license renewal time?
I have these thoughts in these situations.
Sorry to hear that. My eyesight isn't the greatest, so I feel for you.
i'm okay, Simon, i just enjoyed the comic... (i mean, i wear bifocals and all, but they work pretty well.)
I just finally got bifocals.
I've been wearing glasses since I was six, but I've needed them since infancy. My dad and I will sometimes remember how I used to hold the fence and squint to see if it was he who was picking me up from daycare. When I first got my glasses, I remember crying when I put them on. Not because I was happy that I could see things clearly, but because I was angry that everything looked so different.
I wear reading glasses (+2.50 power) and have multiple pairs scattered all around the house, in my car, on my school bus, etc... I am "F"-ing blind without them!
Distance-wise, I am 20/30 according to the doctors when I go for my annual CDL physical. Close up, I'm blind as a bat.
Oh! I got mine about that age too. I was amazed at how the world really looked. It was a great day in my life.
The only things I was excited about was being able to read signs and the facts that street lights didn't look like little clusters anymore. Lol
I actually wore “fashion glasses” in the 90s for a brief time. The lenses had 0 prescription. I guess I was going for that Dr. Greene (from ER) look.
If you think glasses make a difference (and they DO), wait until you get cataracts and then have them removed. As they say, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
I think the creator of that comic is touching on something that is actually serious.
Since I am not only middle aged and glasses wearing but also deafened in adulthood over a fairly long period of time, and have had glaucoma since I was a child, (very unusual, that), I have spent a lot of time being tested for vision/hearing. The fact that you have to try hard to make sure you give the clinicians good information versus the fact that this is a test YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL kind of bugs me. You have to publicly demonstrate just how ****ed you are when most of us spend our time in public trying not to seem ****ed.
it was a thing. you werent alone. that's just how it goes with fads. in retrospect they never look like as much fun as they were. pet rocks were funny. and then they werent. and now everybody thinks it was dumb. but for a minute they were pretty funny. and you could make pet rock jokes substituting other objects - it was great. but find anyone who'll say that now. cant be done.
That's sort of Nathan Pyle's stock in trade. He does it very well. Quite humane really. Humane and funny.
The way the aliens speak English is great. I suspect that is how I sounded to the farm/ranch kids back in elementary school when we moved out into the sticks.
At my current age, the vast majority of life looks like "little clusters" to me, but not necessarily visually.
After cataract surgery on the worse eye, your 'good' eye will seem like a very dirty windshield by comparison..then when the other one is done --- wow.....white is really white and not like a 40 year old piece of paper......I didn't know that the arrow buttons on my roku remote was purple.....it used to look black. What a difference.
