So yeah I can see how many fingers you’re holding up
THIS IS VERY ACCURATE
THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL
Is this accurate? Is this what it’s actually like to not be able to see clearly?
i mean unless your vision is actually worse than that at the distance most of those photos are taken
^^^ The night time bridge/city is more focused/clearer than it would be for me. The bottom group of people is probably pretty close to my vision - although the way these images were softened is much, well… softer than my vision, lol. Things get blurred and indistinct and halo-y but (depending on the light and distance and detail of object) everything retains a grainy sort of reality for me. (Also my eyesight is better than the newspaper pic at that distance.)
This is probably a little worse than my vision, which is -1.00 averaging between both my eyes. However, my mother has vision which is -8 or -9 right now (it has been as bad as -10 for her) … at the distance these gifs are, she wouldn’t see anything of value, maybe some colours interacting with each other, but no. Without contacts or glasses on, her world is blobs.
My vision is pretty bad, but as bad as your mom’s, but bad. Like -5. The top one is pretty accurate, but my vision is worse than all the others lol.
Wrong, at least for me. Maybe for some people this is how you see with glasses but I’ve been wearing mine since I was in middle school. With my glasses my vision is perfect, I honestly don’t see anything around the outside of my rims unless I make myself or am made to be aware of it. It’s probably just something I’ve grown accustomed to. My brain is telling me “You don’t like not being able to see proper, we’ll just erase that for ya.”
And, to be a bit technical about it, You see how much of the arms of those glasses are poking out in front of the lens? Who wears their glasses that far forward? In order for myself to replicate this I’d have to hold my glasses two inches in front of my nose.
Still very pretty photos. Also wildly inaccurate.
