Can't read your music, try this.

Measure the distance between your eyes and the screen, then go and stand in front of one off these cheap spec displays at the same distance and find the pair that is best for you. If like me your eyes are different, buy one pair for the left eye and one pair for the right eye, the lenses are easily changed to make a good pair.
Mine were £1 per pair so for just £2 I have the best specs I have ever had for my Tyros and Desktop PC.

Excellent solution for vision problems of magnification only and very economical.
For those of us with more complicated corrections (cylindrical, angular correction) A similar savings (not as inexpensive) can be realized by ordering perscription readers only from an online provider.
A standard bifocal from local providers will cost $200-300 (US) or more and the on line readers can be obtained for less than $100 (depending on power and Rx variations). I keep a pair on each keyboard to read music and switch to bifocals to see the audience. Yours is an ingenious solution!
