Since you hit your 40s, do you find yourself needing to use reading glasses more and more? Reading glasses take you out of the moment. You have to adjust them on and off to see the right distances, which completely spoils any sense of spontaneity. Then of course, you lose them or break them. This common phenomenon is known as presbyopia. Take it from us: it can take years to get used to reading glasses. That\u2019s why we\u2019ve put together this article on how to avoid reading glasses. Many people think that wearing reading glasses is a fate, that you just have to accept \u2013 but this is not true! We have another option available for you. What is presbyopia? Presbyopia is the condition of ageing eyes. It\u2019s when the internal \u2018lens\u2019 of your eye ages over time and becomes harder and less flexible. This means that you\u2019ll have trouble panning (being able to see specific distances). You\u2019ll know if you have it, say if you have to hold reading material further away from yourself to see it. If this is left untreated, it can develop into cataracts. This is a severe condition that can devastatingly reduce your ability to see clearly, function independently and can lead to a total loss of vision. When people get presbyopia, they start wearing reading glasses to combat their declining vision. But as mentioned earlier, they come with a multitude of problems. Not only are they fragile and awkward, but they\u2019re expensive to replace and your prescriptions will inevitably keep on changing over time. How can lens replacement surgery help?

You\u2019ll be able to tap into your adventurous side without thinking. What better way to conquor how to avoid reading glasses?
