Wrong way round. Us short-sighted (myopic) people can see things extremely close to us but not anything at a distance. Long-sightedness is the inability to close focus.

Yes, you are right. Thanks for the correction. I repeated an oft used misnomer many use, ie that they have short sighted problems.

I am short sighted and can see a close up LCD easily even though over 60.

You are lucky and statistically exceptional.

I doubt if the camera manufacturers are really going to base camera design around people who cannot focus closer than 24" who will have problems in every area without help.

No, probably not. Although a minority, the number is quite sizable in being most older people plus a few younger ones. It would cost almost nothing for manufacturers to offer a choice of different font sizes/styles so at least Long sighted owners had a fighting chance of reading data without glasses. It really depends on whether the design teams wish to appeal to a wider audience as happens in other industries.
