Part 6 of 7 - Blind Trust/Contact Lenses/Specs That Were Made Wrong

Spexy Guy: Jon Tyler
Specs: Ray-Ban
Rx: -27.00 Right/-27.00 Left
What the Spexy Guy says about his specs in regards to situations when he is without them:Whenever a situation arises in which I have to take my glasses off such as: Haircuts, Swimming, Surgeries, Amusement park rides, I do not hand off my glasses.  If any thing were to happen to my specs I would become essentially handicapped.  
In 2002, while staying in Savannah and in Tybee Island in GA, I went wading in the ocean to cool off,  The surf was very gentle that day and the weather got a little windy. As I headed back to the beach a choppy wave caught me off guard and knocked me down.  When I stood up my glasses were gone.  That was a bad month and a half.  In that time of not being able to see, I lost my job, my house, my car, my dignity and self esteem but I always rise. It took almost a year to get back to my former self.
So yeah, I don’t hand off.  I barely even allow people to try them on but hey its fun, especially when there’s a pic that I can see later.
My friends and family find it strange when they find out that I wear my glasses in the shower, while napping sometimes, in an indoor/outdoor pool, water slides, canoeing, and even sex.  I mean, I got to see the fun I am having - right?”
What the Spexy Guy says about his recently acquired contact lenses:In July 2014 I bought my first pair of soft lenses, the rx is -20,8.6,14.2 in both eyes, with a pair of -4 glasses with 2 discs of astigmatism.  Coopervision proclear contact lenses, and the glasses are Timex TMX skimmer. I decided to get a teflon coating that helps to prevent glare if i decide to use them in the show.  
I enjoy wearing my contacts all day and taking them off at night when I am home relaxing.  It definitely is a big difference, the world looks different and more clear with this combination.  I am not use to what I look like though.  That is still taking me by surprise when I look in the mirror.  I would say that my glasses and all the good and bad that has come with it has become the person I am today.  I am still very partial to them.
I have received many messages from fans who do not like the contacts who think that I am better looking with glasses that without, and even some have talked about health risks associated with contacts also.  Mostly though I have surrounded myself with great people in my life who do not judge me by whether I do or do not wear glasses and are comfortable at all times with me because I not matter what choice I make am comfortable with myself.”
What the Spexy Guy says about his specs that were made wrong:I went to get new glasses and after waiting a month and with a promise that they would be thin - enter those.  I could not see with them and they were the thickest pair I had ever seen before - at least an inch-and-a-half or more easy.   They were so heavy I think my nose cried. Sent these boys back. They took out the lenses and used that frame for my glasses that I wear with my contacts.”

Part 1 of 7 - Jon’s History

Spexy Guy: Jon Tyler 


Specs: Ray-Ban

Rx: -27.00 Right/-27.00 Left

What the Spexy Guy says about his specs: “I am Jon Tyler, Born in June of 1975 in Massachusetts.  Spent my first years in Germany as my father was stationed in the Army there.


At the age of 2, I received my first pair of glasses. My mother said the first thing I really saw was a huge American Flag on base. Apparently they were the brightest colors I had ever seen. I talked about flags for weeks my mother told me.

My eye condition has yet to be determined if it is passed down, however my grandfather had bad vision. In the army as a young man debris damaged his eye on top of his astigmatism, Later in life he suffered greatly from glaucoma and cataracts with numerous surgeries. He spent the later 25 to 30 years of life barely able to see, but managing wonderfully. He is a big role model for me for the obstacles I may or may not have to face. My parents have normal vision, wear glasses. Two siblings with perfect vision and one sibling who has my diagnosis as well. 

My vision is all I have known my whole life.  In comparison to my peers who did not struggle with vision impairments, I would say I am stronger, due to being set apart growing up as a child and among other children teens and even adults who did not understand and were cruel.

I’ve spent most of my life at -24 right, and -23 left eye. 2 discs astigmatism.  My childhood and pre teen and early adult years were all the same, there generally was no change until 2001.  A blood vessel in my left eye had started to leak blood into my retina creating a shadow in my vision.  I underwent Vizudyne therapy to fix the problem. Very interesting laser surgery by the way. However the damage can not be reversed and now have a scar that blocks part of my central vision (looks like a black rain drop everywhere I look but only if my right is shut). It does not affect my daily life at all. 
 
Growing up with glasses that are this expensive was rough.  For fear of breaking them and not being able to see, I became a wallflower of sorts.  I was the guy who wanted to, but didn’t.  Alienating my self from social activities.  Being the loner though, I became creative, became a big dreamer, read a lot, and excelled in my studies.

Four eyes, Coke bottles, Double Hubble, Can I borrow your glasses I need to see Pluto. Yeah that’s a day in the life of me in junior and senior high. Teens can be so cruel.   I remember once I broke my glasses so I didn’t have to go to school. That worked only once that was a great month. 
 
As an adult my specs seem to make me a spectacle sometimes,  everywhere I go people are always asking if they can try them on, How do you see out of those. etc…..  Most are just curious because it is not something they see everyday.  I don’t mind much.  I have even made some friends because of them.   My glasses can be an icebreaker sometimes. 

When I am not wearing my glasses I literally do not see at all, the world is one big blur of color and light.  Wearing glasses I see well, sometimes in the early morning after waking it takes a few minutes to adjust to light, dusk and dawn are huge problems for me. 
 
Mostly all my life my specs have got me to 20.70. My latest pair have me to 20.40.

[I am] able to drive.  I deeply love driving.”
