...and the effect increases with the degree of correction(s). Nevertheless, 
I prefer "progressives" (or would we say "varifocal" on this list?), but 
this is a real YMMV issue. Personally, I don't like using glasses at all 
with cameras because you get one or more of (1) incomplete FOV, (2) 
scratched lenses and/or (3) dirty lenses. I am still using dioptric 
correction on the cameras and living without correction for astignatism but, 
again, YMMV. The only really good solution is perfect vision, which for some 
implies getting younger and for others never existed anyway. <sigh>

Progressives have "dead" spots, I prefer bifocals.
