The world is a very beautiful place and many people will spend their lives trying to discover as much of the world as possible. We will go to faraway places because we are enticed to do so with pictures we see and promises of beauty. When we get there, we marvel at everything that is in front of us and we will take pictures to record those moments. There are times, however, that we forget that people don’t always see the world in the same way.
The images that you see below are from a Cape Town artist, Philip Barlow. When you first look at his paintings, you might think that they are some type of modern art or that they resemble photographs that are not quite in focus. In reality, it is a depiction of what individuals who are nearsighted see when they are not wearing any type of corrective lenses. For some people, seeing these images is a very eye-opening experience.
If you have perfect vision, you might be surprised that people actually see the world in this way. If you are nearsighted, you will fully understand what is in front of you. Fortunately, we do have corrective lenses that can clear up most of the blurriness for those who suffer from nearsightedness, also known as myopia. It will give you a clearer picture of what those individuals have to go through every day.
