I'm at an age where age discrimination is a possibility, but having worn
glasses all my life for 20/375 nearsightedness, I now use the computer
without glasses and prefer type of the 7 to 8 point variety. (I still need
glasses for seeing clearly beyond two feet, though.)Small type in narrow
columns provides for less fatigue (for me, at least) because the eye
muscles do not have to work as hard to read.
Age, therefore, is not a barometer of what size type one prefers. The
visual result one gets in middle age depends entirely on whether one had
perfect vision all one's life or not. I don't know the statistics on
nearsightedness in the population, but it might be an interesting subject
