I'm a liiiiitle bit worried if they detected my eyesight correctly because it feels... odd to be looking at close objects, but my brain might be *very* used to seeing things wrong or maybe my eyes are bad at focusing after all this time, so I should probably give it time
@Gargron I find it takes 3 days to a week to get used to new glasses. That said I am short-sighted and prefer to eg work (I draw and write as a freelancer rn) without my glasses as I find it strains my eyes unnecessarily (they're a good prescription and I always wear them when going out).
@Gargron I feeld that way too when I first got mine (also 8 years ago), after years of being short-sighted, and more specifically being able to see equally from both eyes (the right one was way worse to see than the left).
Now the left one has begun to drop to the level of the right one... And I have an appointment on june 6 to make new glasses. :D
Guess we can say that I'll change the resolution of the reality I can see in a few weeks. ^_^
@Gargron I never realized I needed reading glasses until I was about 40, when one day I was trying to read the tiny type in the TV guide and my arms were too short to rack focus. After laughing for 15 minutes, the DW insisted I have my eyes tested.
A couple of years ago, I also had to get distance glasses because I couldn't read road signs clearly anymore.
Man, was that awesome. What a difference.
