Unfortunately people with 20+/20 vision tend to need reading glasses as they age beyond 40 because  the  focussing muscles in the eye have to become ever stronger to deal with an increasingly rigid lens in the eye. As a result I now need almost a magnifying glass to solder any electronics.

If like my wife the vanity aspect of wearing contacts/spectacles appals then either save up to have your eyes lasered or start doing eye strengthening exercises which may help delay the inevitable.
