lenses.
Before, my vision was about 20/250 in each eye and I wore glasses full time. Since the procedure, I have 20/20 in my left eye and 20/25 in the right eye. NOW I only wear glasses for reading and computer viewing.
