EYESIGHT WITH AGE: LIVING WITH PRESBYOPIA
Do you find yourself removing your glasses to read something close, or taking them off to see something in the distance? This could be a sign of presbyopia, a normal age-related eye problem that changes your eye’s ability to focus, which will continue to progress over time. At first, you may find yourself holding menus or newspapers farther away. As presbyopia progresses, these small annoyances may become larger inconveniences in your daily routine. If you already wear prescription lenses, you may need to wear bifocal or progressive lenses instead.
While purchasing ready-made reading glasses at the store may seem like a quick fix, in actuality, these glasses are not personalized to you, or your prescription. Getting glasses with lenses custom-made for you will make all the difference in the way you see.
