    I'm genuinely sick of hearing about how great of a movie It Follows is. It is the most overhyped waste of time ever committed to film.

    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    how bad are -1.50 eyes...???

    Anything under -3 is low myopia. From what I've read, starting at -2 you should routinely wear glasses or contact lenses. -6 and over is high myopia (about 30% of all myopics have high myopia).

    So you have mild myopia and might or might not have to wear glasses because of that.

    For your information, my eyes are at -7.45 and -8. Try waking up with that kind of eyesight in the morning and search for your glasses by feeling the nighttable because you can't see them!

    Because constantly focussing on the close range (book, cellphone, computer) contributes to myopia, which you seem to have. When you are walking around outdoors, you focus in the long distance, which could slightly help with your myopia.

    Also, the vitamin D you get from walking about in the sun seems to outweigh the risk of skin cancer. Add to that the benefits of excercise and fresh air and it's a clear decision in favor of getting out more.

    Well the optometrist said my eyes are not very good, but I can see relatively fine without glasses.

    things from far away are only a little blurry, but that's only fine details

    Your eyes are fine. You are nowhere close to being classified as being blind. At -1.5, I bet computer screens are in perfect focus for you, and it's just the distance vision that lags. Am I right?
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Yes. Well sort of.

    I am sitting am arms length away from my large computer screen, and it is slightly blurry.

    Just random scientific studies I suppose. This optometrist said they believe spending too much time indoors can be bad for your vision, when you're growing up.
