Artist Shows What It’s Like To Be Nearsighted In 29 Paintings

Published 1 week ago

If you’ve never needed glasses in your life, then you probably don’t even realize how nearsighted people see the world. A South African artist named Philip Barlow has created a series of hyperrealistic paintings showing how myopic (nearsighted) people see everything around them without glasses.

You can barely make out the shapes in the paintings at first glance, and everything looks blurry. But every nearsighted person will agree that’s what the world is like when you take off your glasses. Check out Philip’s paintings in the gallery below and what it’s like to be nearsighted for yourself.
