Near or Farsighted? -

Anyone else here where them? Are you nearsighted or farsighted?
I'm nearsighted (meaning I CAN see close up, have difficulties seeing things clearly from a distance). I have a pair of glasses, but I don't wear them often. I don't see the point in wearing them around my house. My vision isn't THAT bad.
When I do wear them though, I'm amazed at the clarity of everything. My nearsightedness happened gradually over the course of middle school / high school years. I noticed that whenever a teacher used an overhead projector, it was becoming harder to read. First I couldn't read any green marker used, then I couldn't read red marker either. Soon I could only read it if they used black, until finally I couldn't read anything on the overhead or even the chalkboard (or whiteboard, in some classes) unless I was at the front of class.
