I've never had a problem differentiating between "affect" and "effect." They are spelled differently and pronounced differently (however slight that difference may seem). Impact as a verb is used primarily by the moderately educated and the pretentious, such as weather forecasters who say things like: "The liquid precipitation will impact your commute tomorrow morning," when they should just tell us that it's going to rain.
