Pinhole glasses, also known as stenopeic glasses, are eyeglasses with a series of pinhole-sized perforations filling an opaque sheet of plastic in place of each lens. Similar to the workings of a pinhole camera, each perforation allows only a very narrow beam of light to enter the eye which reduces the size of the circle of confusion on the retina and increases depth of field. In eyes with refractive error, the result is claimed to be a clearer image. However, a second effect may appear at the common bridge between each two adjacent holes, whereby two different rays of light coming from the same object (but each passing through a different hole) are diffracted back toward the eye and onto different places on the retina. This leads to double vision (objects having doubled edges) around...

I have bad vision. Like, really bad vision. Whenever people say, “Oh, my eyes are so bad and I cannot see anything,” they almost always mean that their prescription is about a -4.0, maybe a -4.5. My left and right eyes’ prescriptions are -9.0 and -8.5, respectively. All I see without corrective lenses are shapeless color blobs. It’s certainly not a competition, but it has made me very jealous of people who can comfortably wear glasses without looking ridiculous. Having a high prescription and...
