Okay this is pretty weird.
I'm near sighted and was diagnosed with astigmatism.
At first, when I got my glasses years ago, I would only wear them occasionally as there wasn't a huge difference in clarity, at least at the time.
I started using my eye glasses more and more, and I guess my eyes finally got used to it, so when I removed them my vision would go super blurry.
I stopped wearing my glasses about 2 weeks ago, because I got tired of cleaning them, hoping that my pre prescription vision would come back as my eyes got used to the way light comes into my eyes again.
So anyway, today is a lot better than 2 weeks ago, but not quite to how it used to be before I started wearing glasses. Right now I'm on my living room, trying to watch my 55' TV which is about 12 -15 feet away. I watch Netflix with subtitles and noticed that the subtitles are still a bit hard to read, I need to squint really hard.
And here's where my discovery happened. I'm getting sleepy so I go to rub my eyes, but suddenly I notice something crazy. Whenever my finger blocks light near the top of my eye, I can read the subtitles no problem, in fact, the whole image goes looks as if I had glasses on again.
So here I am, watching TV out of these little hole binoculars I'm making with my fingers, and can't believe how this is somehow making my vision super sharp.
Is there a name for this that I can Google? Is my hand blocking light coming from an angle that causes my astigmatism to blur my vision?
