    With respect to *handheld* binoculars, I cannot imagine using them 
    without my eyeglasses.  Maybe it's due to the fact that I'm very 
    nearsighted and also have astigmatism.  But also I depend very 
    much on my glasses-corrected vision when I'm not looking through 
    the binocs.  One reason I've accidentally seen a number of flashing 
    geosynchs was because I was wearing my glasses.  Then there are 
    the occasional unexpected flares and flashes from otherwise faint
    LEOs.  Also, due to wearing glasses I can see sporadic meteors.  
    The only time I don't wear my glasses is when looking through Mike 
    McCants' telescope eyepiece or finder.
