    This is really interesting. I just skimmed throught it, but I’m going to come back again and really study this.

    You know, artists have all different eyesight, I for example and really nearsighted and have astigmatism in one eye, that has always made things difficult for me, even with corrective lenses. I often use a magnifying glass to check small details. Come to my site, I’ve done some cool stuff. One is a very funny cartoon. You’ll laugh, I promise. The other is funny, too, it’s an illustration from a movie. I put the video on pause to draw it.

    The point I was going to make about artists was, because different artists have different eyesight, it affects their work, the kind of colors they use, styles they prefer, etc., I think so anyway. It has taken me forever to get any real grasp of this subject, but I am getting such a kick out of it. To have an idea and do it, instead of knowing, oh, what a great idea, too bad I can’t draw well enough to really do it. The joys of middle age. Never too young or too old to go after something.

      I have astigmatism on both eyes, but I have no idea how it effects my sight :S

        “Blurred vision, ‘ghosting’ or images that are doubled are the most common symptoms of astigmatism”. — found that online. While it is correctable, for me, anyway, I miss details that other people can see.

        Even with lenses, I don’t see quite 20/20.

        Astigmatism itself, just means an irregularly shaped eyeball, more football than oval.

    Who knew how much we can’t see. I’d like to have binocular vision. It would be interesting to “see” energy, I guess that’s what acid is for.
