I'm currently reading these forums without my contacts on, which means I hve to get about 3 inches up clsoe to the monitor. It also means I don't know what I'm writing right now, so I could be writing gibberish for all I know.

Anyway, how bad is your eyesight? Mine is approximately 1000 in each eye, which puts me, I think, in the bottom 1% of eyesight capability.

And I'm only 16 :). Oh well; there's always laser eye surgery.

How can that put you in "the bottom 1% of eyesight capacity"? It sounds like you're just making up stuff.

This one is specifically on laser eye surgery. I found it quite interesting.

20/10 right here. So I have better than normal eyesight.

20/30. I only wear my glasses when I am sitting in the back of the classroom and I need to see the board.

My vision is worse than 20/200, my contact lens prescription is -6.5 and -7.5

I wear reading glasses. Used to wear contacts but I hated them. I probably should wear my glasses more often, but oh well.

By Peacefulchaos (Peacefulchaos) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 07:08 pm: Edit

Well, when I went for my ROTC/Service Academy physical, the optometrist said I had 20/1200, so I think I have all of you beat.

By Ubercollegeman (Ubercollegeman) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 07:44 pm: Edit

My optometrist mentioned something about being in the bottom 1% in terms of ability to see. I'm visually retarded, I guess.

By Cherrybarry (Cherrybarry) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 08:20 pm: Edit

I have 20/70 and -1.5 I think.

By Myway (Myway) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 08:24 pm: Edit

real bad. i'd tell you the prescription, but i squinting just isn't doing it!

By Twinkletoes696 (Twinkletoes696) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 08:50 pm: Edit

Mine was 20/20 the last time it was checked, but that was a while ago. I don't have any problems seeing so I suppose it's probably the same.
