This has been an interesting topic for me (thanks moOg for starting it
). I’m 51 and have been very short sighted since my teens. It put paid to my childhood dream of flying professionally. I always hoped that when presbyopia kicked in it would cancel out the short sight to some extent, but in my case it hasn’t. In fact my short sight has got marginally worse and in the last year the prescription for my contact lenses has been increased by another 0.5 dioptres. This has sharpened up my distance vision, but now I can no longer focus comfortably at anything on my lap. Reading flight instrument is fine, but looking at the chart or fine detail on SkyDemon on my knee is nigh on impossible.
I’ve come across Nooz reading specs (https://www.nooz-optics.com/en/
) which don’t have arms and just pop on the nose (my daughter thinks they are hysterical and nearly dies laughing when she sees me using them). To my mind the perfect solution would be if Nooz did half-rims!
TopCat: thanks for your link. I didn’t know such things existed and I’m going to give some a try.
Ultimately though I think I need to talk to my optician about getting some suitable glasses made up properly to wear when I'm wearing contacts, but which deal with my presbyopia.
