[Volume 8 Issue 3, #1695]
上個週末嘅怡保美食(或者應該話係暴食比較恰當)之旅, 食物咗好多嘢..我由呱呱落地開始, 只不過有短短十年良好視線, 因為十一歲開始我就已經近視喇!! 一開始就已經係頗嚴重嘅200度近視, 名符其實嘅四眼仔一名呀, 第一日戴眼鏡返學仲嚇親好多同學仔添, 哈哈.. 就咁一直做四眼仔做咗成十年, 大學畢業後學人貪靚, 就開始戴隱形眼鏡到依家喇.. 期間近視度數不停上昇, 應該係中學畢業後先開始穩定, 而家我個度數係左眼650度, 右眼700度, 係一個大近視!! 其實都有諗過做雷射手術, 不過又擔心喎, 所以先遲遲未有行動.. 可能我細個時候太過勤力讀書, 而且唔食青菜又少吃魚, 所以先整壞對眼, 哈哈!! :D
the gastronomic (or rather more appropriately, gluttonous) Ipoh trip over last weekend got me eaten a lot of nice food.. after i came to this world, i only have ten years of good eyesight, because i was already shortsighted at eleven!! it was a rather severe 200 degree when it first started, i still remember i gave classmates a shock on my first day being a specky geek back then, haha.. so it goes, i was a specky for like ten years until i graduated from university, only then i started to have concern over my look and put on my contact lens till today.. within the years, the power kept increasing and it only stabilized after high school, now my left eye is 650-degree while my right eye is 700-degree, that could be a pseudo-blind huh?? i've actually thought of those laser treatment but then i am also worry at the same time, hence no action taken at all.. maybe i have been too hardworking when i was young, didn't like veggie and seldom eat fish, that might be why i spoiled my eyes, haha!! :D

    1. I never appreciated vege when I was young. However, I like fish and enjoyed fish dish daily until I entered university and forced to add variety into my diet.

      Fish is full with omega, so does this explain my short sighted is under 100 for both eyes?

    2. Cant afford fish when young. Having fish or chicken meat was a luxury.

      Mom tried to get me drink Scott emulsion but I beh tahan ghe the smell.

      Maybe that why my eyes sight so bad

  3. A colleague's son had laser surgery done and now has perfect or close to perfect vision. Like you, I'd probably stick to glasses too. I think the fear of the surgery going awry is a big deterrent. What's your 'excuse'?

    Good morning though we are missing sunshine this morning.

  4. Good morning, SK. I am also shortsighted person. I guess I started wearing glasses at ten years old. That time, I was so stupid. It wasn't severe at all. I should do without glasses until much later. But, I thought wearing glasses would make me look like smarter student. Gila right?

    1. So, since then, I was wearing glasses till I went into Uni. I wanted to look good earlier than you. You were after Uni, I was during Uni. Muahahaha! Meaning, I am more vain than you, SK.

      Delete
    2. Then, I wore contact lens since I was in Uni until now. I have glasses now. I just bought one last 2 weeks. The frame is made in Korea one. Even wearing specs can look good like K-Poh, my wish.

      My practise is wearing contact lens at day time, and wearing glass at night time.

      But, honestly I don't like to wear glasses. It made me feel dizzy.

      I am considering Lasik too.

    3. I was stupid to think that wearing glasses look smarter and secretly wished I can wear one too, during my schooling time. But now I wanna go without glasses because it makes me look nerdy. Vain pot, lol!

    4. Sigh... yannie so cham..if have nit start wear glasses then will be better. For me was that bad advice by the shop. Each time go sure say to add power though come to think of it now, dont really have to add power. Coz every time after add power I would be very dizzy a few days.

      But still yannie and Yvonne nit as bad as me la. Still can wear contact lens. I can't. Wedding also wore glasses.

      Yes friend's wife did lasik n she can see clearly now.

      But from what I read about lasik is that it can only reduce. Power as high as mine will still need to wear glasses after lasik

  6. Good Morning blind Mice. Oh I also wore glasses when i was 11 years old. I did not even know that I was short sighted but kept blaming the glare from windows that made the blackboard blurr. Idiot Anay lah.


    My power started around 200/150.

    1. My power started around 100/150, but now 650/150. I have lazy eyes. If you pay attention on my close shot pictures, you would see me one eye bigger than another eye. Actually, I don't like to say my eyes, one eye big, one eye small. But, it is.

      By the way, please tell me, which eye of mine is smaller? No gift for right answer.

      Delete
    2. Your right eye is BIGGER lah! Try to do the "10 mins Toothpick Exercise" to make the left muscles bigger lo.

      Delete
    3. Bingo, anay is pandai la! My left eye is 650 degree and my right eye is 150 degree.

      "10 mins Toothpick Exercise" work ah? I thought I need to cover my right eye and use only my left eye like Ninja.

  7. When I was 6 years old my parents took me to see their friend who was an optician and he told them that the shape of my eye ball muscles & cornea would be come shortsighted before I reach 12. Bingo! It happened!

  8. I wore contact lenses after high school when i played games but I found it so irritating having to wash so many things just to look good. I didn't give a damn lah even though I looked so fugly with glasses. I am not like Thambee who is so gaya dei! Muahahahaha.

    1. Anay, you are now safe from many contact lens side effect, germs and deceases from wearing contact lens.

      Delete
    2. Sorry ah...

      I know I shouldn't pretend to be a teacher here...

      But... decease : to die. Orang mati (with past tense) Deceases : the act of dying? xD
      Disease : sakit

      hehehe

    3. Sorry, thanks for letting me know. I want to mean disease, and not decease.

      Aiyoyo. Luckily I hire a tuition teacher for my girls.

  9. My sister went to get her lasik done about 8 years ago. now she still wears glasses when she drives the car. What the heck???


    She told me that in a few years time, she will get it done again as she is a BIMBO! She told me so many horror stories after the lasik surgeries being done on different people.
    Her friend had both eyes done in KL and could drive back to JB a few hours later on the same day! No complications!

    My sister had hers done in London but she was in pain for days and could not see properly for 2 monthssssssssssssss!!!!!! She went to shop for shoes and realized her eyes went dizzy looking at so many shoes on the rack. She went to see cheap shoes thrown inside the SALE box but she could not find 2 same pairs. She suffered that much but she said it was worth it. Well, that is all about BIMBOs ok.

  10. The power of my eyes are quite stable and hardly increase over the last 15 years. I guess it must be the carrot juice and beta carotene supplements that I take occasionally. I bought a pair of that dark glasses with holes that could heal problem eyes. YES it helped a lot but i didn't wear them daily. If I could wear them for half hour daily, I believe I could throw away my glasses like the thousands of testimonials.

    It is quite funny that when I wore the dark glasses and looked through the tiny holes, I could read newspaper or watch TV with my current power 500+. Wanna try it?

    1. I ordered a pair once... then dunno what happen to it. LOL

  11. Kids nowadays have more chances to lose their perfect eyesight due to computer, iPad, tablets and those game gadgets.

    The last thing I want to see is my girls wearing specs. I keep hammering to them the important of taking care of their eye sight.

    1. I told my son to take care of his eyes too.

      He needs to take good care if his eyes himself.

      We tell him, he'll have to fork out his own money to buy glasses if eyesight got worse. That makes him listen to us! LOL

  12. 呢篇真係九唔搭八,請問近視同你暴食之旅有乜關係呢?

    650/700的確幾深喔,不過眼睛好好地冇事冇幹,就無謂去做雷射。你驚日後冇機會做眼部手術咩?記住,仲有個白内障排緊隊囖!

  13. Good morning, SK and all! I wore glasses at the age of 13 due to too much tv when I was 12 years old. I wore till I went to college. That time I wore contact lens. But now, I hardly wear as my power is very slight. But I do wear when I drive as I want see the road clearer. :)

  14. I wore glasses when I was in Form 4. That time, power 150 only. Still can survive without wearing glasses also.

    Now, way above 600 already. No glasses meaning, cannot see. All become blurry. *sob sob*

  17. Hmm...I think I first started to put on glasses when I was 15?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Then again I have never thought of using contact lenses as I think glasses makes me more nerdy and soften my samseng look. LOL :D

  19. Perhaps you should try the laser treatment you know. I might try it too...one day. :p

    ReplyDelete
  30. P.S.
    I hated veggies when small - had to be forced to eat, rotan by the side...but we did eat fish a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Eating more vege is good. Sometimes eyesight related to your family history. Anyone of yours? Nowadays laser treatment is very common.

    I'm a specky when i was 13. Not far from you too. Gradually increased to 450.

    1. Every time go make new spec yhe lady sure say add 50 or 100. Till I associated going to make spec means increase power. Maybe should hv gone to other shop which would advise differently. Some good ones would help reduce yhe power

  33. NOw I have top 3 eye sight problems, Myopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia . So, my specs were quite costly.
