Discussion Summary

Following a recent cataract surgery, Explorer Chuck describes how his distance vision is clear enough that the DMV allows him to drive without glasses, but his near vision is now too blurry for reading. He wants a solution.

The group discusses various ways to improve vision for reading, including 'reader' glasses, and hand held devices such as magnifying glasses, a smartphone reader app, and even hand-held video magnifiers.
