  • Myopic Perspective In Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club

    The author of Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk, once stated, “The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close up” (Chuck, n.d.). His statement highlights a condition I call a myopic perspective. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a condition in which a person can clearly see objects close-up while objects in the distance look blurry (“Myopia,” n.d.). A myopic perspective is a similar impairment limiting people’s psychological viewpoint or internal vision versus their physical vision, and it limits their overall understanding of how distant events will impact their lives, which in turn inhibits their ability to foresee obstacles and plan for their future. Nevertheless, people suffering from a nearsighted perspective can improve their quality of life by taking deliberate actions to broaden their point of view and thus become better equipped to see the big picture, analyze the past, predict future events, and make effective decisions.

  • Contact Camera Research Paper

    For an astigmatism, the cornea is misshaped and there are two places in the eye where the light is focused. To fix this, a contact lens is made into the correct shape to account for the misshaped cornea. In the case of presbyopia, the eye muscles can lose their elasticity with age and typically a bifocal or multifocal lens is needed for this. These generally have different shapes or curves made into one lens. The inferior portion of the lens would be for reading or looking at objects up…
