About a decade ago I had the lasik process performed - I was nearsighted with one eye 20:600 and the other 20:650 and had been wearing glasses since it was discovered I couldn't see much in the sixth grade. This was also complicated by astigmatism and mild color blindness (close pastels with similar color values). The lasik process took about 30 seconds on each eye and I walked out being able to see - corrected to 20:20 (and possibly a tad better in one eye). No pain to speak of - I didn't even need aspirin, YMMV. Originally it was set up as 'mono-vision' - one eye for reading and one eye for distance; but I got a touch up to give me good distance in both eyes and just use reading glasses if I need close work (only using 1.5s). While the process enabled me to see well and eliminated both my nearsightedness and my astigmatism, it did nothing to improve my color perception.
I have also been considering mounting a sealed high beam and a webcam in a waterproof enclosure and mount them on my bows to give me vision forward and down on my catamaran
. I expect to anchor
in relatively shallow water
and the water
here is usually very clear - hopefully this will enable me to see my anchor along with a variety of fish
and other creatures. It might not work, but seems cheap
to try - once I get some experience with the boat.
