    Eye conditions effecting numismatics in order of commonality:

    1. Pareidolia
    2. Presbiopia
    3. Cataracts
    4. Glaucoma
    5. Diabetic Retinopathy
    6. Macular degeneration

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.
