Not many people seem to know this, but my eyesight is severely handicapped. For years I've hidden this fact with my best friend, the contact lens.
Without any eye wear at all, the furthest I can go without seeing something is around 3 or 4 inches. Everything from there on out is blurry. Objects become unidentifiable at about 2 feet, and people are indistinguishable by 3. Want to experience my life? Hold a magnifying glass to each eye, and you'll understand.
I'll likely try for laser correction in the near future, which sounds so fantastic. To be able to go in and fix my eyes in an hour would be unimaginable. It's like having a broken arm, and the doctor rubs it with his genie lamp, and poof! It's fixed.
So guys, lemme know what you think: Contacts or glasses?
