Glasses Minification

In Response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

For non glasses wearer, or even those with low myopia, it might be hard to understand that minus glasses minify everything. It makes everything smaller. The higher the prescription is, the higher minification effect of the glasses. Each diopter approximately minify 2% of the world. So, with my current prescription, I see the world 24% smaller.

The image below demonstrate the minification effect when looking to computer screen through my glasses. The bottom part is how I see computer screen through my glasses. While everything is clear, it is smaller. It is still better though than the blurred image on the top.

Fortunately, contact lenses don’t minify things, because it sticks to your eyes. This explain why I love to wear contact lenses instead of glasses, in addition to comfort.
