This sucks like a centrifugal pump

I had to embiggen my screen display on my laptop. The desktop icons are bigger, these words display larger. It was to the point where I was scrunched up and squinting like a two-eyed sea pirate just to see the screen. It is hard to use a computer when you are holding a magnifying glass to see the graphics. I do not need any distractions to increase my risk of offering up yet another typo.

Disease, genetics, age, too many sessions flying solo as a youth -- who knows why my nearsightedness is getting worse. I am 51. Some days I feel like I am 81.

Man up. I'm two years ahead of you, and it just gets worse.

Don't know if you are into bifocals or not, but don't go progressive!
Not a pun either.

I kind of like my progressives.

I'd rather not have to have them at all, but it is what it is.

Most of the time when I read in bed I don't bother with glasses at all. And I have to take them off to read the really small stuff on things. Either that or use a magnifying glass. YMMV.
