Can't see much out of my left eye anyway - just colour and movement, but no focus at all, so its no real loss. Funnily enough, I once ran into some holly in fading light in the woods, badly scratching the cornea in my good eye, just before a trip to the Lakes. After a visit to A&E I had to wear a patch for two days and couldn't run, and the Mrs had to drive us there. I then had to wear very dark sunglasses for the next few day, even though it was grey. Made for interesting fell-running!!
Philip - can I have a pirate beard too please?
I like my run commute too AG (not always though - those cold, wet, dark Jan runs in the woods can sometimes be a bit hard to stomach!). I think SG needs to be shown how to use an OS map (were you a boy scout at all SG?).
Talking off whihc - very much fading light territory tonight, not helped by having to take a lengthy detour around a herd of enormous and quite skittish looking bullocks that have just turned up in one of the fields I cross!
I missed this post somehow. I had a left-eye squint as a baby and even though it was corrected (ish, early 80s laser surgery) my brain tends not to use that eye. The introduction of monitors and tiny phones with tiny screens doesn't help either.
We used slide rules in uni. I think it was a history lesson or something.
