Of course I don’t want to be known as the Blogger with eyesight problem but that’s what I really am. It just dawned to me how poor my eyesight is upon realizing that more than half of my kids (3 out of 5) are wearing eyeglasses. I am hoping my only girl would not suffer the same fate.
Blogger With Eyesight Problem
My eyesight problem is something that is embedded in my genes. I wished for a skinny pair of genes but what I got is squinty pair of eye genes 😛 But my eyesight problem was discovered late and it was already worst for my age. If I remember correctly, I was 8 and my eye grade was 300+ already.
And all along back then, I thought my eyesight was normal. It was only through the observation of my teacher that we discovered that I have a poor eyesight. Tsk Tsk
My eyesight problem did not progressed as worst as I imagined when I was younger but it did get worse. Now, aside from myopia (now reads -5.0), I am also suffering from astigmatism.
The best lens for a Blogger With Eyesight Problem
Prescription eyeglasses can be very expensive with my eye grade. Buti na lang, eyeglasses frames are very cheap in Quiapo. When it comes the best lens for a Blogger With Eyesight Problem, late ko lang na realized that I need a specific lens and not just the ordinary ones that can be bought in Quiapo Optical Shops.
Right now, I am using Essilor Crizal Prevencia, not that cheap, but hello, my eyes are not cheap din naman. Sana tama ang tanda ko but for my eye grade, the rate is 10K for the lens.
Why do I need a lens that expensive? Eh kase nga mahal ko ang mata ko. And I need that sa aking blogging career. Hello paano ako susulat without my eyes no.
Essilor Crizal Prevencia lens is the perfect lens for me because I am always exposed to computer and mobile phone. These kinds of gadgets emit blue light which can do great damage to our eyes. Ayan kase kaka computer. Eh hindi naman maiiwasan kung blogger ka di ba. Crizal Prevencia has blue light filter and UV rays and aims to protect the eyes from harmful light everyday. Scratch proof pa! Ask your optical shop about Crizal Prevencia ha
How about LASIK? considering pero if ever I would still use a lens with blue light filter para protected pa din ang eyes ko. But first, I will apply muna for a PWD kase pwede daw pag mataas ang grado ng salamin mo. Babalitaan ko kayo!
All my kids are also wearing Essilor Crizal Prevencia lens for protection.
As for the usual questions, “Nakakakita ka ba pag wala kang salamin?” Ewan ko sa inyo! Pero mahirap mag make up! haha
