How People With Bad Eyesight See The World When They Take Off Their Glasses

posted by Pedro Bartes - 

This is fascinating to me, because I don't wear glasses, but I know I'm about to. But my wife and everybody in my family wears glasses. SO I always ask them, how do you see the world, when you're not wearing glasses, and they try to explain to me, but it is hard to imagine. Thanks to Philip Barlow, a Cape Town-based artist, you can now have an idea.. 

He has created a series of paintings that vividly shows the struggle of those who have myopia or nearsightedness, the most common refractive error of the eye. 

Ok I would like now if those who wear glasses can tell me if this is the way they see the world...
