~* The Blur World *~

By: confusedsoul Posted Jun 03, 2013 Direct Dil Se 727 Views

According to me, of all the senses God has blessed us with, eyes are the most precious. Today I am not sharing the plight of the blind rather I'm trying to share the experience of watching the world through the eyes of the people whose vision isn't normal.

Well, the word normal can mean different things to different people, so I will try and be specific. It's about the vision problem. If you wear glasses, you will be able to relate with my experience and if your vision is flawless, you will get an understanding of the Blur World.

As a kid, I was always fond of wearing glasses though technically my vision was 0 (size zero? :P). After repeatedly wearing every other person's spectacles, I actually spoiled my crystal clear vision.

I now entered the Blur World. Slowly, steadily things and people around weren't the same. Everything was - BLUR. After I complained the same, my mother took me to the doctor. As expected, I was asked to wear glasses and eat leafy vegetables.

I was the happiest person on Earth. "I no longer have to borrow anyone's glasses!" - that was my initial thought. As days went by, I developed a dislike for this burden on my nose. I felt irritation and soon my love for the glasses disappeared. I avoided wearing them and felt lost in the Blur World.

Everything around me was Blur. I was too young to opt for lenses, so I stopped wearing the glasses whenever I can. My tuition class was one such lucky place as my tutor used to sit right in front of me. No need to look at the black board and so I had the choice to enter the Blur World Confidently. After one of my tuition classes, I was waiting for my dad. Unfortunately my vision was too weak to recognize him from about 15 feet distance.

I saw a man near the lane and I wasn't sure if he was my father! I started walking towards him, ignoring him and stood a step ahead and turned. To my surprise it was my father..! What a relief it was ! Later when I shared this with my father, I was scolded for experimenting! After which I had no other go but to wear the glasses!

Since then till I was 17, I religiously wore my glasses. After which I got an option of wearing the lenses. That came as a relief but at it's own cost. The people who wear lenses might understand what I mean. Wearing lenses in a rush always leads to a problem and sometimes the lens takes its sweet time to settle on the cornea.

And now after almost 10 years of patiently wearing the lenses, I have deiced to go for LASIK surgery. After meeting the doctor and going through the initial tests last Saturday, everything seems to be rather clear (clear already? :P). I hope it works well for me.

Do pray that I am out of the Blur World soon!
