Are you finding yourself holding your daily newspaper at arm’s length just to make out that tiny print? Has reading in general become a challenge because of your eyesight? If you are around middle age or older, it is likely you have developed a highly common eye condition called presbyopia, and that you are simply in need of a good pair of reading glasses from our Philadelphia optical goods store, Eye Encounters. Presbyopia is an eye condition in which the lens of your eye becomes less and less flexible, which eventually begins to inhibit your ability to focus on objects close-up. Though presbyopia often seems to occur suddenly, its symptoms are actually the result of years and years of the lens’s loss of flexibility. Patients usually tend to notice the change in vision in their early 40s or so.
Presbyopia is simply a natural part of the aging process. It does not matter if you have had vision problems at any other point in your life when it comes to presbyopia development. Some symptoms associated with presbyopia are the aforementioned need to hold reading materials at arm’s length to see them clearly, blurry vision at a normal reading distance, eye fatigue, and headaches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, a basic eye examination can confirm a diagnosis of presbyopia. If you are diagnosed with presbyopia, you will be happy to know that it can easily be treated with the use of reading glasses. We have a wide variety of stylish and effective reading glasses here at our Philadelphia optical goods store. Our friendly team of staff here at Eye Encounters would be happy to help you find the perfect pair of reading glasses so that you no longer have to struggle with those uncomfortable presbyopia symptoms.
