Thread: Going blind, glasses or contacts?

  1. #1

    Going blind, glasses or contacts?

    I start having early signs of myopia. I have a cloudy vision and can't recognize people's faces from 20' away (sucks, can't check-out hotties). I have been taking Bilberry extract to see if that helps without any luck.

    I realize that at one-point-in-time I will require corrective lenses. I would like to wear glasses due to low-cost, low-maintenance and handling. The problem is that I have a high-bridge nose and it's discomforting.

    I am not very intrigued wearing eye contacts for various reasons (fragile, expensive, high maintenance, etc).

    For those blind folks, what do you recommend?

    Glasses are not cheap and definitely not low maintenance.

    Get a nose job. Then get contacts.

    Possible cataracts (not a big deal), or possible macular degeneration (is a big deal).

    Regardless a simple eye exam is the only way to determine what is best for you're situation.

    I use a combination of glasses and contacts depending on what activity.

    Then why not.

    While you can still see, look down and check if your palms are hairy.

    Try not to put a price on your vision if you can. I understand money is tight for some people now but the last thing I would ever want to lose on my body is my vision (and yes that includes my penis).

    Is lasik an option? I am not an expert, never even heard of myopia. But if it can help your condition I think that might be the best route. One time procedure with a quick recovery.

    **Edit** Turns out Lasik is a good option. Check below.

    Keep both eyes closed when fapping as a start. Problem should clear up within a week or two. :P















    I wear glasses because I can't deal with putting **** in my eyes.
