OK, so I’m in my 40’s and developing middle-age short-sightedness. It happens to us all.
I must be ridiculously vain because I hate wearing glasses.
I do however have a coping mechanism. I photograph the thing I can’t read on my smartphone, then view the photo and zoom in.
It works, but admittedly it isn’t the most practical approach.
Brilliant Idea #204 is a simple smart-phone app that magnifies the image, or part of the image hence cutting out the taking a photo part of the process.
