We always start appreciating something truly once we lose it. Ever wondered how people with nearsightedness see and perceive the world? If you want to understand how just imagine a blurry photo out of focus and you’ll have a mere idea of what’s it like.

In his very interesting oil paintings series, a Cape Town-based artist Philip Barlow illustrates what people with bad eyesight see when they take off their glasses.

Barlow’s super-realistic paintings give the sense of blurry images and thanks to their hyper-realistic style will make you think there is really an error in your eyesight.
