When I was a kid, I was luck enough to have perfect vision. Considering my entire family wore glasses, I was more than a little bit excited about this. The older I got, though, the harder it was for me to see things like my insurance card or the menu at the restaurant. I started having my kids read things to me that were just a tad bit too small for me to see clearly. I finally broke down about 5 years ago and grabbed a pair of reading glasses off the shelf at my local drug store. I wasn’t ready to head to the eye doctor and deal with my vision issues properly. If I HAD gone to the eye doctor 5 years ago, I would have discovered that I am not just ‘getting old’…my vision issues issues actually have a name. It is called Presbyopia.

What is Presbyopia? It is not really a disease – it’s just a medical term for what happens to our eyes when we age. In young people, the eye’s lens is soft and flexible. It readily changes shape to help our eyes focus. As you age, the lens in your eye hardens and becomes less flexible. With this loss of flexibility, it is harder for our eyes to focus on things. Hence, the need for reading glasses as we get older. But, if you haven’t figure it out by now…reading glasses can be a pain!
Reading Glasses are SUCH a Pain!

I recently went to have my eyes examined and can honestly say that the entire procedure was fascinating. The technology that they have to check our vision has come SO far since the days of the eye chart on the wall of the doctor’s office! The procedure was quick, painless, and very high tech! The eye doctor went over all of the data with me and we discussed how long I have been wearing reading glasses and whether I was a candidate for Multi-Focal Contact Lenses. I left the office with a ton of information, not only about the contact lenses themselves but about my own vision care needs.
