If your eyes are crapping out on you, you might find this 3" shade hood to be a useful alternative. I keep one on a lanyard around my neck, and often use it to help me use my iPhone as a camera, when I'm not wearing reading glasses. It has the advantages of a shade hood, with a built in 3 X power lens.
