Fireworks Without Glasses

© Norman Sperling, July 3, 2012

One of the very few benefits of being near-sighted is that fireworks look bigger and more resplendent. That's because the out-of-focus image spreads out over a lot more cone receptors in the retina.

If you're nearsighted, try watching fireworks without your glasses. You might like the show even more.
