    my only E-reader is this computer, and it's a desktop.

    The real problem, though, is that to get the words into proper focus, I have to tilt my head back and read through my bifocals, and that quickly becomes uncomfortable for my neck muscles.  It's bad enough on this site: I can't imagine trying to read an entire book that way.

    Definitely need a new prescription and new lenses.  I suspect I will be prescribed trifocals: gah!

      I've had progressives for a few years.  They work pretty well, including on the computer.

        Just push them up or down my nose depending on where I need close vision.

          I don't need reading glasses.  But one eye is SO much worse than the other, I have a coke bottle lens.  Have to shell out for the superthin plastic lens or...well, coke bottle.

          I've been wearing these things since third grade.  No tears...but just a realistic understanding of what it will cost, and where I will go.  Hint: I'm not going online for new lenses b/c I need to have an acquaintance with the optician...just in case.

          Other people have family doctors?  I have an optician.

          Yes, my vision is almost that bad.
