So, uh, I'd just like to say that five months ago I was way more optimistic than I should have been. https://mastodon.social/@esm/103813164418929142
So apparently I've adjusted. the eye strain I felt even a week ago is gone.
This has meant I've taken a very large bite out of my reading queue in a very short period of time. I'm reading significantly faster than I was a few months ago.
It seems obvious now that my dip in reading was due to unnoticed discomfort (the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling_frog effect); my eyesight was degrading so slowly that I hadn't noticed it.
I should have done this a year ago. 🤦♂️
Proof that I am, in fact, aging: I've owned reading glasses for a few months now.
How do people get used to these things? These past few weeks (thanks, pandemic!) I've been reading almost as voraciously as I did when I was in high school, but while the early mild headaches and dizziness went away quickly with regular use, my eyes are still *exhausted* after a session.
Maybe I'm just working them harder, now that I can actually focus on what I'm reading, rather than inferring from vague shapes?
Some of that bird website was my fault, but now I'm here.
