I honestly have no idea... I wear glasses but most of the time I don't wear them around the house. I mostly just wear them when i'm driving or some place our out and about and need to see farther away. So i guess i'll take a guess here...

i'm not sure exactly, but mine's 20/400
as opposed to 20/20
they had to special-order my contact lenses because they didn't have any in stock.
the same thing when i tried joining the navy. I never got those ugly navy-issued mandatory BC glasses because they didn't have any for eyes as bad as mine :lol: .
& when i got discharged for having AS 1 month into the basic training (boot camp), they'd still not managed to find me anything suitable :P

I think I made a mistake. I picked the first one, but I think I might actually fall under the second category. Is 1.75 bad? I wear glasses, but can also go without glasses. I am either 1.75 or 0.75 (I think 1.75 though)

Mine's unusually bad too, -6.00 in both eyes. I think it must be some sort of disorder, cos I've known people who have had their eyes fixed on the computer for hours at a time and yet still have near-perfect vision.

I honestly do not know, but when I had my last eye checkup 3-4 years ago, my Dr. said my really bad one is about 20/800, and my other is about 20/600. If I did not pay extra to have the technology where they made thinner, my glasses would be ridiculously thick. Since then though, my eyes have gotten worse. I need new glasses. Now, if I could just afford the Dr.'s appointment and the new glasses themselves!

I'm 20/20.

I wore glasses during a brief part of my HS years just to fit in.

Now, I still have a problem with blurry vision.
