Those of you blessed with perfect vision are likely to recognize this image as that chart you may have had to look at once or twice in Elementary school.
Those of you who’ve been wearing corrective lenses since being pulled out of Mrs. Bennett’s third grade classroom because you couldn’t see the board, on the other hand, have a much more lasting and ongoing relationship with today’s subject.
I’ve been having a bit more difficulty reading my iPhone screen lately (it’s the screen size, I tell you). Similarly I find myself squinting at my camera’s LCD more often than I’d like. So this morning I went in to visit my old nemesis once again and get an updated prescription.
And for those of you lucky ones with perfect vision, today’s image isn’t actually out of focus. That’s what it looks like for those of us with glasses. Heck, who am I kidding, that’s what it looked like twenty years ago. Today I can barely make out the “E” without my lenses!
