Artist Paints Scenes As Seen By People With Poor Eyesight

People who do not wear glasses often ask those who do, how do you see the world, when you're not wearing glasses?  They try to explain, but it is hard to imagine. Thanks to Philip Barlow, a Cape Town-based artist, you can now have an idea.. 

He has created a series of paintings that vividly shows the struggle of those who have myopia or nearsightedness, the most common refractive error of the eye. 

Ok, if you who wear glasses, can you tell us if this is the way you see the world:
