I had a thought brought upon a status update. How are the average Tempers eyes? Need glasses? Don't? Far sighted? Near sighted? Have one eye? Have no eyes? Blind? Vote and find out.

In my case it's pretty...odd. I am the only one in my immediate family who doesn't need glasses. Got that 20/20 vision going on, which is interesting because I am the person in my family who plays the most vidya games...connection? I think so...I also used to do all of those "YOU'LL DAMAGE YOUR EYES IF YOU DO THAT" stuff too. I guess I'm just special.


EDIT: Also, I know there have been topics on this before but the latest I found was from like...2007/2008.

Vision is 60/20, I need glasses to see further away otherwise it becomes harder to see objects out of my arms reach, logic and common sence solves that until it comes down to reading far away signs or boards. I never wear them though...

Near sighted.

Started to happen to me when i now got into gaming. Like a few months after i got a ps1. I don't think it's because i use to play a lot of games/watch tv and what not. Although that's what some people believes...

I read an article once where they said that watching too much tv/playing too much doesn't permenantly affects your vision. It may cause temporary impairment of vision if you do too much things that isn't directly bad for your eyes, meaning you'll regain normal vision after some rest.

That's why i hold no grudge to my bad habits more than my bad genes.....

I'm the gamer in my family, yet I'm the only one with glasses.

My status about my warn bar that had something that didn't because it blurred?

Nearsighted. Not terribly but it certainly has gotten a little worse than it used to be. I need glasses, I SHOULD be wearing them all the time, especially when I drive. Alas, I typically only use them when driving at night and/or when driving through unfamiliar territory (even during daytime). My glasses are also four years old, and I need new ones but can't afford them yet. Oddly, I am the only one in my immediate family with bad eyesight, save for my parents, who are becoming farsighted just because they're getting older (a few years till their 50s)

Need to wear glasses, short-sighted, also have issues with bright light, something to do with my eyes taking far to long to react to the light, and on a bright summers day it really hurts my eyes if I don't wear sunglasses - even if the sun isn't anywhere near my direct eyeline. (one of the many reasons I dislike summer)

Nearly 9 months overdue in getting my eyes tested... I have about 6 unopened letters from my opticians somewhere, but I currently have no money to pay for an exam, never mind the enevitable need to buy a new pair of glasses.

Hoping to be able to sort it out at the end of the month though, looking to get a pair of glasses for extended computer and gaming sessions and another pair for work/driving/day-to-day stuff.

EDIT: Glasses I'm thinking of getting:

Gaming/Computer glasses, will add anti-reflective layer and might add a light coloured tint to the lenses, depending what the optician thinks

Work, driving, etc glasses.

To see finer details for things far away, I need glasses, so for seeing things like text or the like... for anything close, don't need them...
A comparison for the finer detail thing would be playing a game designed for a HD display in SD... some text is harder to see and at times, impossible to read, and finer things like texture details become lost from a closer distance...

Though, my vision becomes near perfect in very low light conditions for some reason... :unsure:

I can attest to that.

I don't remember the exact number, but my right eye is pretty strong... my left eye, though, not so much. Luckily, they basically cancel each other, granting me with incredibly decent enough eyesight.
