this sentence is nonsense. People don't go blind because they wear thick glasses...

Do you have a better idea?

I don't know what the japanese sentens says, but if it says the same, it is nonsensical...

Perhaps: "she's wearing thick glasses because her eyesight is impaired"?

I was trying to find a reason why she would dread going blind.

because she loves reading?
