I so agree. I was -700 in both eyes (I what I saw at 20 feet you saw at 700 feet). I went in for Lasik - got PRK. Due to a number of issues, I had 5 surguries. I wanted 20-20 vsion. I got 10-300. Still a lot better than I had, and I don't need reading glasses. My ability to guage distances is awful, but my brain knows when it should switch to the distance eye and when it should switch to the close work eye. I am just amazed.
I thought it was strange that people read faster on paper. I would believe it if it was on nonfiction. I find paging through the tax code on paper a lot easier than online.
