I also have a problem with photography as a glasses wearer. All I can say is that practice helps a lot. Faster lenses (on your camera not in your glasses!) helps also. Some will recommend you get a magnifying eyepiece but in my experience that hinders those with glasses. Others will prefer a split prism finder, but that gets in the way of actually seeing what you are shooting.

I am happy taking most of my shots using manual focus with the stock K20D hardware. Yes, practice.

The focus thing is bothering me a bit as I did do the exercise last night of looking close-up at one of my "slightly missing the mark" photos, and I could see that the point of clearest focus is not where I thought it was when I took the picture.
The question is, what made you think the focus was where you thought it would be? Did you choose the AF point to use? Have you experimented to find out how broad the focus points are?
