Would it be safe to say that the majority of posters on this forum wear glasses?
In Germany around 66% of people wear glasses, around 43% constantly, the rest wear leisure or reading glasses.Would it be safe to say that the majority of posters on this forum wear glasses?
John, well generally eyesight like Wedgetails applies ! I don't think I did my eyesight any favours by fanatically reading 'The Three Invesigators' series by dim bedside light, late into the night when younger ..... pretty sure it was Uni that finally wrecked it - I ended up making Mr Magoo look like he had 20/20 vision !Another penalty of cultural assimilation?
And I thought you all had eyesight like Wedgetails .
Oh yes - religiously !The other question would be: how many of this majority would keep their glasses on while using their binoculars (I don‘t)?
Chosun,Just as well I've got the Eagle Eye Vision that counts though 😊
Yes, binocular choices are much less now . I do miss all of the choices before wearing eyeglasses. If no glasses I would have kept my little 7x21 Olympus reverse porro and my Zeiss Jenoptem 8x30 porro. I'd probably have a Leica Ultravid HD+ 8x32. I'm happy with what I have now, but it takes more time and effort to find the right binocular these days.I wear progressive glasses that correct for astigmatism so if I want a clear view I must wear them , especially for astronomy use .
Having to wear glasses changed a lot with binocular choices . I sold both my Nikon E2's because I couldn't get comfortable with them while wearing glasses , I tried and tried to no avail . Replaced the E2's with an 8x42 Nikon MHG .
John, I certainly see some weird and wonderful things - things beyond belief - one day when the world is more ready, I may tell .....Chosun,
After remarks about colour casts in various bins and your previous job on another thread, could it be that you have a fourth colour receptor?
That and apochromatic eagle eyes would be the ideal of most here!
I don't wear glasses. But I still read the above mentioned series by dim bedside light. I have just finished "The mystery of the murmuring mummy" (German translation) which I had not read for more than 30 years....
