    The "problem" came to me about one and a half years ago. I as short-sighted and wearing glasses, but started having to take out glasses to eat lunch (could not see what I was eating) as well as change settings on camera. Hated that, and also hated having to adjust dioptre on viewfinder.

    Then went for lasik. Now I can see far, I don't have to adjust diopotre. But I have to wear reading glasses before I can change settings on camera. And I hate that.

    Lasik has some limits - do check with doc. Myopia is due to focal length issues. Lasik's good for this - changing the natural focal length. But the "far-sightedness" issue is due to muscles that cannot focus near. Lasik has limited use here.

    Happy New Year all!

    Allan,
    Don't think you will have problem looking thru the viewfinder lah
    You might have problem reading the camera/lens settings though ...

    People should take a break from the computer screen as well man. Any of you take breaks? Or do you just stay glued to the display?

    sigh...

    you're right on this...

    though i know and agree with the wisdom of your advice, the truth is that at work, i'm so pressed for time and absorbed in what i'm doing that i only move away when i'm called away...
