    I am nearsighted and blind as a bat :p

    Actually, only from my right eye. My left eye is myopic too, but to a significantly smaller degree.

    I have myopia from sitting too much by computers when I was younger. Virtually no-one in my extended family has myopia. And as soon as my sight got a little bad I got glasses which just makes it worse since the eyes don't bother trying to adapt then.

    I wear both, contacts mostly though. Both are just a pain in the neck. My eyes get worse every year. I'd rather just be blind now if the trend keeps up than spend thousands in glasses and contacts for decades.

    I wear glasses and have a strong perscription. Even if I had corrective surgery I would still need glasses. I have needed them since fourth grade and they have gotten wore over time. I wore contacts for a while as a teenager but hated putting things under my eyelids.

    I trained myself to pay lots of attention to my peripheral vision for movement even though it is blurry. I don't drive much so it is not a problem.

    My mother has a similar but less extreme perscription. I just hope that my kids get my husbands(20/20) vision instead of mine.

    Without glasses I can only figure out colours and whether it is night or day. There is also a very strong genetical predisposition that I may end up blind in a couple years time.

    As I am also a scholar I always sleep with my glasses on and often wake up with printer's ink all over my face.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    I only need glasses to see fine print. Most of the time I never bother wearing them.

    I have to wear contact lenses because I have keratoconus. Eventually I might have to have corneal transplant surgery. With my lenses on I see almost perfectly fine, but without them, I'm legally blind, everything is just a blur. The disease is progressive until either it stops or surgery is performed. The sad thing is I had perfect 20/20 vision without any contacts or glasses just three years ago...
