How to tell you are short-sighted?

July 21, 2011 by Galvin Tan in Health with 1 Comment

Many people can’t tell when they are suffering from shortsightedness. So I found this cool little trick to check whether you are shortsighted or having a normal vision.

How to Test Shortsightedness:

Normal vision people will see Einstein in the picture.

Short-sighted people will see Marilyn Monroe

If you see Einstein in the picture, walk back a few metres and you’ll see it into Marilyn Monroe.


According to Wikipedia:

Myopia is a refractive defect of the eye in which collimated light produces image focus in front of the retina when accommodation is relaxed. In simpler terms, myopia is a condition of the eye where the light that comes in does not directly focus on the retina which is in the back of the eye. Because of this, the image that one sees is out of focus when looking at a distant object but comes into focus when looking at a close object. [read more]

Luckily I still have a pretty normal vision but this test is so cool it is worth a post here on my blog.
