      This is where I would run into a problem. I'd LOVE to be able to lose the
      glasses, especially for educational demos. But my focal point without
      corrective lenses is approximately 3 inches in front of my nose; I wouldn't be able
      to see to demo anything, much less find the right item to show to a curious
      person. I've tried several different types of contacts; the BEST I've ever
      had required the use of rewetting drops every hour or more frequently and I
      still needed to get my fingernails on them to peel them off my eyeballs. They
      are simply not an option for me. And no, I cannot afford LASIK.
