Default How often do you make this mistake?

Today on a 2-5 NL game at the borgata , I looked down at 98 in the BB. Four limpers I limp and the flop comes 10 7 6 rainbow.
How perfect!
I check early player bets $20 I call.
Turn is a rag.
The early player bets $40 after I check and I raise to $140.
He calls.
Rag on river.
I push(around $300) he thinks for a while,and I send out brain waves for him to call and he does.
I turn over the nuts only to find my 98 is 97.
He had a set of sixes and I had a magnificant pair of sevens.
Since this is not the first time this has happened,I made a promise to myself to ALWAYS LOOK AT MY CARDS WITH MY READING GLASSES.
Anyone else had misreads this bad?

Yes, but never as costly.

Live should have option of 4-colour deck, obv. And dealer messages: silent.

Many, many, MANY times... way TOO many.

Latest was my last game, where I was going to checkraise the river with my AAd on the four-diamond board, proudly displayed my winner.... and lost with Ah to two pair.

I was playing live and thought I made the flush so I gladly called the guy's all in. If it was any consolation, I did make the straight. But still lost to his genuine flush.

OK so this stupid costly mistake is not all that uncommon.
Suggestions on how to elimate it?
As said in my original post wear your glasses when looking at your cards.
Other ideas?
