    Do you have eye problems ?

    Rare of the people with a perfect eyesight nowadays. Many people suffer from myopia (shortsightedness), some from astigmatism (problems seeing lines), others from presbyopia (a kind of farsightedness) or hypermetropia (farsightedness). Some people cannot distinguish green from red, which is called Daltonism (color blindness). There is also a condition known as night myopia, in which the person cannot see well in low illumination areas.

    I suffer from slight myopia. What are you ?

    I had amblyopia (lazy eye) when I was very young, but trained my eyes well enough that i would move them relatively individually of each other.

    Unfortunately my right eye is legally blind, but that's because my left eye is so dominant that the right one gets tired easily. This means that corrective lenses
    do very little for me.

    Im badly shortsigted, but with my contact lenses ( or specs ) i can see just fine.
    but if i lose them or something .. im almost tehnicaly classified as "partially sighted", so i am useless without my eye wear.
    I have a bit of astigmatism too, but its corrected.
    Im lucky i guess. One of my friends has really bad eye sight. She wears contact lenses too .. but it doesnt correct all of it .. she has some degree of color blindness .. im not sure the name of the condition .. she cant see pale colors properly, like if someone write red pen on white paper it cause her a problem.
    My dream would be to have perfect vision .. but .. having known a few blind people i feel lucky i have my vision at all.

    I have very slight presbyopia (only +0.25), but not through age as I have had it since I was about 9 or 10. I can see perfectly well without glasses, although I have to hold whatever I'm looking at at arms' length. If I don't wear my glasses for close work I get a headache.

    I'm badly short-sighted. I can manage to find my way around without glasses but it is incredibly unnerving because of the blurriness.

    I've had glasses/contacts since about 5th grade, and my eyes got progressively worse through school. They seem to have stabilized at about -3.75, which I hear is only slightly before the cutoff point of eligibilty for laser eye surgery. I wear contacts exclusively now.

    I plan on fixing my eyes since my health benefits cover some of it. The worst part is waking up with either blurred vision (imagine if there was a fire) or leaving my contacts in and them drying out.

    Slight myopia and wear contacts. I don't think I can handle wearing glasses all the time, seems like too much of a hussle.

    I just visited my eye doctor, and he told me that my eyesight hasn't changed since last year which is a good news. I can read fine without contacts when I hold a book upclose.

    Jref Made Me Go Blind.......

    shortly after becoming addicted to JREF, I was driving home one afternoon and became blind in my left eye and had just tunnel vission in my right eye. Took a couple asprin and lay down, it went away? A week later the same thing happen again for a half hour. The third time it happened I went to an eye surgeon(dumb ol me hates going to doctors). At the time I was reading 2 or 3 hours a day and spending 3 to 5 hours on JREF. Turns out it was due to eye strain; the doc called it optic migrain, no head ache, just temporary blindness. So his solution was to give up reading or give up JREF; I no longer read!

    I guess I'm farsighted since I wear glasses when I read or at the computer as I am now. Guess I'm not invulnerable after all!

    //amblyopia//
    I have a "lazy eye" as well. Well, what the medical definition is anyways. I guess it's because one eye is stronger than the other. It wasn't always like this, but it's become worse with time. One eye is 20/20, the other is like 20/40, maybe a bit worse.
    I should where a contact, but it was difficult for me to get used to. Besides that, I didn't go into the eye doctor because of my "lazy eye", I went because I have a lot of excess "floaters" in my eyes, and they are getting worse and worse. The optometrist didn't tell me anything about that.

    I have Astigmatism in both of my eyes, but it's really bad in my left one and not as bad in my right one.

    I'm very shortsighted, and have a slight astigmatism. I wear contacts (and sometimes specs).

    That's the exact same thing as me, except it's in my left eye.

    I'm nearsighted, only badly on my right eye though My father,brother and sister wear glasses too, go figure who the culprit is ! :/
    I wear glasses since 1st grade, last year I started to wear glasses almost every day when using the pc, tv, movies,etc...I can't stand anything close to my eyes, so I guess contacts are a "nono" for me

    I am longsighted, badly in my right eye. I also have a slight astigmatism in my left. I started wearing contacts about 18 months ago, but I still wear my specs for work and for my archery. I probably get it from my father, as he is also long sighted. My mother is shortsighted, but she blames having me for her bad eyesight. The real pig is my brother has perfect eyesight

    I've been using computers for 15 years and the only eye issue I have is Mild Deuteranopia.
    Yeah tongue twister eh. It's basically slight colour-blindness. All it means is that I can't do those funky coloured dot (Ishihara) tests. http://www.toledo-bend.com/colorblind/Ishihara.html

    Apart from that it's not a problemo. The grass isn't red, and jellybeans aren't all grey.
