How People with Poor Eyesight See the World Without Their Glasses, as Demonstrated by Oil Paintings

Have you ever made fun of someone because they had contact lens or glasses? A few of us surely have at least joked about how nerdy someone looks with glasses. Well, as nerdy as it might look, it is something substantial in their lives. If you are reading this without the need for an external object, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Not all human beings are lucky enough to be born healthy or have 20/20 vision.

In order to show us how difficult it is for those who see the world with blurry vision, South African artist Philip Barlow, created a series of paintings. His oil paintings vividly depict the struggle of those with myopia or nearsightedness; which is the most common refractive error of the eyes. His work might appear as if an amateur photographer captured images out of focus but that is the harsh reality of people with bad eyesight and what they see every day when they remove their glasses.
