Okay, question, do I live in a smaller world than people with normal eyes?

I noticed that when you look over your glasses (minus 3.5) half through the glasses and half to the real world, that the blurry real world is larger. My 28" computer screen seems 32", my cats head looks larger, my hands look larger, stuff like that. Like in this picture.

So my glasses make the world smaller for me.

But, my eyes are minus 3.5. I was wondering that if I had normal eyes if the world would be the same size as behind my glasses or the same size as my blurry world is now. After all, the refraction of a minus 3.5 eye is pretty off.
