As a baby I used to bleed from my right eye. One could see dry blood on my eye if I was near the sun. I am older now. This is no longer the case but I have been scarred with very bad eyesight: -9 on the left and -16 on the right. My family struggle a lot financially. Recently, I used an NHS optical voucher to get a pair of glasses but little did I know that large frames would mean very thick lense. I look like a freak. I sit on my own table in class because people tend to avoid me. The victim of bullying seems the norm and many mock or laugh. I am only 17 man what did I do to deserve this. I always get back up but then this drops me back down to reality. I got no chance here. My family don't understand my pain. Nobody understands and I notice my opticians even mocking me. Argh you probably don't understand and for any confusion I apologise.
What are the downsides?
