None of the above.
I was born with cateracts (sp?). Everyone in my family is. I've had the lens in my left eye replaced with a synthetic one. My vision isnt terrible though. 20/40 in one eye, 20/60 in the other. But due to the operation, my left eye cannot change it's focus.

Edit: Heh, because of the differences between eyes, objects with really fine patterns appear to be flashing rapidly, which makes life interesting. Black lights also look very different from each eye.

I wear glasses (infrequently), so my vision isn't perfect; I tend to have trouble discerning stuff at a distance.

...uses Netscape to see this since it gives me a headache to look at it in Internet Explorer...

I HAVE glasses, but they broke on me several months ago. I used to wear them while driving, at work, and at school, but I get by without them.

My vision is alright. When I was younger I had a tumor in my eye, and I also had drops put in it many times. My vision is quite alright, though things in the distant are a bit blurry, which is a Big problem for me in school, I often use my friend's glasses to help aid my vision. I've went to an Optomitrist twice, once a year, and they said I had a slight blur in the back of my eyes which doesn't harshly need glasses but if I need so, would require them. I still don't have any glasses, for me or my family doesn't have enough to buy any at the momentm but I am doing alright with what I have.

Though I'd love to have Kakashi Contacts for my vision. :D

My vision would be a lot better if my eyes weren't so damn sensitive. I squint while walking in bright sun, etc... but other than that I'm fine. 20/40. Of course if I stay around this thread much longer that's likely to change. ¬_¬ *leaves*

A bit shortsighted, but I don't wear glasses all the time. I don't wear them under ski goggles, but it makes it a bit harder to read signs in the distance. Near sight is good - I can read very small text.

That reminds me about something kinda funny. My spare pair broke while I was cleaning them a while ago - a crack appeared in the frame without any particular force being applied. The opticians replaced them with another pair of the same design. A few months later, the same thing happened again, and I suggested to the opticians that the frame in question must have a design flaw. They seemed unconvinced, but got a replacement anyway. Just before the glasses were handed to me, the optician gave them a quick polish - and sure enough, they fell apart in her hands. :)

This thread makes my computer cry, but not as much as the inverted thread on another board.

Mozilla makes your eyes better, seriously, try it. It works, no kidding.

Holy jeez

I first saw this thread while using Mozilla, and I wondered what the hell everyone was talking about.
