Fed up of cheap reading glasses

They were never meant to be part of your life. It was just another day on a routine shopping trip, after a morning of straining to read this month’s bank statement and the small print on product labels, when you finally decided enough is enough and paused as you passed the revolving rack of shame. You casually rotated the stand, trying to give off an air of passive interest, and then, when nobody was looking your way, slyly whisked a pair into the… Read more

How long to get used to blended vision?

Presbyopia, or age related reading vision changes, can cause eye strain and headaches, reduces your ability to read small print and makes it near enough impossible to do anything close-up. And if that wasn’t enough, when you look for a solution for it, you’re bound to come away even more frustrated. For something that impacts millions of people around the world — 11 million in the US alone — and is pretty much guaranteed to affect anyone beyond the age of 40, this is… Read more

What age can I expect to need reading glasses?

Age-related long sight, getting old, poor lighting; there are many ways people describe and deal with the loss in vision quality they experience as they get older. But if you want to get technical, the accurate medical term is presbyopia — literally meaning ‘ageing eye’. It describes the loss in elasticity of the lens of the eye that results in the inability to read small print and focus on objects up close. Along with a decline in memory, a bad back, and finding yourself watching… Read more

You don’t need to suffer with reading glasses or bi-focals

Squinting when trying to read fine print, holding the newspaper farther and farther away from your face, avoiding labels on products when shopping — sound familiar? To anyone who’s suffering from presbyopia, the term for loss of near focusing ability that typically occurs in your mid-forties, these symptoms may sound all too familiar. Whether after a discussion with your optician, or self-diagnosis and treatment, the first step many people try is often a simple pair of reading glasses. As you may have… Read more

How good a solution to reading glasses is Laser Eye Surgery?

Do you sometimes feel like you’d do anything to free yourself from those irritating rims that always seem to disappear or break? Even the inconvenience of having to find them every time you need to read something is enough to make you cry out in frustration and throw them as far as the eye can see. But, usually just as quickly as the feeling arises, it settles, and you continue getting on with the rest of your day. That is at least until… Read more

How does blended Laser Eye Surgery work?

If you’re anything like me, you won’t dive into a new therapy, course of medication, or treatment until you know everything there is to know about it. It’s an admirable trait — albeit one that can become annoying when encountering conflicting information and reviews online, to later realise you’ve spent six hours non-stop staring at a screen. Fortunately, your research session today won’t end with you as a whirring, hazy lump, lying eyes wide on the couch or in bed. Here we’re going… Read more

Your sight as you get older

From the moment we are born, we’re fighting against our ever-ticking biological clocks. Scientists believe before the age of 25 we’re pretty good at winning this fight, our bodies temporarily recovering from the effects of ageing and cell death. However, when we reach about the age of 40, ageing ramps up its army and weapons arsenal, and the real battle gets underway. After the body has dug deep into its reserves and recruited the last of its troops, the death of cells in the body… Read more

How cool are reading glasses?

Going by the mass of megastars who frequently don corrective eyewear, including Rihanna, Megan Fox, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Justin Beiber, it’s no wonder that people the world over believe glasses to be cool.  I mean, if anyone knows about ‘cool’ it’s Vivienne Westwood, and she is regularly seen sporting a pair of high-end specs. She even suggests they are more than just a fashion symbol and rather a thinking tool, saying “I can’t think without my glasses”. But for the number… Read more

Presbyopia: Symptoms and treatments of reading glasses

In your early to mid-40s, it’s likely you’ll begin to experience a deterioration in the quality of your vision. At first, you may notice slight difficulty focusing on objects at close distances. This is expected — in fact, most of the population experience it between the ages of 40-60. You’ll probably think nothing of it, dismissing it as “just another sign of getting older.” But the annoyance persists, causing you to hold materials further and further away from your face until your arm isn’t… Read more

Hate your reading glasses?

If you’ve ever worn glasses for even a short amount of time, you’ll be familiar with the feeling of loathing that seeps in due to their innately restrictive and inconvenient nature. I mean, as corrective eyewear, glasses should only make our lives easier. But the reality is they can make it infinitely more stressful, starting with the inexcusable fact that even though their purpose is to help us see more clearly, in order to use them, we must first be able to see… Read more
