Reading Glasses

Why do we need Reading Glasses?

Reading glasses are designed to treat presbyopia, which is a condition that most adults experience once they reach the age of 35 to 45. Presbyopia is caused by decreased elasticity in the eye's lens that makes objects difficult to see from close range. These glasses come in generic strengths to improve the wearer's vision when reading. Standard reading glasses are only designed to view objects at close range, which is why bifocals are commonly used to shift between short range and distance vision. Reading glasses are not designed to correct vision problems, and unlike prescription glasses, are not designed for full-time use.
