Vision Simulator

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be short-sighted, this vision simulator helps to give some of the answers.

Short-sightedness, or 'myopia', typically starts in childhood and usually requires spectacles or contact lenses to see clearly e.g. to see detail on the whiteboard in a classroom, text on a T.V.

As a child grows throughout the school years, short-sighted children may experience an associated increase in their short-sightedness resulting in a greater reliance on spectacles. With this change, the strength of the glasses prescription also increases along with the thickness of the spectacle lenses.
