john i too had that problem and fought it for some time with the walmart readers but they get so you can see the real close stuff,, i have a prescription pair of bifocals that allow me to see threw the top with some kind of zoom and then if i need to get ral close i can look threw the cut part where the zoom is higher they have safty glass lenses and side sheilds.. after while you get past the : "i have to wear these" and for general use i can get by with none but the reading and computer work needs the glasses.. i like the magnetic oneslike stu showed,, toni from spain had a pair but i have never found a source and they are kinda preppy for the likes of me and my surroundings..also need to mention as well that the part where jim says the focal length is spot on!!! just had to go back again to get a new set of lookers and the reason was the eye doc left it as the short version and i couldnt see the monitor clear enough to do my day job and the sides of the monitor went in at th top at least 3/4" out of square.. i wasnt happy.. but got them redone for free and now i can see to type again
