I haven't been able to read a newspaper without glasses almost since the inception of computers when my eyes started going downhill!

I now wear them for both short and long distance, but only see a big blur if I do not wear glasses!

no I can't....I'm as blind as a bat.
Reading is the one thing I have never really had any dramas with where my eyes are concerned! I can see close up things well too,like hallmarks on silver and gold,so it is really handy if I want to buy an antique treat!! Pity I am not in the position to do so any more! Hee Hee!!
I can, but like when I'm reading the computer, I find myself leaning in to see better. I likely do need glasses but just haven't gone through the process yet.
Do you have glasses now, dgrwriting? It's fun choosing the frames, after the 10/15 minute eye test. My other 1/2 & I have had a few eye tests now, & the latest 1 discovered that I have cataracts on both eyes, & he has 1 on 1 eye. We're going to see a Dr next month, whom we hope we'll give us a date to have them removed. We're a lot older than you, dgrwriting, so I would think you'd only be needing the glasses, but of cause, I'm no eye specialist! I can make the writing bigger on the computer, so I can read it.

So far, so good.
I haven't been able to read anything without glasses since I was 11 years old.....
Yes, I can thanks GOD
If I hold it close enough. It have multifocals and where them all the time but because I am shortsighted I can read without glasses at close quarters, particularly useful for reading in bed.
No, I sometimes even need my magnifying glass as well as glasses!

Perhaps you may need another eye test Fran, for a stronger prescription?
Don't quote me though, I'm no eye specialist!

I wear glasses for reading but I can get by without them

But probably shouldn't
So when did they start shrinking the font in the newspaper? By my calculation it was a couple of years ago, coincidentally around the time I turned 40. Every time I look at a newspaper the font just seems to be getting smaller and smaller and don't even start me on those movie theatre screening times!
I am 72 and can still read a newspaper without glasses during the day. I find though when I read in bed at night I need a bit of help with glasses
Yes, I read without glasses, even small print, such as the phone book. I enjoy reading in bed.
I am 70 years, but have had to wear glasses for driving.ever since I got my licence at age 19.
Can at the moment, but that'll probably change in the future!
Yes, thankfully.
I don't read newspapers but I can read them just fine without my glasses no matter how small the font is. It's peoples faces and other far stuff that I can't really see.
need glassed for newspapers, cannot read anything that has been printed on a colored background so I do not bother.
No I can't, not for about 10 years now, but now I can't read anything with glasses, except for headlines in magazines & newspapers. I have to use a magnifying glass at home to read with. I'm waiting for a date to have my cataracts removed, & I'm going to be seeing a Dr about that in 2 weeks for that. At least I can enlarge the computer writing, so that has been very handy, for reading, writing emails, & answering many these questions that my other 1/2 says is a waste of my time!

I've had both eyes done now, & only need to use 2.50 magnifying glasses for reading. The 1st shop I found a pair in was a chemist & I paid $19.95 for them, then I found them in 1 of those cheap shops for $4!!! I had been looking for them in another shop for $6, but they didn't have any white framed ones, & the shop has now gone!
