Eyeglasses and depth perception

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 1:23 pm

Well, I got my new eyeglasses today, with the prescription from my eye exam a couple weeks ago…

…and wow, they must’ve done something with the prescription, because everything suddenly looks three-dimensional. As I may or may not have commented before, it used to be that everything looked relatively flat– some depth, but not a great amount– but now things actually stand out noticeably from the background!

Even weirder… I was just taking my glasses off and putting them back on for comparison, and it’s unreal. Take them off, everything’s flat; put them on, things stand out from the background. Repeat ad infinitum.

Go figure, eh? I wonder what they did to the prescription…
