    3. My eyesight is mixed with astigmatic and long-sighted.
    4. I am presbyopia.

    Default Re: eyesight

    Hi Ju

    As a NES, but not a teacher, I would have said:

    1. I am astigmatic.
    2. I am both astigmatic and short-sighted.
    3, I am both
    astigmatic and long-sighted.
    4. I am presbyopic.

    5, I am both
    astigmatic and presbyopic.

    "My eyesight is mixed .." doesn't work for me

    Presbyopia is a noun for long-sightedness (inability to focus on near objects) rather than an adjective.


    Hope this helps
