I wanted to test out reading off of my iPhone and boy was I disappointed to find the Sookie Stackhouse books aren’t available through Apple’s iBook app. (If I’m wrong – please correct me but I searched the iBook library high and low).
I thought reading off my iPhone would be hard – I figured the small text and small screen would not make it enjoyable.
Turns out it was hard to read…but not for the reason I thought.
While I had a niggling feeling for a while that I needed to get my eyes checked, reading off my iPhone made me realize there is something seriously wonky with my eyesight.
Glasses on: words on iPhone screen swim and eyes hurt from effort.
Glasses off: words no longer do synchronized dance routine and eyes can read just fine.
Quick visit to the optometrist revealed my eye sight has improved since the last time I had my eyes checked (two years ago à la Sookie reading).
As in my eyes don’t need such strong lenses to see the world.
That’s why reading off my iPhone was so hard. Ha!
The bad news?
My optometrist told me that sometimes – as people age – their eye sight improves, but it’s an indicator they will eventually need bifocals.
So my eye sight is getting better before it gets worse. Where’s the justice?
p.s.: @hotelqueen told me on Twitter that her eye sight improved after each pregnancy and that I should just have another baby. 😉
