I'm headed the opposite direction. I wore contacts 24/7 until 5 or 6 years ago. Like you said, the up-close vision goes after 40, so you have to correct one or the other, near or far. I think it's easier to wear glasses and remove them up close, than to wear contacts and fumble around for reading glasses up close.
Get this: I checked with my optometrist about options. He suggested I go Lasik - cut one eye for distance, the other eye for up close. I thought he was drunk or something until I researched it, and that is what they do. Strangest thing I ever heard.
But even more puzzling ... what's with Hogan's problem "sticking his fingers in his eye?"
