Yesterday I was diagnosed with Astigmatism but I forgot to ask the doctor a question so I was hoping someone could answer it for me.
I lived on a state route which is like a busy 2 lane road and one day I was crossing the street and I looked both ways and didn't see any cars coming and went to step out into the road and my fiance stopped me and I looked over and there was a SUV about 2 car lengths away, which where we lived it was a long stretch of road in both directions so I should have seen the SUV coming. Can this be due to my astigmatism? To not see a large vehicle, only open road, that was actually there? It was almost as if the light refracted around the SUV in such a way that it made it completely invisible to me.
After that I looked both ways 5 times before crossing so that if it did it again I would see the car eventually.View Thread
