Hello, my name is Dave I'm 21 and I just found out I'm longsighted.

I always thought my eyesight was perfect, it turns out I have been forcing my eyes to focus on things close to me when they cannot do it normally, leading to a whole lot of migrains and headaches, so this whole thing has come as a surprise to me 21 years of not looking at things the right way.

It might be a little hard to explain but here is what happened, after the doctor told me my eyesight was bad there was a few things going through my head and now that I have had some time to think about it here was my major concerns.

How effective will they be?

Will the entire world I have seen all my life be really that much different? Will people look different? Have I had trouble reading up till now without noticing a problem? So many different things really, over the past few years since gaming has become that much more apart of my life (thanks to ModDB) I get fatigued playing games, will having glasses fix that?

When I told my mother about what happened he first response was "Why didn't you let us know you couldn't see well?" Well how would I have known? To me it was normal.

What I am most worried about is how this will change the things I remembered, would have my girlfriends looked different? Would have I been better at sports? It worries me as I have already lived a sizable chunk of my life and having been like this from birth I kinda wish that it was picked up earlier as it could have changed a lot of things like how well I did in school.

Knowing what I do, what has changed for me now?

Since I found out what I was doing to self correct my eyesight problem (flexing my eye mussles so that to focuses on things closer to my face, try it yourself and see what I mean I have been doing that for 21 years) its become apparent that my eyesight is hopeless its like I'm surrounded by a ball of grease everything in between 3-7 foot around me is hazy now I just never noticed before.

Lets hope this just isn't me over thinking this but if the glasses don't fix that I will be stuck with that feeling, that sucks.

I have yet to get my glasses yet, but I am not looking forward to how it might change things, if it makes my life easier the past 21 years will be hard to look back on, if it does not change much at all I will be stuck with what I deem to be crappy eyesight that I thought was once really good.

All up this sucks.

Yep I moan about it, though contacts seem like a whole hassle and the lazer beams seem expensive and painful.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I'm sure everything will turn out okay.

It isn't as bad as I made it out to be, just worried it would be TOTALLY different, but its really not.

good luck with your glasses, they fix everything!

I consider myself lucky since I got perfect eyesight. No glasses, no trouble looking for the bathroom.
