Well, there will have been changes. But since your max focal distance (without glasses) is only 9cm from your eyes, you probably haven't noticed that you can no longer focus as well on objects that are closer to your eyes than 9cm.

(I'm 58 and need around -7 lenses, so I can still easily read without my glasses on, but I have noticed that for really close work I need a magnifier now.)

Yeah, I have not needed a magnifier yet. OTOH I still can't really read without glasses either, unless I bring the text very close to my eyes.

Yes, I'm an office worker on a laptop most of the day and also between that and phone, get a lot of screen reading.

As for the warm light, something is definitely up with it still. Used to be if you turned it all the way up it was very "warm" and too much - now all the way up it just dims it a bit and is what the lower setting of the warm light used to be. I know that parts not my eyes, but some change with the feature with the screen.

You will eventually need reading glasses, but for now reading in brighter light with a larger font will work.


[But it's definitely worth have a proper eye test at an optician]
I was reading on it and see that 38-42 is usually "the age" -- I have been lucky so far, but you explaining on dim light reassures me also. I will set up an eye exam just in case but have been using reading glasses over the weekend with the Oasis which has been helping. The paperback reading is still fine but different lighting.

Heh, I was getting headaches and halos when I was 47-48, but in my case it turned out to be an early-stage hypertension (which runs in my family on both my parents' side). I've been on blood-pressure meds since and will be until my death, I guess. Oh, joys of aging.
