Reading Glasses

Recently, I've been having trouble reading small print, in low-light situations. I've always had perfect vision, in contrast with my dental and other issues, so it was quite a shock when an optometrist told me I needed reading glasses due to Presbyopia. The thought of aging-related vision problems was depressing enough, and I didn't want to buy those glasses they sell at CVS, so I did some research and bought a pair online that I thought looked decent, Seattle Eyeworks 812. They came with a cleaning cloth that doubles as an eye chart. Whoa, I can see things close up again! This should improve my typing accuracy on the Blackberry. Fortunately, beyond about 14" my vision is still excellent without glasses, but I'll probably eventually need prescription eyeglasses of some kind.
