I finally went to the optometrist on Friday to have my eyes checked (I knew that I needed glasses, but made do without them). Transpires that my left eye is not that bad (nearly normal vision), but that my right eye is short-sighted and has an astigmatism. So, yesterday afternoon I collected my new glasses – and now the world is skew ! Well, I see much clearer now, but everything has strange angles – my laptop screen looks more like a trapezium (trapezoid) than a rectangle, and the steps slope to one side, and glasses set on the table suddenly are tilted. But that’s my brain playing tricks on me! It still corrects for the astigmatism that is now corrected by the glasses. Let’s see how long it will take for my brain to accept this “new reality”.
I have not noted a difference when knitting, though 😉
