An eye doctor shows how a nearsighted person sees the world, in the first personSep 232020
An ophthalmologist reproduced through a special lens the degree of blurred vision caused by the refractive error in the human eye.
A video that shows in the first person how those who suffer from myopia see without glasses or contact lenses have gone viral on the Internet, with 2.5 million reproductions.
The images, published last Saturday by an ophthalmologist under the username Dr. Glaucomflecken on Twitter, reproduce with the help of a special lens the refractive error present in the eye of a nearsighted person.

In them you can see how near vision worsens as the diopters increase between -2 and -12, from a slight loss of sharpness until everything around is completely blurred.
