I had a special pair of bifocals made for use at the monitor. They worked
okay as long as I was in DOS with my 15" monitor, but when I went to Windows
and Word, with the smaller, lighter fonts on a white screen, I was straining

glasses, made from my bifocals, and that solve my problems. I now work in
DOS or Windows programs with complete ease.
