I've finally received my first pair of glasses, a new experience for me. For the last couple of years my vision has been becoming a little worse; slowly and under the radar. Eventually it got so bad I had to have my eyes checked. Turns out I am near-sighted, I can see close distances just fine but anything far away will require strain.
Now I am wearing glasses and learning to adjust. I can see things much clearer than I expected and I'm amazed how poor my eyesight really was. Hopefully I won't destroy them soon, I would hate to see the look on my dad's face if the fame or glass has been broken.
