My eyesight started going about 1994-5, right about when I got my first computer. I think I've spent most every day staring at it since. Now I'm wearing a 2.0 to see distance, and 4.0 to read.
Reading is one of the two greatest pleasures of my life, and I cannot imagine life without it.
I remember having to stop and focus my eyes on distant objects at work to relax them, because I always had my nose in an oscilloscope or some other piece of test equipment. They used to hurt badly sometimes.
I used to always spend weekends in the woods every chance I got to recharge, and I have lost contact with that too in recent years...Another of my greatest pleasures :).
