Yah lor..... my eye sight is so bad now that I can also use the LCD screen. There should be a warning at the back of every camera that says " Photography is hazardous to your eyesight."

If you're using a Canon you should stick to Canon lens for your specs lah.

only my titanium frame is a Nikon. Just checked out the price for Nikon Hi-Index - about S$160 for a pair of 225 degrees lens.

a bit ex la. a pair of essilor cost S$100

TIP: switch to ur left eye lor.
joking.

Anyway I dont believe that shooting with ur right eye often will cause the eye sight to worsen.
I am a specky too.

There are many pro photographers shooting whose shooting experience is longer than my current Lifespan, and yet having perfect eye sight.

i know it don apply to all people.

just that i dread that 1 day, my left eye power is too much of a diff with my right.

and also, i rather spend the money on Camera lenses than my specs' lens. :)

just an OT...but related to eye health.

do anyone have 'floaters' that float around ur eyes? they are like squiggly strings that float in ur eyesight, know what i mean?

what are those? and are they an indication of bad eye health?

My dad had floaters in one of his eyes after his cataract-removal operation. Doc said nothing could be done about it and it would be a lifelong condition... just small particles floating in the fluid inside the eyeball... if you've just suddenly observed this, better go see an eye doc la, eyes don't play play...

His left eye is ok woh, he doesn't surf the net with only the right eye, right? yeah, prolonged time on net surfing can be detrimental to eye's health.

Actually, from what my optometrist said, your eyesight can get worse from using a camera too much. This is because when you look through the viewfinder, some people actually strain their eyes to look at the image inside. If you don't allow some rest at appropriate times, your eyes will get blurry from over-straining sometimes.

Interesting thread

Since it is related to photography, I moved it to General, Reviews, Tech Talk


I have no issue for my eyesights while photographing. When my eyes feel tired, usually I will open 2 eyes to look thru the viewfinder. Just like firing M16 :D

yes, i have them too. checked with SNEC recently thru polyclinic first. after examination, the advice given to me was that, generally speaking, floaters by themselves are harmless. however, if there is a sudden deteroriation or substantial increase, make an appointment with an eye doctor asap.

Just image how much flashing those who are on stage are receiving and they got to open their eyes. If we are near, we got to be considerate and use bounce instead of direct powerful flash. some photogs use big fat powerful flash!

What about those who shoot GPMG style and got a few hundred shots each time and shooting RAW even - end up spending hours in post-processing if not days to do it. :bigeyes: :bsmilie:

Yes... i think there is some effects...

My right eye sees everything warmer and my left eye sees everything cooler. Maybe try with a zoom lens on your left and right eye and see if you have this syndrome too.....
:)

Currently, I am switching between the 2 eyes... ;p
