For Myopic (short sight), you need concave glass to correct this. Each individual eyesight (left or right eye) has it's own line of axis of view and is easy shift up/down or sideway(left/right) by the concave glass when look thru the space/eyepiece/view finder(also glass). <Glasses related:> This can give incorrect images depending on what portion of the glasses you are looking through, i.e. it might look like the sharpest image but in actually it isn't.
The very expensive glass (gradient degree type): top glass (highest degree) middle portion glass(almost corrected degree) bottom(lowest degree) may help.
I disagree: Glasses will interfere with the camera. Don't forget the view of seeing the object is difference from those without wearing spec.
No effect towards photography but yes to the eyes, which is why I side track the topic for interest sake.
High quality spectacle optics like top quality plastic for example offer good clarity, light/thin, scratch resistance and lesser discoloration. Besides view quality, aesthetic view improves there is little distortion when people look your eyes. Even progressive lens distortion is not visible from outside.
Those who never used high spectacle optics before will fear using shirt to clean for fear of scratches or chipped when dropped. While others are heavy that leaves a deep impression on the nose bridge.
For a long time....this is the best thing I have done to myself...I am free from spectacle now, and I can see far sight clearly without aid.....road sign....car no.plate....Text on TV etc....though the whole picture is is still in dreamy effect now...it should improve over days.....To me this is the best pair of lens that I could own
from guitars, cars to dslr...
where you doing your lasik? intralase or what? offer a lil details please =D would prove useful to over half the sg populace
1 Camera Body and a couple lenses.
If presbyopia (lo fa- not pin ying, but u know what I mean) has set in, try a cataract/ clear lens extraction operation. It can do the same job. Actually it can be better, because
1) if u have lasik now, give it 5-15 years and you might need the cataract surgery anyway)
2) multifocal lenses can correct for presbyopia too (lasik cannot)- though there are other drawbacks.
Of course a cataract operation has higher and more serious risks.
The main issue with even successful lasik surgery is that drs still cannot accurate gauge which lens implant to put in when cataract surgery is needed 20-30 years later. But if your cornea has sufficient depth then they can always lift the flap and do a re-treatment
Me? I'm happy with contact lenses for now. In fact I went back to contacts when I took up photography
OT a little - To others considering Lasik - I am in my early 40s. My left eye degree actually improved from -425 to -375. I reduced my contact lens prescription further to -350 to enable reading without a need for reading glasses. If I had done lasik in my 30s, my eye would have been over-corrected.
I am very impressed. Here we talk about glasses and lasik and at the bottom the advertisment of eyewear and lasik.
Is the banner done manually or by picked by program text search.
I find that my 'hit rate' with the split-screen and microprism collar is very high - I have a number of older cameras with that kind, and I'm working with fast primes such as 35/2.0's, 28/2.8 and 45/2.8's (the last one is a med format).
I would prefer not to use MF on my AF cameras since they don't have that screen.. I find that the matte screens are not as precise as the split/prism screens for MF. Let the AF do its job.
As for me, I am happy to be able to go specs free on my daily tasks now

I rely on the AF most of the time. So no problem for me. The problem with glasses is that after shooting, the glasses get dirty because of the contact with the rubber, and the glasses contact the eye lashes, etc... so must clean.
wearing specs will not cause ur pics will be blur. but there are some tips for u..
1) your imaging sensor could be dirty, clean it
2) ur lens could be dirty
3) u are using a poor quality filter in the front that causes reflection ( i had a poor quality 1 and all my pictures look blur including in the viewfinder..
but if u say whn u look into the view finder, the pic is clear,but the pic when taken aint clear, most likely ur imaging sensor is dirty. u have to lift up the mirror to clean the sensor. but i am not a professional so look up the net for some sensor cleaning guides
