Why cant I read anymore ?
Its all down to a thing called Presbyopia
You may notice as you get older that you struggle to read in a dimly lit room or at
very close range. When we are younger, the lens in our eye is able to very cleverly
change its shape to allow us to focus both near and far. From the age of around 40,
this ability becomes more difficult as the lens becomes more rigid than it once was
and unfortunately this is part of the ageing process.
Our optometrists recognise this process and will guide you through it, we discuss
your lifestyle and how much extra focusing power you need to boost your eyesight.
For instance, you may work on a computer or do a lot of close up reading so we will
assess how your eyes are changing during regular vision tests.
