As we age, almost everyone will need reading glasses. This is normal, but why does it happen? Throughout life, the internal lens of the eye progressively hardens and loses its ability to automatically change shape. So, as time passes, the muscle system that controls the shape also weakens. This decreased ability to focus on near objects is called presbyopia, which is usually noticeable by age 45. Thanks to advancements in technology, reading glasses are not the only option; laser vision correction surgery can correct your near vision.
Being properly evaluated by your vision correction surgeon is the only way to determine what solution, if any, is best for you.
