Well, I doubt you'll go blind anyway. There's probably people here that have the same or worse vision than you but they do just fine. Btw, What is your vision? (20/20, 20/40?)

er turn of capslock please.

Doctor havnt told me anything and im nearsighted. You should try to see if you can spar. If u really cant see the gloves and hands you shouldnt go matches but train it for fun.

Well all i can say is to try it. You can always quit during a pass if you feel bad.

If it has a pretty decent chance of making you go blind.. I really wouldn't do it, most of the time boxing is temporary, sight and living life to the fullest with it is forever. What would you do without sight man? Make a Decision Making Module, pro's and con's of each, in my eyes, the bad outweighs the good. As I do like the sport of boxing,(I participate in it myself) I don't think I would do it under the circumstances you are delt. If you REALLLLLLY think you LOOOVE the sport and want to make it forever.. Why not. Nothing to lose....

Except your vision?. Can't exactly "make boxing forever" if you can't see.. Hehh, decision making module..

I also have poor vision, and I was told by many people to just quit boxing, but i can't. I love what I do. I love to spar, and I love to box, and I don't see myself quitting in the future.

Same here. I can see colors and blurs, but I can still sense motion. I do without my glasses and I have bad vision relatively. I suggest that you just spar or fight without your contacts or glasses. Trust me, your eyes will adapt.
