My eyes

Sadly, I have my glasses for a reason.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d still wear them if I didn’t. Glasses are hella fashionable and give you that small boost of +1 INT that can make all the difference. Still, it’s nice to be able to not put them on sometimes. On those lazy Sundays or when you need to physically clear your head. And I can do that, I don’t need my glasses to see. They’re mainly for seeing things at a distance better, but I fear my vision has gotten a bit worse lately.

Without glasses I can look at my laptop screen and read normal-sized text on it more or less fine, but it’s all a tad blurry, just barely out of focus. It’s especially noticeable if I’ve had my glasses on for a little while and then take them off. The blurriness also comes with some extra strain on the pair of lookers, presumably caused by my natural reflex to still attempt to get things into focus. And if I’m in a situation where that reflex fires for hours on end, well, I get tired pretty quickly.

Honestly, I’m not even sure if my glasses bring me the world in full-HD anymore. I may need to get the gogglers checked out again sometime soon, I’m waaay past my “once every four years” schedule by now. Wouldn’t surprise me if my left eye had gotten worse while my right eye has improved, as they always do.

Guess we’ll see. Heh.

    Given that the recommendation I’ve had is “once every two years” I think it’s way past time that you got your eyes checked. I can see fine without my glasses but I have noticed a difference. I also kinda wear them to further protect my eyes given that I spend almost all day staring at a computer.

    You’re fortunate. I need glasses to read almost anything more than a few inches away, and my self-consciousness means I have to go get new contacts every year.

    Still, you should get your eyes tested!
