Salamin [sa mata]/ Eyeglasses

@ mirandablue
Nakaka-inggit ang mga taong malinaw ang paningin.  Sa totoo lang, pinagwalang-halaga ko ng aking 20/20 vision hanggang isang araw sinabihan ako ng doktor na kailangan ko na mag salamin.  Meron daw akong hyperopia o farsightedness---malinaw kapag malayo, malabo kapag malapit. Karaniwang problema ito ng mga nagkaka-edad...kaso trentaydos lang ako noon, at mas malabo pa ang mata ko sa aking nanay.  Sa tulad kong mahilig magbasa, malaking ginhawa ang reading glasses.  At kapag wala akong salamin, kahit menu di ko mabasa kaya ipapabasa ko na lang sa waiter.  At kalimutan na natin ang texting, di kaya ng powers pag walang salamin.:p

Lucky are those who have good eyesight.  Truth be told, I took for granted my 20/20 vision until the day the doctor told me I need to be fitted with prescription glasses.  My vision defect is called hyperopia, also known as farsightedness---this causes difficulty  focusing on near objects, a clearer vision on distant objects.  It's a common problem that comes with aging but I was only 32, and my mom had better eyesight.  For somebody who loves to read, reading glasses really improved my life---it reduced my headaches and squinting.  And when I forget my glasses?  I couldn't even read the menu, I had to ask the waiter to read it for me.  And forget texting!  If I don't text back, it means my reading glasses are somewhere else!:p

For Thursday Two Questions - you are invited to answer and join:


1.  When was the last time you had your eyes checked?

  • My last eye check-up was in November last year. I usually have my eyes checked a few weeks after my birthday.  The doctor suggested progressive lenses but I'm not ready for it, psychologically.:p  So he prescribed another pair of glasses for driving.
2.  Do you think eyeglasses affect your looks, your lifestyle?
  • Yes and yes.  I think I look "older" with glasses...people started calling me "ma'am", it used to be "miss".:p  A girlfriend gets excited while we're in a restaurant and I couldn't even see clearly what or who she's excited about!  Imagine all those sexy, good-looking guys walking by and I missed them!  My sister just told me that I look like an old woman when texting without my glasses on.  Who would want to read at the beach wearing a pair of reading glasses? *LOL*

i like the second photo the most. ang ganda ng pagkafocus ng mga image sa salamin mo.

i had my eye check up last year December and yes it affects my lifestyle because i feel like i can't survive without my glasses. when i'm not wearing my glasses, i have to always do a second look or third look at everything...nakakainis.

buti nga ay medyo matanda ka na nang nangailangan ng salamin. ako ay magti-tinedyer pa lamang nang nalaman kong kailangan ko ng magsalamin :( mahirap talaga ang malabo ang mata :(

Heto ang aking lahok. Kung maaari po ay paki-like ang aking FB page. Maraming salamat!

Maligayang Hwebes!

far sighted ka pala, ako naman myopic (near-sighted). may salamin din ako sa mata (d&g pa nga, hehe) pero iniwan ko sa pinas. malamang tumaas na din grado ng mata ko; your post reminds me for me to bring myself and my wife to optometrist for refraction.

Thank God for glasses talaga! Kundi e malabo na ang mundo ko mula nang 10 years old pa lang ako. At kung talagang hassle na mag-salamin, may corrective eye surgery na sa mga matatapang - hahaha!

Happy LP, Luna!

1. It's been so long I can't even remember :)

2. I think it does effect your looks. And, I think that's why so many people where contact lenses.

1. Just had my eyes checked and had new lenses put in the D&G frames that I love.
2. Actually, I love my eyeglasses. I get so many compliments on them. I looked long and hard for this particular frame after seeing it in a D & G ad in a magazine. I actually met with a company rep to try them on before purchasing them. I love them so much that I had new lenses put into them when my eye prescription changed.

1. I had my eyes checked in April of last year I think. I had to get new glasses. I went more than 10 years without checking them. I couldn't afford it.


2. Do you think eyeglasses affect your looks, your lifestyle?

Yes. My wearing glasses since a child with being teased and having low self esteem has stayed with me and it's a battle to accept that wearing glasses doesn't affect the person I am and should be.

Enjoy your weekend!

I get my eyes checked once a year. I do it to make sure there is nothing else I should be worry about.
Glasses makes someone look more studious. I don't wear mine, but might have to one day.
Thanks for linking up this week. Have a great weekend

My family needs to wear glasses, bad genes, I tell you, and we all have our eyes checked every year!

Glasses are such a bother to wear, but they do change the way we look..
