I've been nearsighted, and worn glasses for many years. Actually, I mainly wear contacts. More recently, I've needed reading glasses. But (and here's the weird thing,) I only need the reading glasses when my contacts are in. If I'm not wearing my contacts, I can read things up close just fine.

WTF is that ?



 
I was the same way for years. it will change as the reading prescription gets stronger.

I always thought presbyopia was limited to what I have, which is inability to focus on things close to the eye due to stiffening of the lens. I guess for some it works the other way.

 
They're two different things but don't cancel each other out. Most of us will suffer from both, eventually. I guess my saying the nearsightedness comes from the same stiffening of the lens isn't correct, tho.

Same thing for me. I can read ok with glasses, but it's all a blur with the contacts. I think it might have something to do with the focal point being closer with contacts/farther with glasses. I dread if the day comes when I can't read with glasses either.

It's typical, and I'm the same way, except my distance vision is not so bad that I can't drive without glasses legally. I prefer to drive, ski, go to movies etc with glasses or contacts, but I don't have to. Normally I do without, because it's so annoying to me to have to have reading glasses or bifocals or take the glasses off to see up close.

The lens in your eye distorts in order to focus on things at different distances. The flexibility of the lens decreases as we age (sorry) and distance vision (if we ever had it) is the first to go: nearsightedness. Put a lens in front of your eye to help focus on distance, it affects your ability focus up close. You probably only notice the problem when you're wearing contacts because it's so easy to remove your glasses to read up close that you might not even realize you're doing it... it's just more comfortable, like taking off your sunglasses indoors.
 
You and I probably have a few more years of being able to read without correction, but I've noticed that without readers (and without contacts), I have to hold books at just the right distance*, and books with smaller type than normal make me sad.
 
*Probably a coincidence but it's the same distance as I usually have my computer monitor. I moved my work monitor further away a few years ago, to try to re-introduce some flexibility. Maybe I should have moved it closer.
