Yea, formalities for another world could be completely different. If the author wanted to do that(and completely change the target audience), they could have said "you must strip yourself bare in front of the king. This shows your loyalty by presenting everything to him, and proves you do not intend him harm" for instance. They could have also chosen different imperial units such as maderaka (page 5&6, from Handyman Saitou In Another World).

Yes, my eyes are also getting less visible as I get older. I'm sure they'll have completely disappeared sometime soon.

@Fiora It's not like there's any way their etiquette rules might vary in any way from our olden time noble's rules...speaking of, which nation and era should she have looked up since they vary wildly...oh, that's a problem for your quip isn't it...

It's not like she could teleport to our world and just check basic etiquette. Oh wait...

Something in the translation seems off. Presbyopia (From ancient Greece meaning "Old Sight") affects EVERYONE beginning around age 40 as the lenses in your eyes harden due to age. Barring any other problems with your eyes, you will initially find it impossible to focus on up-close (~6-12 inches) text and as you age further the distance increases until you get to the joke about a person needing arm extensions so they can read the pages of a book they're holding in their hands. For someone only having the issues of Presbyopia, a simple cheap pair of reading glasses you can buy at any drug store can compensate. In my own case, however, I also developed astigmatism as I aged and simple reading glasses don't help.

Wait are you guys serious you've never looked for reading glasses before have you? They sell them without a prescription and in sets so you can use the correction that is best for you, so the way its presented in the chapter seems like she just brought out one of these sets. Perfectly reasonable for low cost over the counter glasses.

Even though the king was being informal, he was still judging MC's actions in the end.

Authors of mangas beeing like:
I dont really know how the western kings looks like lets just put a beard and a crown. Ah and also I dont know court etiquette so lets just say the king is easy going so the MC dont have to abide to court rules.

hate those kind of troupes -.-

The King exclaims that his sight is sharper and that the glasses "has two" meaning he is used to monocles. I don't think medieval monocles are better for maintaining eyesight than modern day reading glasses.

Prescription glasses and reading glasses are different. Reading glasses as said are specifically for old people with otherwise good eyesight which has been declining, while everyone here is likely relatively young and have had to have prescription glasses. See the below link for info!

Loli angel turns out to be a cunning devil. Looks like we found a real loli to replace Mitsuha. Now to just stage an accident to transfer her powers.

And my god I am glad I don't need glasses.

whiles she is not an optometrist, she did say "because each is different, try to find one that look best". And on the page before, you can see that each have magnification strength level.
Although I do think that the author could have add one more page to make the prime minister and the king try a different one that end up better. I think she didn't think it through because it the first time the king try on a glasses, everything look better instantly on the first try.
If you wear glasses and still remember the first time you getting the test You know what I'm talking about.
Me: "Holy S, you suppose to be able to read that?! Is this how normal people see the world"
OP:*click* " How about this"
Me: "Holy hell, it can get sharper?!"
