  1. You are so interesting! I don’t think I’ve read a single thing
    like this before. So great to discover someone
    with a few genuine thoughts on this issue.

    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  2. I always wondered. Years ago my eye doctor told me I had 20/40 vision, but I think he was wrong. My prescription is for astigmatism contacts are -3.75 so I guess I am around 20/200. My husband had an eye exam today and was told he had 20/30 in one eye and 20/60 in the other. The doctor said he was almost legally blind in his 20/60 eye. I guess I AM legally blind since I’m 20/200.

    • He might be unable to drive without correction but he isn’t legally blind. I think that starts at around -8. I am at -10.50 and I wouldn’t be able to tell a friend from a stranger until they are within smelling distance without my glasses.

      • Technically 20/200 is legally blind even though I feel that’s pretty common compared to numbers like yours and myself (I’m 20/500) without any glasses I feel useless so I understood the smelling distance all too well lol.

  4. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I feel that you just could do with a few % to power the message house a little bit, however instead of that,
    that is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  5. Just got my first glasses yesterday. Right eye was 20/100, and Left was 20/80.
    Glasses are Right eye – 1.75, and Left eye -1.50
    With glasses 20/20 in each eye, and close to 20/15 with both.
    First impression was how incredibly clear vision is, but how small everything appears to be. Also I feel that I need to push reading material farther away from my eyes.
    After spending the better part of the day wearing the glasses, when I took them off how blurred my vision is.
