Presbyopia : does 1's minimum distance needed vary with season ?

    Here in m'sia, in 7-05 to 11-05, I needed 2' distance to focus an
    image onto my retina, but now in 12-05 rainy season ( coldest time
    of year ) I need just 1½'. I guess the colder tap water I use to clean
    my eyes or bathe caused this reduction.
    Does any1 here have this experience ?

    Nope and no idea but bifocals can help you see clearly again from near
    or if you are nearsighted, just take your glasses off to see from near!

    | the most common reason is diabetes
    Black ants like to ingest my urine since '04, but my wounds heal as fast
    as ever, can I be diabetic ?

    | not the water.
    Then the only possible cause is that since mid 11-05, I ( have oily skin
    type ) wash my scalp @ night instead of in daylight, & so my scalp has
    less grease when I sleep, this likely made me sleep better than before
    & enable me to contract my ciliary muscles > before.

  5. Then you might consider rewriting your original post, which does not
    make sense based on this:

    I know what hes trying to say. He has presbyopia and usually needs +2
    reading glasses but on cold days he can see with only +1.5 readers. Im
    thinking it has more to do with bright light which causes the pinhole
    effect. I definately see better in bright light and also can zoom in
    closer.
