MIT Corrective Displays

Back in my early forties (i.e. oh so long ago) I had Lasik surgery, which was one of the best decisions of my life, and enjoy perfect distance vision. It's wonderful for running, golfing, skiing, gardening, mowing and any other activity involving sweat. The down side is I need reading glasses (i.e. cheaters) to read up close and more than 90% of that time is spent staring at my various and beloved computer displays. 

That may be changing in the coming years based on an MIT research project which bends light at the display, performing the same type of refocusing currently done by corrective lenses. 

Then if I could have restaurants use large print on their receipts, I would be in heaven.
