can you use a camera with glasses or do they get in the way? stupid question.. but simple
would i have to use contacts?
what should i do
im thinking about getting a job as a camera operator but my distance vision is a bit blurry not by much but might be noticeable if you look hard enough
… should i just drop the idea of camera operator?

Every camcorder I’ve used has a diopter adjustment for the eyepiece, except for one model which didn’t have an eyepiece…. only an LCD monitor. And it sounds like you’re near-sighted, so you can clearly see the camcorder controls and the LCD monitor. I think you’re OK. If your distance vision is really bad, you probably need some bifocal glasses made 8) , for shooting unpredictable action such as sporting events.
If you really want to be a camera operator, go for it! 😀

I have been wearing glasses since teenage. And that’s exactly when I started using my dad’s 8 mm camera. Over 30 years later I am still in glasses making my living as a news cameraman.
It’s a little bit tricky, but absolutely possible. Good luck with the job. Hope you like it.
