Optical nonsense

My eyes make no sense. My glasses broke a few weeks ago and I glued the bridge back together. They broke again last weekend and the plastic just won’t take being glued again- it turns to powder!

It occurs to me I shouldn’t have had the same pair for over 10 years, right?

So for now I’ve just been dealing with the weird behavior of my distance vision and realizing how little sense it makes.

Things get blurry from about six feet out… but what happens from there is pure fnord.

I can read larger text on the interstate highway signs just fine and some residential street signs. However, some just blur out and the chances of it being legible don’t really even correlate to the font face, size, or colors. Sometimes I’ll even get to watch a blurry one snap into sharp focus after a second.

This is really fun during an eye exam when the results of testing will contradict themselves seconds later.

Meanwhile, I can perfectly see a little 100 foot tower that’s like ten miles away and up a 6000 foot mountain.

What even are eyes? They make less sense then the thorium oxide doped glass in old Pentax lenses.
