It will happen to most of us…one day we are easily reading a story in the newspaper and the next day we can’t see the words clearly.
According to statistics from the Baylor College of Medicine, nearly 90% of people over the age of 45 wear glasses all or most of the time.
As we get older, our eyes lose the ability to focus on objects close to us and this is called presbyopia.
The crystalline lens inside the eye loses elasticity so the eye is not able to focus as well up close and signs of presbyopia usually begin around the young age of 40.
If you have good distance vision but have found it difficult to focus up close, a stylish pair of reading glasses will help you overcome the inconvenience.
Glasses for reading are not to be used to correct vision; these glasses are used in addition to your existing contact lens or over the naked eye.
If you need glasses to read the newspaper or piles of paperwork at the office, you probably need them for the computer and television screens as well.
Eyestrain is something you need to take care of right away, but, don’t despair, there is now a large selection of eyeglasses and they can be found at Contact Lenses 4U.
