    How good or bad is your vision? Do you have to wear glasses? What do they look like? Perhaps you prefer wear contacts? Would you ever consider Eye Surgery to get your vision fixed if needed? What are some difficulties you find everyday because of your vision?

    My vision is actually really sharp. Not only can I see things from a long distance, I can also read things when it's almost pitch black. I barely need any light to be able to see properly, which is pretty useful in quite a few cases. If I ever were to lose my sight, I would do everything to get it back. I don't think I could possibly live without my sight, it's much too important to me...

    I have 20/15 vision, so I don't need glasses or anything.

    My vision is godawful. I wear glasses. They're blue. I don't think I'd rather have contacts, though.

    My vision's pretty solid. I used to wear reading bifocals to stop the headaches I would get when I read for long periods of time, but I eventually stopped and I have no idea where my glasses are now. XD My sight is pretty sensitive to sunlight though, so I really like to have sunglasses handy whenever I go driving.

    I used to be pretty near sighted, couldn't see distance too well beyond about 20ft or so I think it was. Had to wear glasses for a good while until i got the laser eye surgery a few years ago. Instant results too, didn't hurt, and it got me to perfect vision.

    Luckily, my vision is good enough to not need glasses. However, I get headaches with certain things like fluorescent light or light from an overhead projector.

    I have awful vision, if I take of my glasses the world becomes a vague blur of colors. I love my glasses though, and I don't see myself getting contacts or eye surgery anytime soon, my glasses are too much of the way my face looks. when ever I see my self with out them, I think I look odd

    I definitely don't have perfect vision, but vision well enough were I don't need my glasses at all times. I have a bit of hard time seeing small font from the back of the classroom. Anything closer than that and I'm alright.

    Thankfully, my family wasn't cursed with poor vision, so my vision's pretty good: I can see everything crystal clear, which is good. Sadly, I was cursed with poor hearing, which probably means I'll end up going deaf in my later years. Sad, but true.

    Well, it just means I'd better make the most of music and such while I can! ^^

    My vision used to be perfect, but it wasn't until middle school that my eye sight started to decline. I wore glasses for a few months, but I eventually transitioned to contacts and have been using them for a while. It was strange using contacts at first, since they were a bit uncomfortable, but now I'm pretty much used to using them daily 24/7 except for when I'm sleeping of course. I still have pretty good near sighted vision, but my contacts help my weakened far sighted vision. Though even with my declining vision, I can surprisingly see pretty well in the dark. However, I can't stand super bright lights or anything that flashes repeatedly.

    Mine is pretty bad, but I swear I have Contrary as an ability, because every time I go in for an eye exam, my vision improves just a tad bit. For 99% of others, their vision worsens through time.
    Either way, I would never consider a correction surgery like LASIK unless I absolutely had to. We still don't know the long-term effects of these procedures.

    I do have some fake glasses, but they are just for occassions. M eyeset isn't too good and I can be expected to get glasses in the next few years. Sad :(

    My vision has been on a decline. I have glasses and it's for longer distances since I am a nearsighted person. I also use my glasses when I read or when I take notes down as I see better with them on.

    I also think I suffer from night blindness because I truly cannot see for a minute if it was bright to sudden darkness. It truly is troubling but I cannot really do anything about it except to increase my up take of vitamin A.

    My vision isn't the best. I have to put reliance into my glasses, and whilst not necessary all the time, they certainly help. I've noticed though that my vision seems to be declining slowly, bit by bit. without glasses, everything just looks fuzzy, and I get terrible depth perception.

    My vision is pretty much perfect but I cannot see things if they are too close or too far away.

    I need glasses, but the difference is so slight, sometimes I forget to put my glasses on.

    My visions isn't really bad or good. I don't need glasses constantly but I need them for computers, since I spend so much time on them;; Things close to my face or far away are too blurry to make out for me but at the right distance my eyesight is pretty solid
