I guess the thing about olives is that when they're bad they're terrible, but when they're good they're incredible.

Don't you guys have kalamata olives on your pizzas? They're used as commonly as black olives here.

Sorry to hear about all of you having eye troubles. Both of my parents wear glasses, and for the longest time I thought I had a detachment of the vitreous, but it turns out that because of the way my eyeballs are shaped, I have an overly-sensitive retina that causes eye flashes and other strange symptoms, because there's nothing physically wrong with me. It's very distracting sometimes, but my vision is still quite good.

That's pretty interesting - the way your eyeballs are shaped? I had never really thought about something like that, but I'm glad it's not too distracting.

I'm afraid to say that I have no problems with my vision.

I always make a point of getting decent-sized glasses so that I have some peripheral vision. It's a shame those gigantic eighties glasses have long since stopped being stylish, really. I hate the narrow ones that are popular at the moment, since I just look straight over or under the top and can't focus on a damn thing. The glasses do more to help my astigmatism than actually get me to 6/6. They can't do contacts for me.

And I think I've said before, I find the idea of laser correction surgery utterly terrifying.

yeah it is a shame, in some ways, but they truly do look worse on a face. i did order some cute frames that i might wear a little more than my old ones, but they still are a small field of vision. even big ones i still can't see.

astigmatism really blows. it's hwat makes my right eye so bad. when i read without correction, not only do i do it with the book practically up against my face, i do it with my right eye closed cause of the seeing double thing.

The eye is slightly larger; a common issue with nearsighted people. Because it's larger, the retina is stretched further and is therefore more sensitive to touch. This is the only explanation they could come up with because there weren't any tears or detachments, and it keeps consistent with the fact that my vision distance-wise is weaker than up close.

Still won't be needing glasses for a good while though, if all goes well.

that is weird.

my nearsightedness is so bad that basically my eyes are super wide, and my retina is really stretched, so they have to monitor me for whatever tears that could cause.

but i don't really consider them troubles regularly. i just wear contacts and i'm fine. it does get a little iffy when it comes to sleeping somewhere unfamiliar, that's when i feel slightly disabled or whatever.

Interesting! Kalamatas are used almost exclusively at ritzier places here, always on gourmets. I like any good tasting olive but I think kalamatas are the best.
