How good are your eyes?
October 5, 2008 10:13am CST
My eyes have been getting worse and worse because of staring at the computer screen for long periods of time. I searched online for some tests to check how sharp my eyes still are and I came across a few good tests. Most of them deal with colors and shades of colors to test your eye skills. My eyes are still sharp when it comes to colors. I tried out this test where you arrange a bunch of colored squares according to hue and I scored a 7 where 0 is the lowest possible score for my age. The higher the score, the worse you did. Here's a link to the test: http://www.placepictures.com/link/7e861235 What score did you get? Are your eyes as sharp as you think they are?

Unfortunately the sensors on my computer at work wouldn't let me view your eye test link and was looking forward to having a go but after always sitting too close to a tv set as a child growing up then spending far too long at work and home staring at my computer screen I know my eyes are pretty bad. Currently I wear contact lenses or glasses depending on the occasion to correct my vision. For the last ten or more years I have suffered with Myopia or short sightedness as most people know it as. Have got used to it now but on occasions it would be nice not to wake up and blindly hunt for where I left my glasses LOL. Becasue of this I am seriously looking into laser surgery.

I know that my eye site is not very good especially without my glasses on, however I didn't know it was that bad. I made your number seven look pretty darn good. I scored a 43. Did you post this on here just to gloat. You meanie you! I guess you better be grateful for what you have, and I better look into getting lasik eye surgery. Thanks for posting and happy mylotting.

my eyes are shorted sighted since i was in university, but now, they get worse and worse because of computer. i can't see anything clear, except the thing is very big enough. people who is short sighted like me, will ware a glass, but i don't. my eyes are big and bright, i think if i ware glass, my eyes will become urgly., and it's said, eyes will be aeroelastic if we ware glasses for long time. how dreadful. , i don't want to have glass. i'm planing to have a surgery for my shorted eyes in the end of this year.

I had bad eyesight before because I always read in the car or on the bus. And I read when there was poor light too. I even used my cellphone as light sometimes. Anyway, I finally took action and got lasik surgery a few months ago. It's actually great and painless most of the time. So now I am proud to say that I have perfect vision. :D
