If you’re in your early 40s, you may have noticed a few changes in recent years, including:
● You find yourself holding menus, books, and magazines ever further from your face to read them.
● You get headaches or eye fatigue when doing up-close tasks like writing by hand or small, detailed tasks.
● Your quality of vision changes throughout the day: your vision is blurry upon waking or things get blurrier as the day goes on.
● While you’re driving, you notice that the speedometer is a little out of focus when you glance down at it.
● You carry around more than one pair of glasses to use throughout the day.
If any of these things sound familiar, you’re not alone. Presbyopia is the clinical term for changes that come with aging, making it difficult to see clearly at close distances. If you’re experiencing any of these signs of presbyopia, it might be time for bifocal glasses.
