Seeing great distances

I spent the whole day yesterday in the magnificent mountains of the Priorat and Montsant domains of inland Catalonia. I made the decision to jack my lenses back up a quarter-diopter to give me “full-prescription” crisp long-distance vision (and no glasses at all within a restaurant, of course). It felt like the right thing to do, giving my brain a really memorable reminder of what super-distinct focus looks like.

A few indoor vistas were quite long, too, as in this dormitory of a medieval Cistercian house, the Royal Monastery of Poblet.

Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful pictures. Is the “full prescription” measured by you or opto prescribed?

It’s the 20/20-producing lenses that I’ve arrived at after three diopter reductions. No opto was harmed in the choice and construction of these glasses!

Thanks for having me clarify that.

Actually, now that I think of it, that last one almost looks live a medieval vision test, with the images receding into the distance.
