    The past month or so I have been having to hold my reading material farther and father away so its in focus. The fuck is that? Near or far sightedness?


    Now I know how Dave must feel.

    That is far sightedness.

    My brother is blind as a bat...he has to hold shit right up to his face, even with his fat ass glasses. He's a fucking idiot tho, so fuck him.

    I've been noticing the same thing when reading, but every pair of reading glasses I try on at the drug store look like shit on me. Imma go to Nordstrom and see if they have any decent styles.

    I think I only have 1 or 2 more degrees to go, before I can declare myself "legally blind", without contacts or glasses.

    So looking cool is more important that being able to read?

    Just get some Buddy Holly looking hipster glasses. :D

    OK, I guess it's 20/200 vision.

    WTF does that even mean.
    My script is -7.25 in both eyes.
    I'm pretty sure that qualifies me.

    "Many people feel that they are legally blind because when they remove their glasses or contact lenses, they cannot see a foot in front of their face. However, when they put on their vision correction, they can see 20/20. As long as you can be corrected to 20/20 with some visual aid, you are not considered legally blind.

    The true definition of "legal blindness" is based upon the best level of vision that you can achieve or the best vision you can be corrected to."



    Well ain't that a bitch.

    I'm not concerned with cool as much as I am about showing my woman I have a weakness - even if it's only my eyes. I need a look I can feel confident with. The BH look is too trendy for me.
