Something more personal than this has been of late...|
I probably was near-sighted from about fourth grade, but nobody realized until I was in Junior High. When I finally got glasses, I remember walking around and feeling like the ground was coming up at me and it seemed WAY closer than it did without them. It was disorienting for a while.
I don't actually NEED new glasses, but the coating on the frame is chipped and marred and I WANT new glasses.
It's good to hear someone else say that. I had lasik last year. I'd been nearsighted but didn't wear glasses, nor contacts for more than the few hours necessary to make it through the license branch to renew the DL, so the change was abrupt. It took me several days to get used to it, and I often found myself closing my eyes while riding in a car because I could see *so much* in the distance that it was unsettling.
