I got my eyes checked last week due to not being able to tell focus on my rebel 35MM(no diopter adjustment). Yup, turns out I need glasses! Small astigmatism when viewing up close objects!
I had to laugh because I turned 30 yesterday and need glasses! I fear the worst for 40!

Well I'm only a year older then you and this has been going on a while so it seems possible. Man getting old stinks and I'm not even old yet. lol
Astigmatism is no joke. It sucks hardcore. Mine didn't start kicking in until I was around 40. I first noticed it when trying to read small print on things like instruction sheets, etc. I thought the contacts I had gotten were the wrong prescription (have been nearsighted, since age of 6).
Turns out, once the astigmatism gets to a certain point regular contacts and glasses can no longer correct it. At first, it was just with contacts in. Could still see small stuff fine, with glasses. Now, it's glasses too. Dr said I will need bifocals, in a year or two. He lied. I need them, now. Trying to read anything fineprint is impossible, unless I remove my glasses or use "cheaters" with my contacts in.
And I'm not even old, yet (43)
