Starting to have difficulty reading? If so, and you're aged over 45, then you're probably experiencing presbyopia. This is not a disease, but is caused by the natural ageing process of your eyes. It affects nearly everyone as they get older and restricts their ability to focus easily on close objects. The result is blurred vision or tired eyes, especially when reading in poor light.

Fortunately, we're able to help you deal with this condition. For example, if you have never needed vision correction before, you may now just require reading glasses for close work.However, if you already wear spectacles, then you have several choices. You may decide to have different glasses for distance and reading, although this can be inconvenient. Or you may choose a pair which performs both functions, such as bifocal or varifocal spectacles.

Varifocal (also known as progressive) lenses are the modern solution.
