    I know there are many disabled people who read ACF, so I don't think it
    would be OT here.
    I am looking for a utility to put a computer monitor 'out of focus',
    similar
    to the diopter viewing ring on binoculars, so that someone who only wears
    glasses for reading/computer can adjust the focus to compensate. Would I be
    right in saying this could allow the computer to be used without putting
    glasses on and off all the time? Or am I taking a simplistic view.

    I am surprised that mobile phone and monitor manufacturers seem to have not
    thought of this before, perhaps it would be more complicated to achieve
    than
    I think.

    Any thoughts on this please?

    an out of focus monitor isnt the same thing. Binoculars work like
    glasses, the monitor doesnt. Best way is get some computer glasses so
    youll be in perfect focus at your distance. If you sit 20" from the
    computer, get glasses that make you -2 diopters and correct all your
    astigmastim. If someone is -5, he can wear -3 glasses for the computer.
