So neither eye is actually good lol. Now I have glasses though that have progressive focus lens. So if I was looking down at my phone, it'd be clear. If I was to look up to drive, it'd be clear. The two ends of the spectrum are gradually brought together from top to bottom of the lens.

It actually wasn't hard though to see with the mono-focal vision though. I was afraid that I'd never be able to see 3-D movies again though since one eye would always be blurry, but the brain handles it all very well.

Jeez I guess if you're fearless enough to walk around with 3x vision all day then this would be kind of cool.

Now please, don't approach me from the side.

Without the glasses, you don't see the zoom as anything more than a slight ghosting over your vision. The pictures illustrate this.

I'd rather have telescopic glasses.
I can't wear contact lenses for some reason, they cause my eyes to instantly go red and become extremely irritated. I've tried so many different brands too at the opticians frown.gif
Plus that with telescopic glasses you can take them off when you need to
