My eyes suck...

:iconshantella:

I'm beginning to realize that I cannot read street signs until it's almost too late to turn the car! I want to re-start my driving lessons (which were put on hold until I was finished school), but I'm scared if my vision is bad I may get into an accident. I mean, I can see other cars okay and know by the shape/colour of signs what they mean. I just can't read those little residential street signs.

The problem is I'm poor. I just graduated college and now I'm job hunting and my glasses cost $400+ at least. I mean, I could put it on my credit card and pay it off when I have money... but I owe so much in student loans as it is and I don't want to add more to my debt. And I'm beginning to get those eye strain headaches. I saw Wreck it Ralph last night in 3D (good movie, actually) and I need to take my glasses off to see the screen properly (plus trying to put those 3D glasses on my face when I'm already wearing glasses is a pain). It takes my eyes several minutes to adjust to not wearing them because I have to wear bifocals. Yes I'm 25 and need bifocals! Thankfully they're no-line... but still!

tl;dr: I'm poor and blind! :icondealwithitplz:

I kinda know how you feel, without glasses my vision it at over 240 in both eyes or something...

I just actually have glasses, so it doesn't really matter. :( Good luck with yours.

Do a research study. You can make tones of money that way.

I've actually thought about that... I've heard there's even a place to do product testing and food taste tests near my home.

If there are food tests that sounds even more fun. :)

Sucks for you Niki. I wear the 3d glasses over my regular glasses when I see those movies.

I find I can't do that due to bifocals. :I Though it depends on where I'm sitting. I tend to sit around the middle of the theater but I still end up looking out of the wrong part of my glasses sometimes.

The screen's big enough for me to see what's going on anyways. My eyes aren't THAT bad... yet.

Then don't look out the wrong part.... it's just that simple. I dunno you do need bifocals so they are horrible....

There are websites where you can get prescription glasses for far cheaper than $400. Try searching online; unless you want designer frames or have some really incredibly weird prescription that nobody can make, you should be able to get a pair for far less.

Eh, I can't see anything clearly unless it's 10cm in front of my face. Things can be pretty bad, but at least one can still see. :hmm:

I'm not actually driving now. I'm discovering this as a passenger.

Oh sorry, I didn't get that from what you wrote. But I say your vision is important, so get those new glasses and worry about student loans later. I mean, you'll be paying that stuff off until you're 45 anyway.

Er. Legally you really should not be driving if that's how bad your eye sight is -- Did they not test you when you got your permit?

They did test me, and it's on my license that I must be wearing glasses/contacts when driving. But this was over a year ago. I have not driven a car in a long time either.

I've let my instructor know and I'm not going to drive until I update my prescription.

I wore the same prescription for years and had a similar problem with street signs. Fortunately managed to update my prescription for cheap and can drive safely now. Seriously, though, I could barely read the big E at the top of the test chart.

It's only $100 to see the eye doctor, it's just much more for me to actually buy the glasses.

And I feel I need my bifocals to drive so my eyes aren't adjusting every time I look at the dashboard.

Yeah, I was on my mom's insurance for one month, so my test was free and my contacts were like, $50
