So, what usually happens when you try to go out to a supermarket to get diapers? You feel scared, and very stressed out because you think everyone is watching you.

I can't say for others, but myself I am nearly blind in my right eye, and my left eye sucks as well. I'm extremely nearsighted. One day, I went to buy myself a new 18 pack of diapers. What did I do? I took off my glasses for the purchase! It helped extremely with the "everyone-is-watching-you" anxiety because you can't really see anyone in the store! It lifts a tremendous load when you can't see if people are actually looking at you or if they aren't.

So if you're nearsighted, give this tip a try.

That sounds like a really.. odd tip if you ask me. My right eye is probably equally bad as yours is, but my left is not bad enough to use your trick so the trick will not work.

It's good that you're willing to share the odd experience you had with others, I'm quite sure someone will find use in the tip!

So.. do you reckon sunglasses have the same effect?

Not really, because you can still see the people around you. The point of my tip is, is to make it so you can't see them as well as you normally would.

Which is why I was wondering if sunglasses might help because sunglasses alter the colours so it's not like you normally see people

of course you can just as well buy a set of glasses that isn't your strength and they'd unsharpen your image if you're not extremely nearsighted! :D

Lol...that's some fancy strategy.

I would work for me, but while my left eye is pretty useless and could, indeed, not see anything further away than 2inches, my other eye does see everything without glasses.

This doesn't work for me because I can see decent in both eyes, but my right eye washes out color, is a little dark, and can see this post from 16 inches.

Well, my eyes are bad enough that I need glasses, but not nearly that bad. This trick might not work for me, as I could still make out just how many people see me buying this pack of diapers.

I have to put my reading glasses on to read the size, otherwise I'd wind up with diapers that are way too big, because I never see any smalls just medium large and xlarge.

But I do wear sunglasses at all times when I'm not home.

Do the sunglasses help you give a feeling of anonymity? Do they help you feel less stressed? Any information is useful, as long as it's said and spread!

I have a different method of coping with the feeling that people are looking at you. I always have a little story as to why I am buying them. Not necessary as no one ever raises the topic, but it makes me feel better.

wouldnt taking your glasses off also throw off people you know, becuase youll lose part of your identity. I also wear a certain hat and shirt that i never wear anywhere else and its of a completely different style than I would normaly wear. I will also untuck my shirt to further throw people off as i always have my shirt tucked in.

Sorry, offtopic, but.. Holy crap! Are you my clone?! I'm blind in my right eye and not doing so well in my left also!

:O


In any case, that is a pretty good idea, but I don't wear my glasses much lol.

I foresee one problem. What if you run into someone you know, but since you don't have your glasses on, can't see them? I know if I was walking around without my glasses, I wouldn't know who was standing 4 feet in front of me. It's a good idea, just make sure you're in an area of town that you're certain you won't know anyone in.

LOL my problem is that if I took off my glasses I would not be able to find the diapers, I would be almost totally blind. Nice tip though, good luck to all who try!

Conversely, if you have good vision you could wear someone's prescription and get the same result. Doubles as a disguise!
