4. Get the right glasses prescription---Until I had cataract surgery, I carried around 2 pairs of glasses--Normal bifocals, and "Computer". With the surgery, I was able to pick a "set point" which seems to be good for both computer and light reading with no glasses. (I still have bifocals)
I'm afraid this mostly apply when user is farsighted. Or if he is seriously near-sighted (-10 or lower, I think). But it would be nice to hear details about "computer" glasses - i.e. how the differ from default glasses.
