How's Good Is Your Eyesight?

Fri Dec 07, 2001 5:24 pm

I went to get an eye exam today after I noticed my right eye to be giving me crisper eyesight then my left one.My assumptions were well founded.

It seems my right eye is nearly 20/20 while my left eye is weaker at around 20/40. He suggested I wear glasses when im driving or need to see stuff in the distance clearly and said that the sight problem was related to growing too fast at some point these las 6 years since my eye exam in 1995 showed that I had perfect vision. The specs he perscribed will give me 20/15 or better eyesight.

I'm kinda glad I finaly went to the opotmetrist after a few years of denial and squinting through high school. I haven't recieved my glasses yet but I'm sure they will help me out.

So back to the topic, how good is your eyesight( provide 20/XX figures if you know them)?

I don't have the scores, but my left eye is pretty close to 20/20...if people look through that lens on my glasses it just looks clear to them with no difference. My right eye it is a bit wore however...and I need glasses espescially in lectures.

However, I passed the sight test for my driver's license without my glasses.

I was 22 when I started wearing glasses for reading and close-up work and computers. Thankfully my eyesight has not got worse since then. It's not bad..I can get away with not wearing glasses, but it's better if I have them on.

However, I passed the sight test for my driver's license without my glasses. ..yeah, me too thankfully, because I already wear sunglasses when driving most of the time, and while my distance vision is not perfect I don't have any problems when driving.

My optometrist said that human eyes were not designed to focus close-up on things like computers or books for any length of time ..is that why so many people have glasses??

Sorry I can't remember what my 20/xx vision is...

Good question !

I don't know how much I have on 20.
But my lenses are -4 dioptries for both eyes.

I always thought I had then 0/10, cos' I can't read any letter, even the biggest, at 5 meters. But it seems 0/10 is for blind people.
I would be interested to know how much I have.

oh jeez, LOL, the sight test is very easy at the the DMV. I cannot beleive that many of my friends failed it. I could easily read the last bottom line on the machine. I am like 20/200 uncorrected but with my lenses on im and equal to 20/20 or better corrected. I don't wear glasses anymore because I couldn't be able to fly with my cool shades. I use to have shades that clips on your frames but it looks horrible and very uncomfortable.

My left eye is 20/20, and my right is 20/13. This doesn't bother me at all. It's just normal for me. I'm not complaining; I'm the only one in my family with good eyes.

YKA, I was given glasses um....8 years ago, but never used them. I decided that I will never use glasses until I definitely have to and can't see a shit without them. Right now, I don't need them. Looking at a plane flying 10km above me, I can tell ya the airplane type, number of engines, location of engines.

Also, at school that one bitch (school nurse or whatever it was) told me that my vision is so excellent that it is very hard to prove that I need glasses.

My left eye replaces right one and vice versa when looking close/far. And thanks to that, I can see clearly everything at distances from 5cm to >10km thus making my vision excellent.

I'd say my vision is 20/50 for both eyes. I used to have 20/20 vision until I was in the 7th or 8th grade. I dunno how the f**k my eyesight got screwed up so now I have to wear gay glasses when I drive. I'm a bit nearsighted, so I need to wear glasses(or contacts) to see things far away. And here comes the bad part: In 8th grade, I was given the option to wear contacts. I chose to do so. The contacts were extremely difficult to put on my eyes, and they took very long to put them on. Plus, whenever I did manage to get them on, the contacts simply just FELL OFF MY EYES!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable. In fact, one day when I was in the 9th grade, I was sitting at the computer when all of a sudden my right contact lens just dropped right off my eye. A minute later, my left contact lens fell off! So now I just stick with glasses, and I can't wait till I get laser eye surgery to restore my perfect vision once and for all!

Airways1, Walking makes you blind?

YKA , My eyesight is good enough so's I can see the grammatical error in your heading. Do you see it in this sentence?

I went to take the New york city lifeguard tryout test and I didnt even get into the water because they did an eye exam and found that I didnt meet the requirements...I get another chance though. I have had bad vision since 7th grade but I have always avoided glasses. Last night during my flying lesson my instructor asked me how good my vision was because he felt like I judged things too high or low and stuff like that. I guess its time to go get those wonderful glasses I have always wanted.

IMIssPiedmont, Its not a gramatical error, the original title was suppose to be "How's Your Eyesight" but at the last moment I figured "How good is your eyesight" would be a better titile. Somehow I forgot to change the How's to How and hence the they typo.

Used to be -4.0 -1.0 x 170 in each eye, then suffered an injury to one eye, ended up being totally blind for two weeks out of that one...
After a year I came back... vision is unchanged in the one eye, and -3.75 -1.75x 010 in the other, go figure...

Clearly I have overindulged in the Five Knuckle Shuffle Dept., since I'm completely blind in one eye (since birth actually so wanking had nothing to do with it) and quite short-sighted in the other. I can still get a PPL though (not that I plan to, leave it to the pros, thinking JFK jr).

Blind as a bat without my glasses. I'm both nearsighted and astigmatic in both eyes, my left eye is very astigmatized.

A few years ago I went to be fitted for contact lenses and found out that my corneas are shaped weird so that they won't hold the lenses. I can only wear glasses until (and that's a big until IF) I have laser surgery to reshape my corneas.

I also have a focusing spasm and a lot of difficulty with spatial relationships in general, so... You can probably "see" why I'm not going to pursue a pilot's license of any sort.

My eyes:
OD -3.00, -0.5, 180°
OS -1.75
Needless to say, I see crap without my worst enemy in life, i.e. my glasses. I hate the way I look in glasses, so unnatural, so nerdish. I tried contacts but couldn't wear them, now I'm pestering my parents to let me try again, so I hope they let me and they work out for me. When I write I usually take off my glasses, though, I'm short sighted and I can see writing OK, worst with people around ten feet away from me... I hardly recognize them! When I'm sitting at coffee with girls I also make it a point to take off my glasses.
