Stan Lee's eyesight is deteriorating

Lee's revealed that his eyesight is sadly fading in his old age:
Stan Lee, the former president of Marvel Comics and creator of Spiderman, has revealed his eyesight has become so bad he can no longer read.

The 93-year-old - who co-created the likes of the webbed superhero, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and X-Men during his long-standing stellar career with Marvel - says he is not blind, but reading is no longer possible.

'My eyesight has gotten terrible and I can't read comic books anymore,' Lee said in a new interview with the Radio Times.

Lee continued: 'The print is too small. Not only a comic book, but I can't read the newspaper or a novel or anything. I can't even read a script.

'I come up with ideas for stories and somebody writes an outline for me – but I can't read it.

'I have to hope it's good. If something is very important, they print it in very big type for me to read – but that's all I can do. I have the same trouble with hearing. It's awful to feel a thousand years old.'

Lee described losing his eyesight as his 'biggest miss in the world'.

'I miss reading 100 per cent,' he told the magazine.
He wouldn't be the only veteran of comicdom whose eyesight unfortunately began ailing in later times. Even Joe Shuster's eyesight began fading towards the end of his life. But it's certainly sad when guys with as impressive a record as they've had end up suffering from weakening eyesight as time goes by.

That is very sad, but if there is one positive it would be that he can't see the damage that the current writers have done and continue to do to his creations.

Let's hope something can be done though to improve his sight.
