You'd be surprised how many pros do it this way. It's all about what is most functional and comfortable for the individual.

I leave 'em on. For me, it is too much trouble to take glasses off and put them back on every time I'm making a shot. I do sometimes slide them down on my nose when using live view - hard to focus on the close stuff sometimes!

Yeah. I'm extremely nearsighted--my natural focus point is about six inches before my eyes. Great for Live View, so I look over the top of my glasses for that (back in my film days, I didn't use a loupe).

By the same token, I can't see beyond six inches with glasses off so they are always on. I don't have any real problem with it. For a number of years I used contact lenses, but frankly my vision is more critically acute with glasses.

Now that I'm presbyopic in addition to being myopic, that's more true than ever: Bifocal contacts are not for people who want to see well, they're for people who want to look good.

For straps I prefer the Domke Gripper (1-inch model). I do not like a bouncy strap at all, nor do I like a lot of bulk. I can wrap the Domke around my wrist. It's soft and absorbent. The twist-free metal turnbuckles are secure and don't require me to pay attention to the orientation of the strap when I clip it on.

I just got one of the Hoodman flip-up glasses. Only been out in the field twice with them, but so far I think it will work well for me.

I wear mine while shooting. I just pull them down on my nose and look over them through the view finder. When I need them for changing settings or checking DOF I just pull them back up into place.
