“I got my first pair of glasses when I was seven. A nurse came to the school and tested everyone’s eyes. And so it was discovered why I’d thrown bread to the floating crisp packets in our local pond and walked into lampposts and said, ’excuse me’. Until that day the world was a swirl of moving coloured blobs.
I thought it was the same for everyone. How wrong I was.”
