I'm getting blind

No, not really.

Me and my mom were at SM awhile ago. She accompanied me to buy a new pair of eye glasses at Sarabia Optical.

 I was eyeing for a cheap pair since she'll be the one who'll pay but she insisted to go for the expensive (durability wise) When the opto/opta whoever doctor was that checked my grade vision, I got 375 for my left eye and 400 for the right. My grade has been stable for about three years now. I asked doc if it's already worst then he told me there's nothing to worry about.

I've been wearing contact lenses since Grade 5 (so that's about 11 years already) I decided to switch back to glasses cause migraine is disturbing me frequently and I think it's all because of my contact lenses. If only I could turn back time, I won't waste my time playing games on Play Station the whole day for it may be one of the reasons why I got near-sighted.

I need to deal with my near sightedness for the rest of my life. If ever I have enough money, I won't hesitate to undergo Lasik Surgery. I really want a 20/20 vision. It sucks to feel somehow blind especially during night time without wearing glasses or contact lenses.


  1. Ohh.that's sounds uncool. I mean your eyes problem. Good thing I still enjoy my 20/20 vision eventhough I read a lot using dim lamp shade. I guess, my being a veggie-eater esp. the yellow ones helped a lot in preserving my good vision. Just do take an extra care of your eyes, dalawa lang yan and it's precious of all the senses I guess :))

  2. Nakakalungkot lang na malabo mata ko. Pag wala akong glasses or contact lenses, automatic nagiging chinese ako eh :))

  3. Hahaha! So many of pinoys both young and old experience the same trouble with you. In Arabic, we call an expression as "What to do Yani" hahaha..meaning what else to do? or what can we do?

    Ingat nalang, that's the least I can advice. :))

  4. I'm also visually impaired. I've been wearing glasses since I was in grade 2. And now at the age of 20, I already have -4.00 (400) grade, nearsightedness din. But it's okay, we can deal with this until we have the money for Lasik Surgery na :)

  5. Hi Sumi! thanks for dropping by :) yeah, by the time we have money na, magpapa-Lasik talaga ako. Ang hirap sobra, everything is blurred na.
