I wouldn’t dare – would you?

I have really bad balance and poor eyesight so I would never manage most of these!

Another problem I have with stairs is that I have progressive-lens glasses. They have three different lenses in one – one for long-distance, one for medium-distance and one (the bottom) for close distance (reading). When going down stairs, if I look downwards with my head straight instead of bending my head down, I look down into the reading lenses and I cannot see the steps. It’s just a blur of the same colour and I don’t know where to put my feet.


Those ladders!

I would trip right over this
I would not see this bump until it was way too late!

One thought

  1. I would not manage most of these, my distance eyesight is okay but they are too much of a brain f**k to manage without getting vertigo. The ones I can see clearly would pose too many problems with climbing up or going down because of them being uneven. Sympathies with you but the views from the top are amazing, I bet, just impossible to arrive up there.
