I see what you are saying but

I see what you are saying but without over thinking it the way I see it is the monitor or display is perfectly focused and sharp, the problem is with your eye's so adjusting the monitor in any way would simply worsen the problem, I think?

Personally I think a test for this is if you can take your glasses and move them forward how far can you go before you can no longer see clearly through the lens?

My self I can't go far... My vision is very bad. But also the prescription is set up for a set distance? And this also will only make things beyond that clearer.

But a key point is this. If you can not see clearly to your monitor then even if you had a prescription glass there it would still be blurry between your eyes and the screen. Thus just as bad.

I can definitely see clearly without my glasses if I am close enough. I don't have a good way to measure the distance, but it seems like about a foot.

Dont Know

Hi Matt, I dont know if it's possible but it would be handy for me also since I'm short sighted!

Reading Bills comment I was amazed to hear that some rich people get their windshields made to their prescription- that's just amazing!

I don't think it's possible to do it on the viewed end, only on the viewing end. I know that some rich guys have their car's windshield ground to their prescription so they can drive without glasses, but that's something you look THROUGH, not AT. For it to do something like you want, you'd have to adjust the font size to where you see it.
