A bit blurry...



I'm about as blind as a bat without my glasses. I can make out objects, but they are very blurry. Damn astigmatism!

My mom realized that I, at the age of 3, needed glass when she saw me with my face about an inch away from JCPenny's Christmas catalog...

Clever illustration. I've found lately that things are blurry even WITH my glasses, and that some things now are not without them.

That's fun. I kind of wish it said something where it is clear, but it is still pretty cool without

What a great illustration for the concept! I'm blind without my glasses.

Great idea!

Is there a message in there? I see "I have seven" and then I can't make out anything else.

Hey Nicole!

Actually, the sign says "I have severe astigmatism" over and over again...

Michael: Very clever. (And perhaps a signal that I need to get my eyes checked too!)

I feel your pain, although I have a less severe astigmatism.

Nice concept and execution.

I preferred to put on glasses than the contact lens. Too lazy! I like your drawing, simple and neat idea!

I had a similar idea! I too started wearing glasses at a very young age.
