Eat carrots, use an illuminated keyboard, don't spend quite so much time 'beating the bishop' and sit closer to the goddamned monitor :)

Given my level of solitary sexual activity I should be able to retire on medical grounds any day now

Or squint! :)

I was nearly blind and couldn't see a thing, near or far, without a pretty hefty (7+ diopters) prescription. I'd classify my eyesight as "miserable" with constant daily maintenance of contacts and cleaning solutions.

Then I got LASIK. That was the best medical choice I've ever made. Now, I can actually read the alarm clock at night. I don't have to worry about my contacts falling out or misplacing my glasses. And wow; you don't realize the time savings and overall efficiency gains by not having contact maintenence chores every day.

I wear glasses while driving to improve safety (especially at night) , but otherwise my eyesight is good enough not to bother me. I feel like there should be a "I don't do anything" option, as it is very seldom that I drive (and thus wear glasses).

I'm in almost the same boat... My sight is good enough that I pass DMV eye exams without issue, but I do have prescription glasses for an astigmatism, and came to realize the world is a bit fuzzier (and slower to come into focus) for me than it is to most everyone else.
