How are you handling reading now? Any problems?

I'm presuming (perhaps wrongly) that you're past the age where bifocals generally come into play.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

My eye doctor was very upfront with me. I was given the option of near/mid or mid/far vision. I was about 45 when I had the lasik and worked with computers so I new that readers were going to be in my future. I chose mid/far. I need readers but, I can see the leaves on trees way, way off in the distance. The only issue I can tell is that at night, I don't see the stars as clearly as I remember. I don't regret the decision at all!

I was getting close to needing readers anyhow. The two most immediate results were:
-I can read road signs without glasses
-I need to move my iPhone about 1.5 feet out from my face to read the normal text size for emails

I was already having to take a few seconds to adjust to read emails on the iPhone, so it's not that big of a change. Youth sailed away a while back so readers were inevitable with, or without LASIK. At least now I don't need them to drive or to see when I wake up in the middle of the night.

I don't think you can get these anymore but I swear by them "Brimz" perfect for boatwork if I hung other styles around my neck they would fill with fiber glass dust these stay clear under the brim or my hat or visor. Love 'em!

Large Serengeti Aviators.
90+% of all commercial/ATP pilots wear them, which is how I discovered them.
They cut out all glare, yet they can penetrate the gloom.
There are only maybe three products that I swear by, and my Serengetis are at the top of the list.
(Somehow, I couldn't get the image to display here, so...)

Well, at 62, I had cataract surgery - both eyes, bionic lenses and for the first time since the 3rd grade - no glasses!! I got the multifocal lenses, so no reading glasses either. Ok, now in regard to Sunglasses, my first big spend were on Smith's at REI which are pretty great and sporty. But.... I wandered into a Sunglass Hut and discovered Maui Jim. Pricey, but think of the $$ I'm saving on prescription sunglasses. Way cool.

Whatever feels comfortable for you, and suits your tastes. Driving, I wear Ray Ban Caravan. Riding my motorcycle, I wear Bobster Rattler.
