Seen in the image above, the soft lens in your eye gradually begins to stiffen as enter middle-age. This condition is perfectly common and you might experience difficulty focusing on nearby objects during daily tasks. Reading or close-vicinity work can become more strenuous which can lead to headaches and frustration. Even if you’ve never required to wear specs, reading glasses are a good solution for the inevitable symptoms of presbyopia. Basic activities that have become difficult to focus on can be corrected with a pair of good quality reading eyeglasses. We sometimes get requests to gauge reading glasses strength by age, but this really isn't a good measure compared to a full eye exam or atleast a close reading test.
