Contact Lenses

My vision is not that great and I didn’t know it until a few years ago. My hubby and I were talking about something that was on a sign not far away and he realized that I couldn’t read it when I should have been able to. He told me that I should get glasses and try contact lenses. When I put on my first pair of glasses I couldn’t believe the difference that it made. I just thought that the way I saw things was the same as what most people saw. Up until then I did not know too much about vision and the way my eyes work.

I recently found a website, Lenstore.co.uk that gives you many eye facts that are not commonly known. For example, this chart is published on their website talking about eye color and other things like what it means to have 20/20 vision. The fact that I found really interesting was number 5. It says that if you wore glasses that flip the image upside down that your brain would correct for it in just a few days. I find that really amazing.
