I’ve just discovered a great technology that has enabled me to see things in the distance more clearly. While I’m usually quite up-to-date with technological trends and I love getting gadgets, for some reason I just never tried this out before. Recently I began wearing glasses. In case you’re not familiar with them, they’re quite ingenious and portable. My eyes can’t focus properly in the distance and the glass of the lenses is shaped in such a way to focus the light on my retina so items in the distance are in focus. When I read I don’t need them, so I can take them off. They arms even fold in to make them more portable, which is a nice touch.
The other neat thing about them is that there is a magnet in the metal between the lenses which lets me attach sunglasses to them without removing the glasses. So when it’s too bright out I just clip the sunglasses on and I’m set. It’s great to have them for driving.
I should have had glasses a few years ago, but for some reason I just didn’t think about it and now it’s painfully obvious that I needed the glasses. The world looks different to me now and I’m becoming accustomed to them. It was amazing when I looked up at the sky one night with my glasses on and saw the stars in the sky. I didn’t realize how much of a difference a simple (and non-electronic) technology could make in the way that I view the world. It also can partially explain my love for photography as it enabled me to see the world more clearly though a camera lens than I could with my own eyes.
