“for a few years, anyway, you WILL have to wear reading glasses later on, no matter what), “

You really do not know what you are talking about. Not everyone experiences hardening of the inner lense as to require reading glasses. I know plenty of elderly people that do not require reading glasses. Even at my age I still don’t.

Mrs. Slim got it over a decade ago and it was good for most of that time. Still needed reading glasses. However, she recently had cataract surgery and despite glowing reports from others, it did not clear up her vision as much as she would have liked.

Presbyopia is considered a universal age-related affliction. Not by me, but by practioners of vision related specialties.

I have no idea how old you are, or what your vision condition is; there are many reasons you may not need to wear reading glasses just yet, even if you are of the age (40 - 50) where symptoms start to manifest.
