Now that I’ve had my glasses for a few days, I think it is time for me to post a new picture of myself, and some eyesight comparisons.
Now some eyesight comparisons. I was amazed when I got my glasses and saw how much I had been missing.
Here is a picture of a Hot Air Balloon taken at the 2006 Canberra Balloon Fiesta
Whilst it didn’t look this bad back then, here’s what it would have looked like without glasses in the week before I got my glasses.
I was generally able to see items with enough clarity to know what they were, and even work out some of the writing, but when it came to purely written items I was at a loss. Here’s a calendar (the one I referred to when speaking to John Kerr about my eyesight yesterday).
And again from about three metres without glasses
And from about five metres
Whilst the difference between three and five metres is quite drastic, beyond five metres my vision doesn’t change an awful lot, but does gradually get worse.
And just for the fun of it, here’s Nattie.
And from about five metres without glasses (notice the amazing difference in the carpet).
Since getting the glasses, I have noticed that my eyes have adjusted to them, and things I could see clearly at a close distance previously are now much easier to look at with the glasses on. Things in the distance are much the same as they were without glasses, but with glasses, it’s a whole new world!
