I'm Dexter Marcaida, 19 years old from Philippines, i want to share with you my experience of having myopia.
What is myopia?
Myopia (Nearsightedness) is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.
My eyesight started to blur when I was fourth year high school at the age of 16 and because of that I had a hard time keeping up with the class because I was sitting in the back, so whenever we needed to write I had to come over and photograph our lecture.
As time goes on my vision becomes increasingly blurred until there was a pandemic and education was online and and I am afraid to study in the coming school year because my vision may be further blurred but I have no choice but to study in the 2020-2021 (1st year college) school year because I don’t want to be left behind.
Since the first day of our class I have often had headaches because our class lasts five to eight hours plus we do more projects and assignments.
My vision soon became more blurred and as a result many things changed in my daily life just like, I can no longer read well when two meters away and when I travel I also have difficulty reading the sign on the buses.
I asked the EO (Executive Optical) Clinic how much the glasses cost and the cost was from $ 30 - $ 50 their Graded anti -radiation glass
I want to be a working student to buy glasses but due to the pandemic it is difficult to find a job especially since I am still studying and have no work experience.
So maybe here at read.cash will help me to buy eyeglasses.
All I can advise you is to take care of your eyes because it is very important in our daily lives.
You will always remember "repentance is late" so take care of your eyesight and see a doctor early to prevent Myopia (Nearsightedness).
