except for your second criterion above, I discovered the answer many  
years ago: don't
correct your vision, or de-correct it so that it becomes less than  

After years of being 20-40 inches from a monitor, my vision was  
optimized for that distance,
without glasses.   I didn't believe that I needed glasses for  
distance, because my vision as a
child had been something like 15-20 (better than normal).   In denial  
that I needed glasses for
distance, finally I realized something was wrong when I started  
missing the exits on the
freeways in California for lack of being able to read them at a  
distance.  Before getting a
prescription and glasses, I had thought the sign painters just  
weren't doing a good job.
With the new glasses, it took so long to get used to seeing every  
leaf on a tree, all the detail
of peoples' faces that previously was soft, that the glasses were  
almost too much reality, and
I preferred when not driving to leave my vision the way it was: a  
softer, friendlier reality.
