Linguistic complaints

Admit it. I say that someone is nearsighted, and you automatically think that the person cannot see things up close. Then, after a few seconds, you remember that you must force yourself to think counter-intuitively when it comes to vision impairment. Nearsighted people can only see things near them, and while this makes logical sense based upon the actual meaning of the word, it’s not how we think when we hear the word.

Am I alone on this one?
