    thanks.
    the difference between ''sight'' and ''view'' is very subtle, right?
    is ''sight'' more related to a physical thing meanwhile ''view'' tends to mean ''interpretation''?
    if I went to an optometrist, would I check my ''sight'' or my ''view'', please?
    thanks.

    Correct - yes, if you go to have your eyes checked, you are having your sight checked.
