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
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*
